Benefits and Programs
(Existing and proposed
benefits of membership)
The Spanish Arabian Horse Society
is dedicated to the promotion and exploration of this unique and magnificent
Some of the many benefits of
membership in the Spanish Arabian Breeders Organization include:
- The website includes sections for news, Spanish Arabian history, advertising
opportunities, and more.
STALLION SHOWCASE – individual Straight Spanish and Spanish Bred stallion
presentations provide exceptional exposure to an international audience
each year at numerous high profile shows.
HANDBOOKS OF STRAIGHT SPANISH HORSES – provide a pictorial reference guide
and a unique and effective marketing tool for members to promote their
horses on a long-term and worldwide basis.
ARABIAN BROCHURE – designed to be personalized with each member’s farm
and contact information. Multiple copies available to all members,
further promoting the Spanish Arabian horse to the Arabian community and
general equine industry.
& INTERNATIONAL EXPOSURE – through the Spanish Showcases & Futurities,
as well as promotional exhibit space at high profile shows such as the
Arabian US Nationals, the Sport Horse Nationals and the Scottsdale Arabian
OWNER PARTICIPATION PROGRAM – Members may include their straight Spanish
(or Spanish related – 25% or more) stallions in this program, and agree
to pay ½ of the Spanish futurity nomination fee for any foals out
of purebred Arabian mares bred to their stallions. Special promotion given
to participating stallions through an annual Stallion Guide and other publications.
This would allow those who are really into showing to support the
Futurity but those whose showing is not a priority would not feel obligated.
RECOGNITIONS – through sponsoring endurance races, team penning,
trail ridding, etc. We need to include everyone, not just those who show
in the ring but also those out there in the trenches working their horses
shoulder to shoulder with other breeds.
member benefits could provide the opportunity for exceptional exposure
and publicity, as well as outstanding financial incentives.
REBATES – Every current member is eligible to earn free annual dues through
the popular “Sponsor A New Member” program. New members may join
for 1/3 off the regular dues and those sponsoring members also receive
an equal cash rebate. This is something we can look at down the road.
– There is currently a Spanish Futurity run by the Northern California
Spanish Breeders Association and held each year in conjunction with the
Northern Cal. Egyptian breeders show. (They just changed the amount
of Spanish blood in order to be eligible.)
CO-OP ADVERTISING – Group
together to advertise in National publications where, by guaranteeing a
number of pages, we can get a reduced rate. This would make the Spanish
editions substantial and obtainable for many Spanish breeders.
MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY – print
version updated annually, facilitating contact between members worldwide.
Membership information available online anytime.
SOCIALS – at top U.S. Arabian
shows and other significant functions, this allows members to meet other
members, friends and supporters of the Society.
COMMITTEE INVOLVEMENT – gives
members the chance to help shape the future of the Spanish Arabian by personally
working on projects of interest to them.
RESEARCH & EDUCATIONAL
OF STRAIGHT SPANISH HORSES & ANNUAL SUPPLEMENTS - essential for the
survival of the Spanish Arabian here in the US.
RESEARCH SERVICES - available for researching Spanish Arabian bloodlines.
AND PRESENTATIONS – This is also something to think about for the future.
It would help to attract supporters & educate the entire industry on
the importance of the Spanish Arabian bloodline group. It would also
educate members on topics of general equine management & business practices.
Seminars and presentations would be complimentary for members, and a small
fee would be charged for non-members.
OTHER MEMBER SERVICES
THE NEWSLETTER – The Society’s
quarterly newsletter keeps members informed about current activities and
programs. Current news is also available online anytime.
PUBLICATIONS AND REFERENCE MATERIALS - available through the Society
for open houses, seminars, and regional activities, further promoting the
