International Arabian Breeders Sweepstakes Task Force

Report to the Sweepstakes Board of Trustees

November 2005


Slide2 l.jpg

The International Arabian Breeders Sweepstakes was introduced by the International Arabian Horse Association to promote the Arabian horse, elevate its stature in the horse industry, provide a financial incentive for the breeding of Arabian horses, and broaden the income base of IAHA, which is now AHA.

GOVERNANCE

The Sweepstakes program is led by a Commission established by the IAHA Board of Directors in 1985.

  • The Commission’s structure consists of:

  • Six members elected by the Board of Directors for three-year rotating terms in staggered years.

  • No more than two members elected from a Region.

  • The Treasurer completes the seven-member commission.


Slide4 l.jpg

HOW DOES SWEEPSTAKES WORK?

  • Stallion owners nominate their sires into the program.

  • Mares are bred to Nominated Sires and the resulting foals are nominated into the program as Breeding Entries.

  • Breeding Entry nominations must be made by December 31 of the year the mare is bred.

  • The resulting foal is eligible to win Sweepstakes Prize Money for life.

RESULTS OF TRUSTEE SURVEY- CONT’D


Slide18 l.jpg

Encourage the breeding and stimulate the marketability of Arabian, Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses for all levels of competition.

Increase interest and participation in the Sweepstakes Program for everyone, from those who compete at the local level to those striving to breed a national champion.

Create an all-inclusive Breeders Incentive that delivers a direct, continuing and significant return to participating breeders giving owners an incentive to nominate all horses into the Breeders Sweepstakes program.

Reward Sweepstakes participants at our highest level of competitions.

Ensure funds for future payouts and long-term validity.

Make the program easily adjustable to best serve the needs of the membership.

Utilize a standardized class list that makes it easy to identify, track and calculate payouts.

Encourage breeding in each discipline.

Encourage a limited class list providing local shows less overhead and exhibitors more time to enjoy the events.

OBJECTIVES


Revitalizing the program l.jpg

Encourage breeders to realize a return on their investment by providing a breeders incentive of 10% to the breeder/nominator and 5% to the nominated sire owner.

Adjust payouts on an annual basis so that the fund will not pay out more than it takes in, ensuring the financial viability of the fund.

Encourage breeders at all levels to nominate into the Sweepstakes program by paying out for points earned in designated Sweepstakes classes at all levels of AHA recognized competitive events (except Community Shows).

Recognize the importance of amateurs by designating new amateur classes for payout at all levels of competitions.

Create a flexible program which allows for future classes to be added in addition to larger amounts available for payouts to adjust for the demands of our membership and best serve our breeders.

Reward Sweepstakes participants at all levels of competitions.

With the flexibility of this proposal, additional classes may be added as funds are available.

Point payouts at aha recognized events l.jpg

Points can be earned at all AHA recognized competitive events (except Community Shows) that hold designated Sweepstakes classes and rides.

Approximately 55% of total collected funds will go to into this pool.

Total points earned each year (needto determine beginning and ending date to earn points) in designated Sweepstakes classes and rides will be divided into this $ pool to arrive at a $ per point figure. Eligible Sweepstakes horses earning points in designated Sweepstakes classes will be paid at the end of the designated year.

To ensure the stability of the fund and guarantee the highest dollar payout per point an annual enrollment payment of $100 is necessary to be paid ONLY the year competing for point prize money payouts.

SUMMARY COMPARISON


Breeders incentive l.jpg

Breeders Incentive: A Breeders Incentive is paid to the Breeding Entry Nominator, who is defined as the person nominating the Breeding Entry (original nominator), and to the current Nominated Sire owner.

The nominator of the Breeding Entry will be awarded payback equal to 10% of the prize money awarded through points to the Breeding Entry at National and Regional Shows and points earned and paid at designated Sweepstakes classes and rides earned at AHA recognized competitions (except Community Shows). The Nominated Sire owner will continue to receive 5% of prize money awarded to the Breeding Entry as noted above. Payback will be calculated each calendar year and will be made annually as a lump sum within 60 days of receipt of all supporting records from appropriate governing organization of the year’s last event. Current AHA Membership is required in order to receive Sweepstakes payback.

Slide32 l.jpg

As participation increases and AHA returns the interest income to the Sweepstakes fund, money will be available to add classes, increase payouts and increase fund balance and interest income.

With the exhibitor’s quest for qualification points and a standardized Sweepstakes class list, show management will adjust their show schedules to fewer classes which should encourage more participation (and points) in each class and provide more time for exhibitors to enjoy the show.
