In the US


The American Rhineland Studbook (ARS) is managed as a separate and distinct Studbook by the American Hanoverian Society.  The ARS has adopted and implemented the breeding rules for its Rhineland Studbook similar to those in place for the Rhineland Studbook in Germany. In addition to implementing the Rhineland Studbook, the AHS provides membership services, including combined inspection tours, for both the Hanoverian Studbook and the Rhineland Studbook.
