Dear All,

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that
according to paragraph 6 of the German Animal Welfare Law,
trimming the vibrissae around eyes and muzzle as well as
clipping or cutting the hairs inside the ears of horses are prohibited.

Adherence to this rule at horse shows in Germany is being supervised
by German authorities. Competitors can be fined if their horses are
found unlawfully trimmed or clipped.
Please share this message with all possibly concerned.

Kind regards,

i. A. Imke Lubeseder, Generalsekretariat
