COVID-19 Impact on AHR

The Board of Directors decided at its June 10th meeting that because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty of the future with respect to restrictions on large gathering events that it would not be possible to hold our National Showcase Event in 2020. The event will be rescheduled for 2021, when we hope our lives have returned to a more normal routine.

The combined AHR and Haflinger Breeder’s Co-op (“HBC”) futurity that was to be held with the National Showcase has not been cancelled. We are working with the HBC to continue our partnership on the futurity with the event tentatively scheduled for the first weekend in October. Although this event is subject to less of the risks than the full National Showcase event, we will monitor restrictions on large gatherings events over the next few months and along with HBC will make a final decision on the event as new information becomes available.

World Show Postponed

The AHR Board is passing along the information received today on the postponement of the World Haflinger Show in Ebbs, Austria for May of 2020. We join our fellow breeders in Europe and around the world in disappointment that the event had to be delayed, but in light of the on-going COVID-19 epidemic in Northern Italy and spreading across Europe we understand and support the move taken by the Tirol Breeders’ Association and the World Haflinger organizations. We look forward to the event in June 2021 and wish our friends in Austria, Italy, Germany, the Netherlands and the remainder of Europe and the World all the best in fighting and recovering from COVID-19. To all of our members and Haflinger friends in the US we send our thoughts, prayers and best wishes to you and our country as we continue to take unprecedented measures to fight this invisible foe. Stay safe, follow the guidelines and we look forward to seeing everyone this summer as the cloud over the world lifts this summer.

Stay safe and Godspeed
AHR Board of Directors
