News Flash!

Dates and NEW location for the 2020 OBHA Annual Pull & Sale

The 67th OBHA Annual Pull & Sale will be held April 10 & 11, 2020 at the Ancaster Fairgrounds.

The OBHA sale is one of the longest running sales in North America and has been held in Lindsay (18 years), Toronto (17 years), Markham (22 years) and Orangeville (9 years) over its history. The change to the new venue in Ancaster provides a large arena area to work in, increased space available for vendors, an indoor wash rack and better stabling with a number of Eberstalls. We are hoping to build on the success of the 2019 sale where we saw a large increase in the quantity and quality of the horse consignments and this new location will allow us to do that.

Watch for the sale entry form to be available this summer and get your entries in early to be included in the Christmas Banner and social media advertising!

 If you’d like to volunteer with the sale or would like to enter a horse, the futurity or the pull, contact: Dave Zister, Mark Lindquist, Peter Maher, Jeff Robbins, Malcolm Yeadon, Rusty McArthur or Kent Bruce

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE OBHA FILLY & STALLION PROGRAMS

 

At the OBHA Annual Meeting held on January 19, 2019 some changes were approved to the filly programs. The changes made will provide consistency with the stallion programs moving forward.

 

The filly programs will no longer be called the “Ontario Bred & Sired” Filly Programs. Instead they will now be called the “Ontario Bred & Owned” Filly Programs.

 

With the lower number of stallions owned and standing in Ontario, we’ve been having fewer and fewer fillies nominated to the filly programs. The change to the program means that the sire of the filly no longer has to be standing in Ontario in order for the filly to be eligible to be nominated. The main rules in regard to the filly programs are:

 

-          The filly must be from a mare owned by a resident of the Province of Ontario at the time of service

-         The filly must be owned by a resident of the Province of Ontario

-         The owner must be a current member of the Ontario Belgian Horse Association

-         The filly must be nominated with the OBHA by March 1 of the current year

 

The membership also voted on a nomination fee increase for the Ontario Bred & Owned Yearling Filly Program. The nomination fee will increase to $50 per filly (plus a $25 penalty if the filly was not nominated to the filly foal program in the prior year) starting in 2019. Two Year Old Fillies can be nominated for $25 per entry (plus a $25 penalty if the filly was not nominated to the yearling filly program in the prior year). Yearling and 2 Year Old fillies need to be nominated by March 1, 2019.

 

The nomination fee for the filly foals and stallion foals will remain at $25 per entry. Yearling stallions can also be nominated for $25 per entry (plus a $25 penalty if the filly was not nominated to the stallion foal program in the prior year). The nominations to these programs continue to be due by July 1, 2019.

 

With the increase in the number of stallion foals that have been nominated over the past few show seasons, the membership voted to increase the payouts to the participants of the program from 5 placings to 10 placings beginning in 2019.

 

Best of luck to all participants in the filly & stallion programs in 2019! Any questions pertaining to the programs can be directed to Mark Lindquist (fillies) or Beth Palmer (stallions).
