NEW MEETING BETWEEN ANCCE AND USPRE
ANCCE President Javier Conde and PRE Stud Book Director, Arancha Rodríguez visit the new facilities
Recently, a meeting was held between ANCCE and USPRE (United States PRE Association). This meeting was possible thanks to the collaboration agreement signed during SICAB last year, to reiterate the good relationships between both institutions.
Javier Conde, President of ANCCE and Arancha Rodríguez, Director of the PRE Stud Book, were received by Kimberly van Kampen Boyer, President of USPRE and Alexander Zilo, Vice-President of USPRE and ANCCE Representative in the United States. They showed them the new facilities in Wellington, Florida and introduced them to the Stud Book staff in the USA, Tanya Duffey and Silvia Muñoz.
The two days of work among the directors of both organizations were very fruitful, since a number of topics of interest for the North American breeders were discussed, including conformation competitions, standard Stud Book procedures, collaboration in dressage, etc. Progress was made about a number of activities that are planned. These activities contemplate the possible organization of a National USPRE-ANCCE Championship in the USA and the organization of a TQB.
USPRE is the largest PRE association in the United States; with more than 800 members distributed throughout the country. Likewise, this association has extensive experience in promoting the Spanish horse. In the agreement signed between both institutions, the North American association was designated as collaborators of the only official register for the PRE horse in the world that officially backed by Spain’s Ministry of Agriculture, Food and the Environment, which offers new advantages for the USA breeders.
