This year’s AGM took place in the middle of Germany in an atmosphere of friendship and constructive exchange of ideas. The complete board was confirmed unanimous for another four years. The review of the president showed many activities and timeless efforts of each of the board members who have telephone conferences once a month.
Beside many administration tasks and regulations to follow up the activities went from Egyptian Event Europe and stud farm tours to Marocco 2015, through Germany 2016, Italy 2018 and visiting Kuwait this springtime as a big group of German breeders to newsletters several times a year and listening to the proposals of the members. This was a reason to look for invitations of a breeder for the AGM or having a meeting including horses as last year in Bavaria. This year the day of the purebred Arabian horse in Bavaria will be on the 21st and 22nd of September 2019.
In order to have more communication with the members and under each other the preparation of a new website was not easy but finally successful and the participants of the meeting agreed to the new version of the homepage presented by Bettina von Kameke. They also discussed and voted for an advertising pricelist which each member can use to present a stud, breeding, banner or horses for sale. The ad-fee will be used to pay for professional articles for our new website of more presence.
After finding a new location for the Egyptian Event Europe it was Heike Hain and her family who managed to organize three times a beautiful EEEs at the castle Dyck close to Düsseldorf. Everybody was glad and thankful for this historical scenery but this year the date of the EEE had to change because of ECAHO reasons and that was a problem for Dyck. Again a lot of research and kilometers but surprise, surprise, Heike was again successful and at the AGM she could announce the new facility at Schloss Löwenstein one hour south of Frankfurt. Everybody was happy to hear this news and is looking forward having a splendid Egyptian Event Europe 2019 at the 10th of August in a marvellous place which is used to hoof beats.
It was a pleasure to see the horses at the Hägerhof of the family Dill after finishing the AGM. The attitude towards the horses and the way of holding an living with them was more than impressive and very natural. As star of the program and winner of the licensing the stallion GF Basim was presented under saddle but also the youngsters and the offspring in the big barn showed their quality and easy character. Many thanks for this lovely experience and pictures of Nicole Sachs.
