Twice a year members of the NZSBA Executive and HRNZ Board meet to discuss breeding issues. Below is a brief overview of key items discussed.
NZSBA proposed the introductions of Trotting Stallion and Trotting Broodmare Awards. Recommendation to be tabled at next HRNZ Board meeting
Discussed re-introducing 4YO Awards – no consensus with views both ways
Mares Credit scheme was tabled for discussion. It was widely accepted such a scheme would show support to breeders but there were questions about its value, especially for five-win and over mares, most of which would be bred. There is currently no funding available for such a scheme at this time.
