Reining Alberta Performance Program By Geri Greenall TO PROMOTE, DEVELOP AND ENHANCE THE SPORT OF REINING IN ALBERTA
eining Alberta is excited to announce that it is implementing an enhanced RA Performance Program starting in 2015. The enhanced program is designed to significantly increase purses and participation for aged events at the Reining Alberta Classic Shows. The new RA Performance Program will still include the current Sire Incentive program (significantly reduced enrolment rates for eligible offspring and Sire Incentive payouts) designed to help promote local studs to the market. BUT in addition, in 2015, ANY weanling, yearling, two-yearold, three-year-old and/or four-yearold will be eligible for nomination. Stallion enrolment will be due by April 30, 2015. Yearlings from enrolled stallions in 2015 will be eligible for enrolment in the enhanced program at existing rates ($50/yearling). All offspring NOMINATIONS will be due by December 31, 2015. Please note that the Program will take a year to
implement; thus, the 4 year-old Maturities (Open and NP) at the Spring Classic and 3-year-old Futurities (Open and NP) at the Fall Classic will be open to only those foals born in 2011 and 2012 that are sired by NOMINATED Stallions. The Performance Program classes (and increased purses) will begin in 2016. Reining Alberta estimates that the enhanced program will take the current added monies of $8,000$10,000 per year (3-year-old futurity and 4-year-old maturity) to over $40,000! Complete details (nomination schedules, forms, etc.) will be available on the Reining Alberta website, under RA Performance Proposal (formally Sire Incentive). If anyone has any questions on the program, please do not hesitate to contact Kathie at staffsecretary@ reiningalberta.net.
