Physical Description and Item Details

(Pferdesport Leistungsabzeichen in Silber). Constructed of oval shaped silvered bronze; the obverse consisting of an oak wreath with a horseshoe and the letter “R” at the base, with a rider on a horse; the reverse plain, with a vertical pinback, with a barrel hinge, and a flat wire catch; marked “L. Chr. Lauer, Nürnberg” and “Gesetzlich Geschützt” on the reverse; measuring 41.96 mm (w) x 51.86 mm (h); weighing 16.3 grams; in overall extremely fine condition.


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 Silver Badge was awarded to recognize achievements in horsemanship tournaments and activities.
