The Rocky Mountain Breeders Association, a non-profit organization in existence since 2001, is an active group of individuals in the Appaloosa, Paint and Quarter Horse breeds. The prime objective of the Association is to develop, promote and market quality performance and stock horses. Throughout the year, RMBA hosts seminars, clinics, stallion service auction, Futurity, horse shows, Ranch Horse competitions and an annual Breeders Sale, our largest event. We have several exciting events lined up for 2018 such as reining clinics, cow working clinics, horsemanship clinics and a possible trail clinic with a trail competition to follow, and of course our Ranch Horse Competitions. These events help to improve the health and welfare of horses and to educate our members and the public.
Most of our members are from Montana, but there are no residency limitations or requirements. We currently have approximately 75 members. Not all members own their own stallions, choosing instead to breed their quality mares to outside stallions. An increasing number of members are joining primarily to support the ranch horse competitions, although they are not breeders, so that we may continue to offer them and expand our offerings. The annual membership dues for a family/ranch for 2018 are $50, renewable each January. We also offer an Individual Youth Membership for $20. The membership includes a subscription to The Wrangler, which publishes our monthly newsletter. And don’t forget to utilize all the benefits our website has to offer members, including listing your website links, your stallions on Stallion Alley, and your ranch on the Breeders Profiles, all free of charge. We also have Classifieds that is free of charge to all current members. Contact Kristy for more information on putting your classifieds on the website.
As an additional way to promote your stallions and bring in additional monies for events and advertising to the association, we have an on-line Stallion Service Auction. Stallion participation is completely voluntary. Please see the Stallion Service Auction page under the events tab for more information.
We hope that you will find RMBA to be a useful asset in your ranch programs, both as a marketing tool, and also as a supportive network of like-minded horsemen and a great place to come and participate in events with your horses.
