Foal Incentive Funds and Breeders Trust Programs

INDIAN ARTIFACTS, HBF IRON MAN, DGS INDYGO and DGS VESTASTIC participate in the several breed's richest breeding incentive programs.  DeGraff Stables pays annually to fully nominate these stallions into their respective incentive programs to benefit mare and foal owners of show horses.  Foals upon registration must enter their foal into the program(s) of choice, according to the foal's eligibility, by the owner to fully take advantage of the Incentives.  Following are the program(s) that your foal may be eligibile for:

APHA - American Paint Horse Breeders Trust Program:
Established in 1994, the APHA Breeders’ Trust program was created to help offset the cost of showing and to add value to American Paint Horses. It’s a program that pays cash dividends for points earned by nominated horses at APHA-approved events.  While color can be a major asset, a lack of color does not limit your opportunity for success within APHA, see details for the Solid Paint-Bred program. Program details and nomination forms:

AQHA - American Quarter Horse Incentive Fund:
The Incentive Fund is a multimillion-dollar program involving stallion and foal nominations with pay backs to the stallion nominators, foal nominators and owners of the competing horses. The program is owned, managed and operated by AQHA and utilizes the most familiar and proven concept in the American Quarter Horse Show industry, points won at AQHA shows. Each point earned at an AQHA-approved show in the open and/or amateur division by an Incentive Fund nominated horse will be worth a specific amount. The exact amount will depend on total money in the Fund for that show year and the total number of points earned in that year by Incentive Fund nominated horses.  Program details and nomination forms:

KPHIFP - Kentucky Paint Horse Incentive Fund Program:
The Kentucky Paint Horse Club (KPHC) is the recognized state affiliate of the APHA and encompasses show and performance horses, breeders, professional horsemen and trainers, amateurs and youths and recreational riding.  The KPHIF utilizes a system in which incentives are based on performance horses on points earned through APHA shows, PAC and other KPHC recognized activities. All KPHIF eligible offspring must be nominated for, and officially enrolled in, the APHA Breeders Trust and meet the requirements of the KPHIF, among which are: breeding stallions must stand the entire season in Kentucky and the mare must foal in Kentucky.  Program details:
