Among the many services provided, example of record times was – delivery of new cartas following Inscription in two months, one month for assessment and 15 days for changes in ownership.
The ANCCE Stud Book promotional work is essential for its managers. Due to this, last year, 25 international revision tours were take; fairs and congresses were attended to offer information to horse owners; an annual meeting with the international representatives was held and the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH).
At this last WBFSH meeting, the only international federation for sport horse stud books in the world, held in Philadelphia, it was decided that the 2011 annual meeting would take place in Spain and will be organized by ANCCE. This meeting, held for the first time on the Iberian Peninsula, will be a major opportunity to promote the Spanish Horse asa high performance breed in competitive disciplines.
In the short time that ANCCE has inherited the P.R.E. Stud Book – a task that was commended by the government of Spain as the ultimate custodian of the breed – it has increased its indexes of quality. effectiveness and reliability. This has earned ANCCE international recognition and today it is considered to be a reference model for other equine breeds, especially in Europe.
In this regard, at the first American Congress of the Purebred Spanish horse, celebrated last autumn in Mexico, the latin american associations supported ANCCE’s work as the Stud Book agent with a document edited by the associations of Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Nicaragua and Honduras.
