RPSI is once again sponsoring a 30-day stallion test, to be held at Silver Creek Farm in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, November 10th through December 9th, 2008. Stallions of all sporthorse breeds, Arabian or Thoroughbred, between the ages of 3 and 6, who are started under saddle (walk, trot, canter) with a reasonable level of fitness are welcome to attend. The final testing will be held on the last two days.
The 30-day test was developed in Germany to provide stallion owners with a safe, cost-effective way to fulfill their stallion's licensing requirements at an earlier age through a combination of standardized, on-site testing and performance results. Please contact Barbara Sikkink or Summer Stoffel at Silver Creek Sporthorses, or email the RPSI at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
