    General Assembly of the Spanish Federation of Horse Breeders’ Associations (FEACC) reaches future work agreements and new proposals to present before the Ministry

    On Thursday, the 29th of June, the FEACC General Assembly was held at ANCCE’s main offices in Sevilla to establish the criteria that will govern the organization’s current and long-term work.

    The Federation, integrated by eight associations in Spain that manage purebred horse stud books, established and analyzed the main problems affecting the equine sector and the breeders of registered equines in an effort to find solutions that improve the sector’s situation. Likewise, a number of matters were discussed, including aspects to improve breeding, studying the possibility of aid for the sector, the new and recently approved animal husbandry rules and regulations and points relative to the identification of equines.

    Juan Tirado, the president of the Federation and also the President of ANCCE, provided a detailed analysis of Federation activities over the past year. He reviewed the objectives achieved and how these were attained, as well as other, yet to be accomplished goals. The maximum governing body of FEACC agreed to continue with the work already underway by introducing new lines of action that focus on and are directed to achieving legislative objectives.

    In general terms, the 2017 General Assembly became a new exercise in unification and teamwork of the Spanish Federation of Horse Breeders’ Associations (FEACC), constituted by Spain’s Purebred Spanish Horse Breeders’ Association (ANCCE), the Association of Spanish Sport Horse Breeders (ANCADES), the Purebred Menorca Horse Breeders’ Association (ACPRM), the Breeders’ and Owners’ Association of Trotters (ASTROT), Anglo-Arab Breeders’ Association (AECCAá), Arab Horse Breeders’ Association (AECCA), Thoroughbred Horse Breeders of Spain (ACPSIE) and the Hispano-Arabic Horse Breeders’ Association (UEGHá). All of these associations seek to protect, promote, defend, and share with society information about purebred horse breeds, and more specifically, those that are registered in their corresponding Stud Book. Similarly, these organizations provide the sector with advice and consultancy services while at the same time channeling proposals regarding specific topics, establishing agreements with both private and public organizations.
