NZTBA Waikato Stallion Parade this weekend

The annual NZTBA Waikato Branch Stallion Parade is always eagerly awaited by studs, broodmare owners and other horse lovers as a fine opportunity to inspect around 50 stallions in two days and a last chance to socialise before the breeding season begins in earnest on 1 September. Studmasters appreciate being able to promote their horses "in the flesh" to a large number of broodmare owners, many of whom will wait until the parade to confirm their mating plans.
This year's Waikato Stallion Parade will be held this coming weekend, Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 August with the Breeder of the Month dinner scheduled for Saturday evening in Matamata.
