Seven dressage colts were approved for Hanoverian breeding at the 2018 Hanoverian Stallion Approval in Verden, Germany, on 11 December 2018.

A large group of stallion owners presented their newly licensed 2.5 year olds colts in Verden today, but the lot also included colts from 2015, 2014 and three older ones. 

Twenty-four stallions were presented, of which fifteen were approved. Seven of the approved colts are dressage bred.

Only one received a premium title, Andreas Helgstrand and Paul Schockemöhle's Dancier x Floriscount that became champion of the 2018 Westfalian Stallion Licensing. 

Amongst the approved dressage stallions were also the Swedish bred Springbank II and the small tour level trained Goldberg (Hubertus Schmidt).  Rejected for Hanoverian breeding were, for instance, Wahler's Dante Alighieri (by Dante Weltino) as well as Helgstrand's KWPN bred Janeiro Platinum (by Sezuan)
