Swedish Studbook Hosts Best of Three Worlds Breeders' Meeting April 17 at the World Cup Finals

Las Vegas, NV--The Swedish Studbook (ASVH) welcomes guests to a unique breeders' meeting at the Thomas & Mack Arena on Friday April 17. The event kicks off at 8:00 a.m. sharp during the Rolex FEI World Cup Finals in Las Vegas. The ASVH hopes to create an inspiring experience for breeders across borders. Best of Three Worlds has been chosen for the theme for this meeting as international guests arrive from Sweden, the Netherlands, and, of course, the U.S.A. The vice president of the studbook's Stallion Committee, Jan-Ove Olsson, will represent the ASVH in Las Vegas.

The Swedish Studbook, in cooperation with Karin Reid Offield, owner of the breeding stallion Lingh, invites everyone interested in learning about breeding to attend this great event. Attendees will enjoy the unique behind the scčnes setting of the early morning warm-up of the World Cup Finals, which was arranged with the help of Las Vegas Events, producers of the show. Attendees must have a ticket to the dressage session on Friday to attend the breeders' meeting. (The box office will open at 8:00 a.m. on Friday morning for last minute ticket sales.)

Both dressage and jumping breeders will find topics and speakers of interest. Subjects include the development of breeding internationally, relationships between studbooks and countries, management of top horses in breeding and cooperation between breeders and riders. Top riders, trainers and owners from around the world have confirmed their attendance at the meeting. The commercial issues of the breeding world will also be discussed, including the importance of export, active efforts in marketing and establishing contacts. The sessions will be interactive with attendees invited to ask questions of the speakers.

As special invited guest speakers, the Royal Dutch Warmblood Studbook (KWPN) and the Swedish Warmblood Association of North America (SWANA) will share information about their systems and organizations. Points of interest include, the future development of the American sporthorse breeding market and how to encourage young equestrians to become breeders.

Flyinge, the Swedish National Stud, will also make a special presentation. The newly appointed breeding manager, Karl-Henrik Heimdahl, will share Flyinge's vision of the future. Flyinge will also participate this fall in the hosting of the annual meeting of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBSFH) and is proud to take an active role in international breeding.

Meeting attendees have a chance to win a County Saddle, the saddle recommended by the winner of the 2005 Las Vegas World Cup Grand Prix--Lingh himself. In addition, a breeding to Briar 899 has been donated by the stallion's breeder and owner Hans-Yngve Göransson. Briar has competed in eight World Cups, three Olympic Games, four European Championships and two World Championships. Stop by booth 405 (Tailwinds Farm) in the Cox Pavilion in the Thomas & Mack Center to register to win the saddle and the breeding to Briar 899.

Breeding has become an essential part of the modern equestrian culture and the 2009 ASVH Breeders' Meeting showcases the best of the three worlds and will hopefully create a new way of including breeders in international equestrian events in the future.

An educational and entertaining encounter for everyone sharing an interest in sport horse breeding begins Friday morning April 17 at the Thomas & Mack Center. Join us 8:00 - 9:30 a.m. at arena section 227, balcony level.

For those enthusiasts seeking even more time to explore their passion, they can visit Harrah's, the host hotel for the AVSH. Breeders can gather for late dinners and discussions of each day's events. There is a SWANA members cocktail party at 4:00-6:00 p.m. on Saturday at the Embassy Suites. Karl-Henrick Heimovahl, Jan-Ove Olsson and Bo Jena will be there.
