For most people, Spring means warmer weather, wildflowers, and welcomed rainfall. However, cutting horse owners nationwide know it’s a chance to concoct the perfect recipe for the next great cutting champion. It’s breeding season, and the National Youth Cutting Horse Association has a lineup of stallions available to any mare owner looking to breed their horse this year.
The 2012 NYCHA Stallion Service Program features more than 100 cutting stallions up for grabs to the highest bidder. It works much like eBay – just go to the website (www.nychastallionauction.com), find the stud you’d like to breed your mare to, and click “bid now!” to place your bid. The bids increase in $100 increments, and each breeding begins at half the advertised breeding fee.
The NYCHA is still taking donations from stallion owners who would like to donate a breeding to their stud. 100 percent of proceeds benefit the youth. Initial bidding (phase one of two) ends Jan. 17. After that time, any stallions not sold or donations received after Jan. 17 will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis at 60 percent of the advertised breeding fee until June 1.
The online stallion auction has a collection of stallions that are compatible with almost any mare at a price owners will be pleased with, and more stallions are added daily. Four past NCHA Futurity champions, two past World Champions, and several past finalists in limited age events and top weekend shows are just a few of the stallion profiles the NYCHA has available.
The NYCHA is a self-supporting branch of the 20,000-member strong National Cutting Horse Association. The Stallion Service Program is the NYCHA’s most revenue-generating fundraiser, and provides $80,000 to $125,000 for youth scholarships and programs annually.
The National Cutting Horse Association has more than 20,000 members from a wide range of backgrounds. Each year more than 2,200 NCHA-approved events are held throughout North America, with more than $43 million in prize money awarded.
