Rules and Regulations

Eligibility  |  Futurity  |  Auction  |  Important Dates

The Region 17 Select Stallion Auction Futurity Program shall be divided into 2 parts:
  1.  Region 17 Select Stallion Halter Futurity
  2.  Region 17 Select Stallion Performance Futurity

Eligibility

Only Registered Purebred or Partbred Arabian offspring of the stallions nominated to the Region 17 Select Stallion Auction are eligible if all requirements are met.

Stallion Requirements

1.  The Stallion Owner will donate one (1) breeding for each stallion to the Region 17 Select Stallion Service Auction.  The Minimum Bid accepted by the Auction for the breeding will be 25% or 50% of the posted stud fee as specified by the Stallion Owner.  The Stallion Owner may reduce the Minimum Bid at any time to encourage the purchase of the donated breeding.
2.  The Stallion Owner is required to complete the Stallion Nomination Form by the advertised deadline and also to provide 3 or more professional quality pictures, a copy of the current breeding contract and, if possible, a promotional video.
3.  The Stallion Owner will be given one (1) Futurity Entry for every breeding they donate to their stallion when the breeding is sold.  This means the stallion owner can enter a foal into the futurity that must be the resulting offspring of the same stallion nominated to the auction and must result from the same breeding year the auction breeding was intended for.  The Mare Nomination Form must be completed and the fee paid as below.
4.  Stallion services not sold at the Auction will be available for purchase until April 1st of the year following the auction. 
5.   If a stallion service has not sold, the Stallion Owner will not receive a Futurity Entry. If the Stallion Owner wishes to buy back the breeding for the Minimum Bid at any time before April 1st, the Stallion Owner will be able to enter 2 offspring in the Futurity. The Stallion Owner will be notified in January and again in March if their donated breeding has not sold.
6.  If the stallion is sold or leased prior to the conclusion of the prescribed breeding season, the Stallion Owner will be responsible to the purchaser to insure that the breeding purchased through the Region 17 Select Stallion Service Auction will be honoured by the new owner or lessee.
7.  If the stallion dies or is severely injured or is otherwise declared unfit for service, the breeding payment will be refunded to the purchaser without interest, unless there is frozen semen available.

The current Stallion Nomination Form is made available on the Home page.

Mare Requirements

1.  Mare Owners are required to complete the Mare Nomination Form by the advertised deadline of the year bred and to submit with the $100 CDN Mare Nomination Fee.
2.  Mares will be nominated for one (1) breeding year. 
3.  Only 1 Mare Nomination for each auction breeding may be submitted.  Embryo Transfer (ET) Mare Nominations are required to designate the recipient mare by the advertised deadline of the breeding year.
4.  The Mare Owner is responsible for compliance with the requirements as set forth in the breeding contract including, but not limited to health papers, vaccinations, normal mare care fees, artificial insemination fees, collection and shipping charges.

The current Mare Nomination Form is made available on the Home page.

Breedings

1.  Foals that result from breedings bought in the Auction will be eligible to come back as yearlings to compete in halter and as 4 year olds to compete in one of 8 performance classes (Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, Country English Pleasure, and Sport Horse under Saddle).
2.  The breeding must be used in the breeding season immediately following the Auction and may not be carried over to another year.
3.  In the event that the mare reabsorbs or aborts, or the foal dies, etc., any resulting foal from a rebreeding in another year will not be eligible for the futurity and the Mare Nomination fee will not be refunded.
