Stallion Incentive Fund and Breeding Sale

Stallion owners are encouraged to participate in the NSBA Stallion Incentive Fund program, by donating one breeding to be sold to mare owners. The NSBA Stallion Incentive Fund (SIF) is the highest paying incentive fund for pleasure horses. 

All enrolled SIF horses are eligible to earn incentive fund points based on Dual Approved and Special Events shows, where NSBA points are earned. All NSBA points earned in Dual Approved, Special Event Open and Amateur classes will be paid out. Payout is based on the purse of sold breeding for the current year. In addition, horses enrolled in the SIF are eligible to earn Smart Points, providing the horse is transferred into the current owner's name. To learn how to enroll in Smart Points, click here:

Breeding Sale

Beginning October 1st all stallion breeding services will be offered to the highest bidder through an online auction. Breeding fees start at half the advertised price, plus $100, and will be available to the highest bidder up to the "Buy It Now" price through traditional online bidding. Horses not sold through the online auction period will then be available to "Buy It Now" at half their advertised fee, plus $100. The minimum fee for a stallion to sell, is $400 ($300 minimum breed fee plus $100 administrative fee).

The minimum fee for stallions standing private treaty, or not at all to the public, is $700 ($600 private treaty breeding fee plus $100 administrative fee). The mare owner must be a current NSBA member to purchase a stallion breeding.

The stud fees collected, are placed in a special fund to be distributed later in the program year. The stud fees, less administrative fees, are paid out each year in Dual Approved classes, through the SIF Licensing Program. Each year stallion owners will receive 10% of their enrolled offspring earnings based on NSBA points earned.

Grandfather Clause

Any stallion not enrolled and sold in the Stallion Incentive Fund program, may grandfather into the program any year following the foaling year for a fee of $800, beginning January 1. All offspring from that foaling year would then be eligible for licensing.

If the grandfather fee is paid by a person other than the stallion owner, a waiver signed by the stallion owner must be submitted to the National Snaffle Bit Association.
