The only exclusive event stallion auction in the world is taking place right now at the Area II website. It's an online auction of donated eventing stallion services to benefit the Area II Young Riders program. The auction has garnered the donated services of such outstanding stallions as Consul (pictured left), sire of Rolex '08 third-placed horse Critical Decision; Salute The Truth, an Advanced Level Thoroughbred stallion standing in Maryland and noted sire of event horses; and a son of the great Cicera's Icewater, Cappucino Ice, whose fee comes with a free week of board for the mare. And many more stallions are listed, including ponies, warmbloods, and Thoroughbreds.
This is a breeder's chance to get a great bargain on a desirable stud fee, and contribute to Young Riders at the same time. Last year bids came in from around the world for the stallions! The auction is open to anyone to bid online after a quick registration process; bids are open now and will close on or about the first week in March, 2009. For further details, please see: www.usea2.net/forum (website for the auction). All bids start at half the advertised fee.

The Holekamp/Turner Grant was founded in 2015 by Timothy and Cheryl Holekamp of New Spring Farm and Christine and T.J. Turner of Indian Creek Farm. This grant gives a USEA Young Event Horse (YEH) Championship competitor the opportunity to represent the United States at the FEI Eventing World Breeding Championships in the 7-year-old Championship (a CCIYH3*-L) at Mondial du Lion in Le Lion d’Angers, France. The intention of the grant is to further develop an upward pathway for U.S. team horses in the sport of eventing. Grant recipients who are North American bred will be awarded the full cash grant of $17,500. If the winner is an imported horse, he will be awarded $8,000.
