    This past December 13, the Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA) General Director of Animal Husbandry signed the Resolution by which ANCCE has been granted the right and responsibility of handling the Purebred Spanish Horse Stud Book. The Press Release issued by the Ministry of Agriculture and found on its Official Web Site is translated below.  Nevertheless, you can also consult the link below: http://www.mapa.es/gabinete/nota.asp?codi=10726_AT131207 The General Director of Animal Husbandry has signed the resolution which officially confirms that ANCCE (National Purebred Spanish Horse Breeders’ Association of Spain) has been granted the right to handle the breed Stud Book.  This concession falls within the current legislation about the selection and reproduction of pure equine breeds, by which the recognition procedure for the equine breeders is comparable to all other farm breeds and species.  Carlos Escribano, General Director of Animal Husbandry for the Ministry of Agriculture has signed a Resolution by which ANCCE (National Purebred Spanish Horse Breeders’ Association of Spain) has been officially recognized to handle the Purebred Spanish Horse Stud Book.  This Resolution is included in the current legislation linked to the reproduction of pure bred equines, by which the recognition procedure for the breeder associations of equine breeds is the same as those of other farm breeds and species, within the general policy of promoting the equine sector, that the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food is undertaking.  Thus, the PRE (Purebred Spanish Horse) is incorporated into the system that follows, in compliance with EU legislation for handling Stud Books, by which the breeder associations are responsible for handling the Stud Books.  ANCCE, until the signing of this resolution, had the concession to handle the Stud Book, and is the only association that had requested the Ministry of Agriculture to be recognized to handle the PRE Stud Book. A breed stud book is an essential tool for the development of a selection scheme and to improve the breed.  The Ministry of Agriculture, as is the case of the other associations, which number approximately 140 in Spain, will provide all its support, together with the various Departments of Genetics at the various Spanish Universities, to collaborate in the design and control of the selection schemes, to advance in the improvement of the quality and the competitiveness of the equine sector.  December 13, 2007
