AQHA World Champion Indian Artifacts (1995 – 2014)

Sire of AQHA, APHA, PtHA, ApHC, NSBA World/National & Reserve World/National Champions, USDF and USEF Year End High Point Champion and Reserve Champions, and, AWR Inspection Champions

The foundation of the DeGraff Stables breeding program and one of the ONLY breeding stallions that was an AQHA World Champion and an AWR Site Inspection Champion with a full breeding license. Indian Artifacts had a full and exciting show career. He competed in AQHA and NSBA in both Open and Non-Pro/Amateur events at 2, 3, 4 & 5 years old. An AQHA World Champion, a 2X All-American Quarter Horse Congress Reserve Champion with an AQHA Superior in Hunter Under Saddle and Championships at many major futurity programs, we were thrilled with his many successes.

Additionally offered for inspection, at 7 years of age, to the American Warmblood Registry (AWR), Indian Artifacts earned a First-Premium Rating, and, as the highest scoring horse; earned the Site

Inspection Championship. In successive years he earned his full breeding license through the get of his foals as a result of their inspection scores. Both the dam and the foal had to be submitted for inspection. The foals of Indian Artifacts ‘outscored’ their dams. By foals outscoring their dams proved that the stallion could make a difference, therefore, improve the breed, thus earning the Breeding License.

Adding to his own performance achievements, Indian Artifacts has sired World or National Champions and World or National Reserve Champions in Quarter Horse, Paint, Pinto, Appaloosa and NSBA Associations. In AQHA, NSBA, USDF and USHJA Associations, he has sired performers that earned Year End High Point or Reserve High Point Championships He has foals that were ranked nationally in Hunter Breeding competitions, including the International Hunter Futurity and USDF in-hand venues in both the U.S. and Canada. American Warmblood Registry foals have earned Site Inspection Championships. Many have gone on to have excellent sport horse careers over fence.

His 17+ hand stature with substantive bone, depth, balance and overall athleticism along with good character has been passed on and is evident in each foal. A rapidly rising broodmare sire, the legacy of Indian Artifacts lives on in his sons and the daughters; we are thrilled as they perform and produce.
