Chr. Lauer, Nürnberg” and “Gesetzlich Geschützt” on the reverse; measuring 42.68 mm (w) x 52.32 mm (h); weighing 15.1 grams.

The Badge was instituted by the German National Federation for the Breeding and Testing of Thoroughbreds in April 1930, to increase interest in equestrian sports among German youth, as well as to encourage good horsemanship.

In the years following its establishment, the Badge received an official sanction from Adolf Hitler and became a national award.

The Badge was conferred in three grades, bronze, silver and gold.

The Bronze Badge was awarded to recognize merit and success within individual horse races.
