The Breeding Sire of the Year award was established by the MFTHBA Membership Committee to recognize stallions providing significant impact to the continuation of the breed. In addition, the award was designed to encourage foal registration in a timely manner, something that helps the MFTHBA in its task to preserve the registry of the breed.
The criteria for the award are simple:
- All stallions who submit an on-time stallion breeding report are eligible.
- The 2016 top 5 represent the stallions with the most foals born in 2016 and registered with the MFTHBA by December 31, 2016.
