Canadian Barrel Horse Incentive

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

Parkland County, Alberta

Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday season.

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.
