The ANCCE Board of Directors continues to hold meetings with the breeder associations in Spain
In an effort to have a better understanding of the opinions within the sector on current matters of importance within the field of Purebred Spanish Horse, the ANCCE Board of Directors has continued with its policy of meetings with the various breeder associations in Spain. Recently, meetings were held with the Purebred Spanish Horse Breeders’ Associations in the Region of Murcia—in the city of Murcia on June 20—and the Association of the Community of Valencia (PRECVAL), in Valencia on June 21. Meetings with the associations from Cantabria, Galicia, Ávila and Sevilla are planned soon. These meetings have, in fact, acquired a more important dimension since the Royal Decree 662/2007 was published—thus repealing legislation 1133/2002—and it has become the new legal framework for equines in Spain. With the implications of this Royal Decree on the various breeds, through the corresponding Ministerial Orders, and the practical application of the law, these meetings have been essential for the future legal framework to be based on the majority breeder criteria. In the upcoming weeks, conversations will be held with those associations still pending, to then elaborate a memorandum with the real hopes and expectations for the short and medium term.
