THE ARABIAN HORSE BREEDERS ALLIANCE OF AUSTRALASIA
The Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance of Australasia Inc. is an organisation formulated with the promotion of the Purebred Arabian Horse as its core objective. Within this framework of promotion AHBAA aims to reach a broader community and help build Interest in the Arabian Breed.
As breeders of Arabian Horses we have a responsibility for the future welfare of our breed as well as having a viable benefit in assisting in the building of a sustainable growth market for our stock. The future of the Arabian horse is in the hands of the breeder and as a community of Arabian horse enthusiasts, now is the time to be proactive and have an exciting & rewarding contribution to the future growth, existence and welfare of the breed.
Arabian Horse Breeders Alliance of Australasia Inc wishes to work in synergy with societies, associations, groups and or bodies within the Australasian region as well as internationally, that share similar interests aims & objectives. In no way is it the intention and or direction for AHBAA to diminish or take the place of any of these societies, associations, groups & or body's.
THE AUSTRALASIAN BREEDERS CUP
Selection of Judges – each director selects three judges, one from Europe, USA and Australia. The acting directors then vote, via email which is then counted. Hopefully the successfully voted for judges are then available to attend. We select judges that are high profile and successful exhibitors and/or breeders within the Arabian horse industry throughout the world
Rules – Due to limited stable allocation, the number of entries we accept are very limited and entries are taken online and are accepted on a ‘first come first served’ basis.
One Horse per entity - (owner/partnership) is allowed to enter per class to offer smaller breeding farms the opportunity to win the Breeders Cup. Should we not receive our nominated quota of entries, exhibitors will be invited to enter a second horse.
Scoring – as the judges score cards are handed in to the stewards, each score card is calculated, checked and signed by three scorers before being accepted. This is the final result and no final stand up/pose is necessary. This eliminates pressure on handlers and horses to impress.
JUDGES ANNOUNCED FOR 2018
Australia - Mark Lilley
USA - Howie & Joanna Kale
Europe - Michael Van den Elsken
