Attention 2016 Golden Path and Ambassador Participants!

Posted by on Jul 31, 2017 in From AHR, News and Events | 0 comments

Attention 2016 Golden Path and Ambassador Participants!

The switch to a FREE program was wildly successful, because we went from a total of 51 enrolled in 2015, to 169 in 2016! It has been so fabulous to see what everyone is doing with their Haflingers, but unfortunately that GIANT growth did result in a bit of a time lag as the Points & Award Committee worked to find suitable recognition and awards for SO many participants!

The wait is finally over, and those who reached Golden Path Milestones and Ambassador Performance Award Levels should watch their mailboxes! To honor and recognize your achievements, Golden Path participants will receive a personalized medallion, suitable as a keychain or bridle tag, and AHR Ambassadors will receive custom stall plaques highlighting your accomplishments.

Congrats on a great 2016, and keep up all your fabulous Haflinger activities in 2017! Not enrolled yet? Click here to sign up now for free!

Futurity Announcements!

The AHR National Futurity has a new date and location! In response to the many requests by exhibitors to move the futurity earlier in the year, we have moved this year’s futurity up to the weekend of August 25-26, 2017! The Futurity will be held at WK Farm (Windy Knoll Farm), a privately owned equestrian facility only 12.8 miles northeast of the Ashland County Fairgrounds.

Additionally, due to the confusion with the office being closed and its change of address, we are extending the deadline for the mare and stallion nominations to the same deadline as futurity horse nominations and waiving the late fee for this year…..

Ocular Squamous Cell Carcinoma Update – Testing Now Available!

Posted by on Jan 1, 2017 in Haflinger Happenings, News and Events | 0 comments

Ocular Squamous Cell Carcinoma Update – Testing Now Available!

Researchers at UC-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory investigated SCC in the Haflinger breed and determined that a recessive mode of inheritance explains some of the genetic components involved in the development of this cancer. They also discovered a DNA marker that identifies horses at higher risk to develop limbal and/or third eye lid SCC. The VGL now offers a DNA-based test for the only known genetic risk factor for SCC in horses, which you can find here.
