Max von Bluecher

1921 - 2004

By Kim MacMillan and Helen Gibble
ATA Distinguished and Charter Member Max von Bluecher, 83, died on September 11, 2004.
Born in 1921 in Teschow, Mecklenburg, Germany, as the son of a farmer and horse breeder, Max worked with horses all of his life. During World War II he was a captain in the German cavalry, being wounded four times. One of these severe injuries occurred in the battle of Stalingrad. He was evacuated to a hospital in Hannover, where he met Karin von Larisch, a veterinary student, who would become his wife in 1944. They came to the United States in 1952, initially to Illinois and then, in 1958, to Minnesota. He first worked as a riding master at the Wayzata Country Club at Lake Minnetonka near Minneapolis, introducing dressage to a strictly hunter/jumper community.
Needing more space when Max and Karin decided to breed horses, they first leased some acreage near the country club and then purchased Fortuna Farm in Long Lake, MN, in 1963, moving there in 1968. At the farm, Max continued to give riding lessons, held annual horse trials and became instrumental in the formation of the Central States Dressage and Combined Training Association (CSDCTA).
Max started breeding with Thoroughbreds and then acquired some Trakehners from Gerda Friedrichs and other sources.
To many ATA members Max was known as the original Chairman of the ATA Inspection Committee. He held this position from the inception of the committee in 1974 until his health prevented him from continuing in 1998. His signature appears as the first of the incorporators on the ATA original formation documents from 1974. He served as one of the initial trustees of the ATA and as Chairman of the ATA Performance Standards Committee. He was also a member of the Registration, Mare and Stallion Approval Committee (later renamed the Registration Committee). He had a standing invitation from the Trakehner Verband to join its inspection commission at the annual stallion markets in Neumünster.
Max was a pioneer in the importation of frozen semen. In the early 70s, he imported straws of frozen Impuls semen which he used to impregnate several of his mares, producing five registered foals.
Max was the breeder of 17 OSB mares, a number of performance horses, and the approved stallions:
Scherzo, foaled 1967, by Antares, out of Stern­loge by Stern xx;

Fasolt, foaled 1972, by Kyrill, out of Forelle by Antares;

Staccato, foaled 1972, by Kyrill, out of Symphony by Antares;

and Adolar, foaled 1973, by Beauté, out of Annemone by Antares.

He is survived by his wife, Karin; his son, Helmuth and his wife, Charlene; daughter, Alexsandra and her husband, Peter von Kiedrowski; granddaughter, Tescha; grandson, Eric; step-grand­children, Marina, Elona, Robyn and Thea, and great-grandchildren, Alex, Austin, Charly and Ethan.
A memorial service for Max was held at the farm on September 18. Notes of sympathy can be sent to the family at: Fortuna Farm, 1425 Tamarack Drive, Long Lake, MN 55356.

In order to assist the Inspection Committee and the ATA Central Office in organizing next year’s inspections, owners wishing to have mares or stallions inspected in 2005 must nominate them by March 1, 2005, or pay an additional fee. Please note that mares or foals nominated for a 2004 or earlier inspection and not presented must be nominated again for 2005.
The enclosed NOMINATION FORM should be completed and sent to the ATA Central Office by March 1, 2005. (No acknowledgments of receipt of these nominations will be sent.)
Members who wish to host an inspection are requested to complete the enclosed INSPECTION HOST APPLICATION also by March 1, 2005, and submit it to the Central Office to allow advance planning. Sites submitted after March 1, 2005, will be considered for 2006.
There is no cost to nominate a horse; however, any horse that is not nominated by March 1, 2005, although still eligible for inspec­tion in 2005, will be assessed a fee of $75 in addition to the published inspection fee. The only exception to this are new members joining the association after January 1, 2005, and members who purchase and transfer a horse after March 1, 2005. Applications that arrive after the deadline date stated in the Inspection Schedule also incur a $75 late fee.
The inspection host site information will be cross-tabulated by ZIP or Postal code to determine the inspection sites that are most accessible to most of the nominated horses. Please note that a lot of checking back and forth regarding dates and inspectors’ schedules is necessary and a final schedule of the 2005 inspection sites will not be available until after April 15.
After you see the list of inspection sites and dates in the May/June 2005 Trakehner Times or on the ATA web site at, please carefully observe the closing date for entries for the inspection you wish to attend and request an inspection application. If the Central Office does not receive enough entry fees accom­panied by registration certificates by the respective deadline, that site will be canceled. Furthermore, if you have not submitted your inspection application with appropriate fees and your horse’s registration certificate by that date, the office staff will not know to notify you of the cancella­tion. Please respect the deadlines for the individual sites. They are very important in the inspection planning process.
