ECAHO Breeders´ Fund
Since 2019 ECAHO has been introducing ECAHO Breeders´ Fund (EBF) which is a program to help Arabian horses breeders in ECAHO Member countries, with support and financial participation of ECAHO. Support from the EBF in form of prize money will be directed to the breeders participating at the National Championship in ECAHO Member countries, and at the ECAHO European Championship. Three first placed horses in classes at the National Championship will be awarded by 200 Euro each, and five first placed horses at the European Championship will be awarded 500 Euro each.
All Member countries are welcome to send their request for the support at their National Championship 2022. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
