For four whole days in late April 2019, the Alps Coliseum Equestrian Sports Centre revolved entirely around Haflinger and Noriker horses, when in spite of the changeful April weather, horse fans from near and far made their way to Egna/Neumarkt to catch a glimpse of approximately 200 magnificent and perfectly groomed horses. The 2019 stud book registration will no doubt be remembered as an all-round success that faithfully captured the high-quality status quo of today's breeding activities in South Tyrol.

Zuri Maris crowned most beautiful out of 121 new Haflinger mares

A total of 121 Haflinger mares born in the year 2016 – all lovingly prepared and skilfully presented – were lined up before Haflinger experts Christine Kofler and Helmuth Breitenberger, who were well aware of their great responsibility and went to great lengths to describe and evaluate the horses correctly.

Equipped with striking typical characteristics and harmony, Zuri Maris BZ28884, a William-S daughter owned by Alois Schweigkofler from Renon/Ritten, was proclaimed best mare of her year. Z-Tebby BZ28969, a Winterstern-O offspring owned by Peter Marini from Appiano/Eppan with plenty of typical features alongside a harmonious and graceful structure, was selected as runner-up, followed by Zabea BZ28850 out of sire Weltherr-W, whose owner is Daniel Senn from Villandro/Villanders).
