ALBA IS PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE 2010 EVALUATION OF BREEDING STOCK AND A JUDGE’S SEMINAR TO BE CONDUCTED BY MR. ATJAN HOP OF THE NETHERLANDS

Mr. Atjan Hop is a founding member of The Lipizzan International Federation (LIF) and the Lipizzan breed has been his passion throughout his life. He has studied the history and genealogy of the breed which has included visiting all the stud farms, past and present to search for historical records and pedigrees dating back to the 1700′s and in some cases earlier. For numerous years, Mr. Hop has been the leading authority on pedigrees and their accuracy for most Lipizzan registries around the world. Mr. Hop has also conducted evaluations in several countries (Denmark, Austria, Germany, Slovakia and The Netherlands) as well as participated as a team member during evaluations at Piber, Vienna and Lipica. Mr. Hop is an ardent rider of his Lipizzan stallion and has for several years studied under Portuguese masters as well as giving occasional exhibitions riding and on the long rein. Mr. Hop is currently writing a book on the history of the various bloodlines within the Lipizzan breed particularly as it regards the mare lines. This book will be published in the near future.
