NRHA GERMANY STALLION SERVICE PROGRAM (SSP)
Amorbach. The NRHA Germany Stallion Service Program (SSP) was changed in important parts at the 2016 annual general meeting by decision of the members. Below is a brief summary of the most important changes and nomination periods for stallion and horses / foals.
The nomination form NRHA SSP 2018 is currently available at www.nrha.de/ssp-hengste. From now on, the stallions can be paid into the new SSP (foals from the year 2019). The stallions must be nominated and paid in by 31st of July 2019 at the latest.
• So that the offspring are eligible to compete at the Futurity or the Breeders Derby, NOT the STALLIONS, but the FOAL / HORSES must be nominated!
• The nomination fee of horses / foals as descendants of stallions that are nominated is lower than the nomination fee of offspring of non-nominated stallions.
• For offspring of non-nominated stallions born in 2018 or earlier, a transitional regime applies. These horses can compete for a subsequent nomination fee of € 1,000 per start, in addition to the applicable entry fees, on the 3-year, 4-year Breeders Futurity or Breeders Derby.
• The nominator of a stallion receives a five percent share of the prize money which the offspring of the stallion will win at the Breeders Futurity and Breeders Derby (Stallion Incentive).
• The nominator of a stallion receives the nomination of a weanling (in the year of birth) from his breeding free of charge
• The nominator of the foal / horse receives a five percent share of the prize money that the horse wins at the Breeders Futurity and the Breeders Derby (Foal Incentive).
• The nominator of the stallion / foal does not have to be a member of the NRHA Germany, but a membership is recommended
