Canadian Barrel Horse Incentive - offering Cash Incentives to Riders & Stallion Owners.

ABOUT THE CANADIAN BARREL HORSE INCENTIVE PROGRAM

 

As the 2020 year comes to an end, we can all agree it has been a trying one.  As the entire world was thrown into turmoil, dealing with a pandemic no one can predict the end of.  

 

The barrel races were few and far between, with nothing being run until the summer months.  As a result, the CBHI only had 6 of the 15 approved co-sanctioned races take place. The upside is there was a big increase in entries at these events,  and we saw a lot of names on the entries that were new, due to there being no rodeos.

 

The CBHI Super Stakes Stallion Auction was another successful one, bringing in $152,000 for the payout in 2024.  The waiting list started to move forward this year, adding 1 new stallion into the auction.  

  

The CBHI Futurity/Derby held at Ponoka over the thanksgiving weekend saw 169 entries in the futurity with 98 being Super Stakes Certificate Holders.  The Derby saw 183 entries, with 91 being Super Stakes certificate Holders.  The CBHI paid out $358,376.00 at our big event.

Considering the downturn of the economy, our numbers were up 35% across the board, proving we have a superior program that our riders and stallion owners can stand behind and support.

 

Winner of the SS Futurity $37,080.00 was Mr Golden Jess, owned & ridden by Shelby Robbins and sired by Crimson Jess, stallion was owned by Sandy Ridge back at nomination time receiving $12,360.00

Winner of the SS Derby $9,270.00  was SR Boots On Fire, owned & ridden by Lynette Brodoway and sired by Root Beers Boots, owned by Sandy Ridge.

 

In total, The CBHI paid out $28,000.00 in 2020 Incentive money to offspring of our nominated stallions, and $7,140.00 paid out to stallion owners. Top stallion for 2020 was Ninety Nine Goldmine, with 25 placings and a payout of $815.00.

 

Because we only had 6 out of 15 events run this year, the stallion incentive money followed what was paid out.  For the next year, we will add in money not paid in 2020 so there will be more chances to win incentive money and stallion kick backs.

 

Our AGM is slated for January 24, 2021, at the Calnash Ag Event Center, PONOKA.   Please RSVP by January 8, 2021.  Lunch is provided, and any AGM topic or nominations for directors must be received by the office before December 24th, 2020.. 

Directors meeting to follow lunch.

 

Thank-you for supporting and standing behind the #1 growing Barrel Horse Incentive in Canada. Remember to get your 2021 nominations into the office by Dec 1, 2020

 

Happy Trails,

 

Laurie Bresee - CBHI President 

 

As the 2019 year comes to an end, we can all agree it has been a trying one.  As the entire western provinces saw weather that was unusual and out of the ordinary, Canada is under a Liberal minority government, and our Oil and Gas sectors are still struggling to survive.

 

Also, this year has proven that all of those barrel horses out there that we have all worked hard to get to where they are now know what it is like to work and/or run in mud up to their knees.

 

The CBHI Super Stakes Stallion Auction was another successful one, bringing in $162,000 for the payout in 2023.  The waiting list is getting closer to starting to fill in spots within the 125 stallions in the Super Stakes, as we saw 127 in the Auction in 2019. 

 

As a board, we do realize it is frustrating to be on the waiting list, but please be patient, your time will come.

 

We have listened to our stallion owners, and starting in the 2020 auction, minimum starting bid will be $400, or 1/2 of your breeding fee and charges, whichever is greater.

 

The CBHI Futurity/Derby held at Ponoka over the thanksgiving weekend saw 135 entries in the futurity with 86 being Super Stakes Certificate Holders.  The Derby saw 130 entries, with 70 being Super Stakes certificate Holders.  The CBHI paid out $148,384 at our big event, not including the SS winning cheques.  Considering the downturn of the economy, our numbers held strong matching 2018’s, proving we have a superior program that our riders and stallion owners can stand behind and support.

 

Winners of the futurity $38,400.00  SS Payout was DK Shawne’s Dixie, owned by Traci Kennedy and sired by Famous Playboy, owned by Devon and Kim Gerwatoski. 

 

Winners of the Derby $9,600.00 SS Payout was Hez My Magic Man, owned by Carly Christianson and Sired by Jess Magic, owned by Ralph Danard and Ed Borgstrom.

 

In total, The CBHI paid out $53,100.00 in  2019 Incentive money to offspring of our nominated stallions, and $17,700 paid out to stallion owners.  Top stallion for 2019 was Ninety Nine Goldmine, with 26 placings and a payout of $1349.66.

 

Our AGM is slated for January 26, 2020, at the Executive Royal Hotel, 8450 Sparrow Drive, Leduc, Alberta.  Please RSVP by January 10, 2020.  Lunch is provided, and any AGM topic or nominations for directors must be received by the office before December 26th, 2019. 

Directors meeting to follow lunch.

The Canadian Barrel Horse Incentive Mandate reads, “a non-profit organization designed to promote barrel racing & barrel racing breeders in Canada”


We have succeeded.

In 2009 the sale average on 24 horses sold was $1654.17
and in 2016 the sale average on 25 horses sold was $4032
In 2013 the first Super Stakes cheques were handed out and this year we saw the Super Stakes Futurity horses double in entries and there was a 20 head increase in Derby horses.
 
The weather did not hold anyone back. We are the fall event not to miss for competitors, breeders and spectators alike.

We moved to Ponoka in 2012 and it has proven to be an excellent venue that has accommodated the rapid growth of the program over the past four years.

We would like to thank all the people who make this event run so smoothly.

The Annual General Meeting is scheduled for January 29, 2017, 10:00 am at the Calnash Center, Ponoka and we would like to remind you that director nominations are due 30 days prior to the Annual general Meeting. Please email the office to confirm attendance for lunch. Contact the office for forms and with any questions. Also don’t forget to get your stallion nominations in by December 1.

Please note that the office address has changed to:
Canadian Barrel Horse Incentive

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season.
Sincerely,

October 28, 2015

December 1st is fast approaching and with that comes the end of another very successful year for CBHI. The Super Stakes auction this spring generated a record pot for the 2019 Super Stakes Futurity and Derby.  The majority of the sanctioned events also experienced a lot of entries from CBHI horses.  We sent out a survey earlier in the summer and listened to the stallion owners concerns and in return made a change limiting the number of stallions to the Super Stakes program.  Stallion owners will see their Super Stakes foals become a premium product if there is a limited amount of them available. I see this also bringing up the average in the annual Super Stakes auction as well.

Thanksgiving weekend in Ponoka was a realization that this program is headed in the right direction at an amazing pace. We had the largest amount of entries of any futurity/derby in Canada this year and our open event was second only to the ABRA finals. The Super Stakes entries accounted for 38% of the futurity and 31% of derby entries. We were lucky enough to have our futurity sanctioned by the Future Fortunes program and they have already approved it again in 2016. We had a lot of first time stallions in the winner’s circle in both the Super Stakes futurity and derby and they were represented by 3 different provinces.  We also had a derby horse that had previously won the Super Stakes futurity and ended up placing both derby years. This is a testament to the prosperity of owing a Super Stakes horse.

Year-end stallion placings have been determined and Frenchs Hulas Guy was the stallion which the garnered the most placings.

Our AGM is scheduled for January 23rd at 10:00am in Ponoka at the PAEC.  Director nominations and agenda items must be received in the office by December 25th and you must RVSP by January 10th to ensure we have enough food.

Sincerely,

Dawn Gertner

CBHI President
