The American Saddlebred Horse and Breeders Association (ASHBA) is proud to present the $100,000 Breeders Challenge in conjunction with the United Breeders Collation. This year’s program will be comprised of three events at the World’s Championship Horse Show: the $100,000 Breeders Challenge class, the online stallion service auction, and the Breeders Challenge Auction Party.

$100,000 Four-Year-Old Breeders Challenge Stake Deadline 

The deadline to submit a transfer of ownership and/or a horse voucher assignment form is Friday, August 12, 2022.  A transfer form, fees and current registration papers or a horse voucher assignment form must be submitted on or before this deadline.  Transfers of ownership received after August 12 and prior to August 22 will be subject to a $100 rush fee.

The only horses eligible for this class are those with a “voucher” issued by the ASHBA.  See below for details.

1. Owners of a stallion whose service was donated and purchased for at least $750 at the 2021 Breeders Challenge Stallion Auction.

2. Buyers of a stallion service through the 2021 Breeders Challenge Stallion Auction.

3.  Owner of a voucher who sells an age-appropriate horse and assigns the voucher to go with the horse.  The voucher can only be used on that purchased horse in the 2022 Four-Year-Old Breeders Challenge Stake class.  A link to the horse voucher assignment form can be found here.

4.  A transfer of ownership of an age-appropriate horse into the name or joint ownership of a person holding a voucher as mentioned above.
