RPSI is once again sponsoring a 30-day stallion test, to be held at Silver Creek Farm in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, February 6th - March 7th, 2009. 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.
