Bidding Underway for Annual Stallion Auctions
Breedings to heralded sires are up for grabs in these cutting, reining and reined cow horse stallion auctions.
January 3, 2016
For pennywise mare owners, sometimes the best deals on stud fees can be found through stallion auctions.
A multitude of stallion auctions are now underway, including these from AQHA alliance partners the National Cutting Horse, National Reining Horse and National Reined Cow Horse associations.
NYCHA Online Stallion Auction
This stallion service program is the primary fundraiser for the National Youth Cutting Horse Association. Stallion owners generously donate the breeding to their stallions to support NCHA's youth program. One hundred percent of the money from the winning bids goes to the NYCHA. Funds raised from this program help support youth scholarships, youth awards and various youth activities.
For Phase 1, initial online bidding starts December 1, 2015, at half of the normal advertised breeding fee. Online bidding ends at 7 p.m. CST on February 16, 2016.
For Phase 2, “Buy Now” will continue on February 17, offering all breeding donations at 40 percent off the normal advertised breed fee until 5 p.m. CST on March 16, 2016.
NRHA Sire & Dam Program Online Auction
