About the WBFSH

The WBFSH is the only international federation of studbooks for sport horses in the world. The WBFSH is the major connection between the breeding organisations of sport horses and the international equestrian sport (FEI).

Together, FEI and WBFSH have organized the World Breeding Championships for Sport Horses (WBCSH) in dressage, jumping, and eventing since 1992.

Every month the WBFSH/FEI ranking of each discipline is published on the WBFSH website, providing official information on every horse competing at international level all around the world. Pedigree information and studbook rankings are available. At the end of the year, the breeders of the winning horses will be presented the WBFSH Breeding prize at various international competition events in the country of the respective prize winning members.
