2016 RMHA Kentucky Horse Breeders Incentive Fund (KHBIF)
This Fund is financed by the sales tax on stud fees of stallions standing in Kentucky.  The KHBIF awards money to the owners of Kentucky Born and Bred horses of approved non-racing breeds, which includes the Rocky Mountain Horse breed. 
The definition of Kentucky Born and Bred horse: A horse born in the Commonwealth of Kentucky from a mare bred to a stallion standing in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.
The money awarded in the RMHA KHBIF program will be divided evenly between the “A” Sanctioned Show Program and the Competitive Trail Program (see below). This will be determined by the high point placement in those two divisions at the end of the year and the rules as established by the designated competitive trail organizations and the RMHA Sanctioned Show Program.

 Requirements for participation in either program (Show or Competitive Trail):

  • Current RMHA membership
  • Current Riders Card
  • Completion of Horse Nomination Form and payment of fee (see the form)
  • Only current (current in the year the horse is nominated) RMHA members will be awarded money, either as an owner of the horse or owner of the sire or dam.
  • Rocky Mountain Horses must be three years old; registered and certified before competing.
  • Only Kentucky Born and Bred horses qualify for Incentive Fund awards.
  • RMHA competition year is January 1st thru October 31st of the same year
