Stallion and Foal Enrollments
ARBC stallion and foal enrollments begin this year in 2014. By 2018, all horses competing in the ARBC must be enrolled in the program, as that is when the ARBC program money kicks in with 70% of all stallion and foal enrollments being allocated as prize money. Currently, ARBC stallion nominations are evenly divided between purebred Arabian and Quarter Horse stallions. Stallion owners who enroll their stallions this year will have their offspring eligible for enrollment this fall. The foal owner doesnâ€™t have to enroll until the foal is actually born and there is a generous timeframe allowed throughout the weanling year. Once enrolled, a foal stays eligible, whether or not his sire continues to be involved. Foal owners pay a $250 enrollment fee per foal by September 15th of the weanling year, or $350 by December 31st; late enrollments can be made. Only enrolled foals are allowed to compete as 4- and 5-yearolds in the ARBC beginning in 2018. Stallion owners pay an initial nomination fee, then an annual enrollment fee due on February 1st of each
year. Stallion owners also assist in the promotion of the ARBC by informing and distributing information to mare owners about the ARBC, using its logo in their advertising, and mailing nomination forms to the owners of each live foal at the time they provide a breeders certificate. Stallions are promoted by the ARBC through the website, national and international advertising, press releases, brochures and materials distributed at major events, as well as in the annual ARBC Stallion Registry.
Youth Scholarship Program
As part of its ongoing commitment to youth and to its community, the ARBC has made available an annual Youth Scholarship program to assist young people in furthering their education and in fostering their future career success. The ARBC is offering $30,000 in scholarships for youth at two approved events: the High Roller Reining Classic, and the Scottsdale Arabian Horse Show in 2015. Scholarship determination is based on financial need, academic achievement, writing and communication skills, community service, ARBC involvement and references.
