A total of C$1 million will be distributed to Ontario breeders by 2022, as a result of Ontario Racing’s Purebred Improvement Program (TIP) Commission improvements in the Mare Recruitment and Purchase Program for the season sales 2021-2022.
Focusing on the Mare Purchase Program (MPP), the TIP Commission increased the maximum credit limit to C$75,000 from AU$50,000, reduced the minimum purchase price from US$15,000 to US$10,000, and eliminated limit purchase to a maximum of $100,000.
We’ve made changes to the Mare Program to ease restrictions, but never in our wildest dreams did we think all funding would run out,” said David Anderson , said Breeder on the Ontario Racing Commission and TIP Committee member. As a result, we are the leading jurisdiction worldwide for the percentage increase of Ontario crossbred ponies. ”
The MPP has 42 mares from 31 breeders enrolled in the program, 32 of which will be bred into an Ontario-based stallion. The Mare Recruitment Program has 49 mares registered from 33 mares owners/buyers and 19 will be bred into a stallion in Ontario.
“David and the TIP Committee did a great job opening it up,” said Arika Everatt-Meeuse, who received $64,000 through the MPP. “It can now be accessed by more people and really allows people to reach out and buy a better mare.
She added, “I wouldn’t go shopping without it. It wouldn’t fit my budget. School fees and everything is going up. But with the help of the program, I was able to make it work. ”
