Australian Reining Breeders Classic

The Australian Reining Breeders Classic (ARBC) is an industry show and breeding incentive programme.

Our 2022 Show will be held in Dalby Queensland Saturday 16th April through until Saturday 23rd April.  We look forward to welcoming you along to our 7th Annual event.

With restrictions easing and us all being more aware of social distancing we are keen to run the ARBC in 2022.  We will be featuring our 2022 ARBC Nominated Stallions for the 2022 year with all incentives for those stallions  including promotion of these great stallions on all our media platforms as well as at the ARBC Show.

The ARBC’s underlying mission is to promote the breeding of reining horses in Australia through the provision of a lucrative and prestigious event specifically designed for the derby year progeny of the best Australian and international reining stallions.

The ARBC comprises two interdependent industry components.

  • a breeding incentive programme, and
  • an annual reining and challenge show

Stallion Breeding Incentive Programme

Stallions enrolled in the ARBC programme receive.

  • Extensive stud promotion throughout the whole year via both the ARBC and Reining Australia marketing programmes
  • 5% of stallion’s progeny winnings for the OPEN DERBY & STOCKMANS CHALLENGE will pay back to the 2022 ARBC Nominated Stallion Owner
  • $1,000 bonus to the highest placed progeny of a 2022 ARBC Nominated Stallion owner in both the ARBC Open Derby or Stockmans Challenge Classic Event

Only enrolled stallions are eligible for the full benefits; financial and marketing of the ARBC programme.

To participate stallion owners pay an annual $660 enrollment for their stud’s to be eligible for that year’s ARBC event with corresponding advertising and promotions.

This annual enrollment increases by CPI each year provided the stallion remains enrolled.
