It is with great disappointment that I am announcing the MCHA will not be taking 2015 enrollments for the Breeders Incentive Program. Unfortunately, interest in the program has declined to the point that it won't have any value by 2019. There is a large amount of money to be paid out in 2016-2018, so the futurity classes will still be held in the next three years. If, at that time, there appears to be a renewed interest, enrollments could be taken again in 2018. I would like to thank all the stallion and mare owners that faithfully supported the program for many years.
