* The breeder of
a horse is the owner of the dam at the time of service, except
when a mare is held under lease at time of breeding and written
notification of such lease signed by the lessee and lessor is
on file with AQHA, in which event the registration certificate
shall show the lessee as the breeder. When a frozen embryo permit
is used to register a foal, the original purchaser of the frozen
embryo permit shall be listed as the breeder.
**Raw data for these
reports were purchased from AQHA on 6/22/2014. Totals are for
each AQHA account. Every attempt has been made to accurately
combine the offspring AQHA halter & performance points for the
divisions of Open, Amateur & Youth for each breeder. The reader,
however, should not assume that the information is official,
final, or error free.
I have been looking
at horse related statistical information almost every day since
1997. I have had the opportunity to reviewed and analyzed hundreds
of sire and dam records. I currently spend most of my time updating
my website, Quarter Horse Directory, www.qhd.com with statistical
information and providing written reports including magic cross
and nicking reports for sire and dam owners who feel such information
is a valuable asset to their breeding program.
Many horse people
believed that if they have a "nice" mare they can breed her
to most any stallion in her specialty area and get "a winner."
Breeding to the latest World Champion or Congress Champion stallion
is very popular. It is assumed to be a sure way to produce the
next big "winner".
Is that the best
thing to do with your time & money if you wish to produce a
quality show horse? Can statistics information help increase
the odds of producing offspring that can win at the AQHA level?
I hope the above article will help to answer these two questions.
