Supporters’ Badge Campaign 2016
Dear Haflinger breeders,
Friends of the Tyrolean Haflinger horse and the Fohlenhof in Ebbs!
After a pause of one year due to the Haflinger World Show, in which much time and money was invested by breeders, the Tyrolean Haflinger Breeding Association is once again starting a “Supporters’ Badge” campaign in 2016.
The revenue will be used exclusively for the preservation and further development of the Haflinger stud farm Fohlenhof Ebbs. This year we have taken on the project:
“Expansion and reinstallation of the audio loudspeaker system in the Fohlenhof Arena”.
The Fohlenhof Arena was officially opened in 24 September 1993, after a construction period of only four months. A loudspeaker system was installed with so-called 100 volt technology. The advantage of this technology is that many loudspeakers can be operated with relatively thin cables at large distances, without any great loss, but unfortunately it also has its constraints and limitations. In terms of quality and performance, this loudspeaker system was designed only for announcements and background music, but not for the digital reproduction of music at its original volume.
A modern sound system was rented for the Haflinger World Show 2015, and contributed to a magnificent success, without any distortion or feedback, especially during the show programmes. Parts of this system were also rented for the last foal auction, which involved a lot of work and, in particular, expense.
Therefore, the committee members of the Tyrolean Haflinger Breeding Association have decided to invest the revenue from the Supporters’ Badge campaign 2016 in the expansion and reinstallation of the loudspeaker system in the Fohlenhof Arena and riding hall.
We respectfully request your support and thank you for your contribution to the preservation and expansion of the world centre of Haflinger horses, the Fohlenhof in Ebbs.
