Welcome to The Breeders Elite Incentive!

This Incentive is offering an elite opportunity to Canadian Barrel Horse Breeders.  It has helped boost our
industry to a prestigious level  by increasing our offspring earnings and recognizing Canada’s
barrel horse breeders.

Canada is the home of hundreds of amazing breeding programs and we do not want anyone to
miss out on the quality we have growing in our pastures. 2021 was the 1st year for The Breeders Elite
Incentive and what a successful breakout year it was!  This spectacular Breeders Incentive showcased
Canadian Bred horses that had the opportunity to run for huge payouts. We would like to take a moment to
thank you, our breeders, for believing in the vision of the BEI and for jumping on board with us. 

The Incentive

The Breeder’s Elite Incentive (BEI) accommodates for many different avenues of benefits for all who wish to be involved. This Incentive nominates the BREEDER on registration papers so that ALL their offspring are eligible for our annual Sweepstakes with no foal nomination fees. A breeder is not required to own a stallion.  This incentive allows for ANY horse bred by a nominated breeder OR sired by a nominated stallion to be eligible to compete in the Futurity and Derby Sweepstakes and the BEI Open. 

To be eligible to nominate into this incentive you must be a ‘breeder’ on registration papers. This will entitle ALL past/present/future breeders offspring eligibility to compete at the yearly race for HUGE payouts. 

If a breeder wishes to nominate more than one stallion there is a fee required per additional stallion.  A farm must be the owner of all their nominated stallions. The incentive to nominate all your farm stallions is for off farm sweepstakes eligibility. Mare owners who do not pay in as a breeder, and wish to breed their mares for eligible offspring, must breed to a nominated stallion.
