MEMBER REPORT FROM CHILE (Includes Peru)

REPORT MADE AT 2011 WAHO CONFERENCE:

Mr. Fernando Saenz, Chile: My name is Fernando Saenz, and together with my colleague Mr. Rodolfo Pinilla who is in charge of our Registry, we come in representation of Chile and Peru. We thank first His Highness Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani and the authorities of the Qatar Racing and Equestrian Club for having us here in their beautiful country, together with WAHO's President Dr. Hans Nagel.

The population of Arabian horses in my country is approximately 2,800 horses. In 2010 we registered 200 foals, 10% of them from Peru, and imported 25 horses. This year we registered so far 182 foals, again with 10% from Peru, and we exported 5 horses. We hold 2 annual shows with approximately 70 to 80 horses participating at each. Endurance riding is popular, a ride is held every 2 months, this sport is growing fast with the participation of 100-150 horses. We are now preparing ourselves to come to compete in Dubai this December.

We do allow artificial insemination and embryo transfer, and all foals are parent verified by DNA. Our studbook is in printing and includes from 2007 to 2010. And last, but not least, I must do a heartily remembrance of an American Arabian horse breeder that made it possible for my country to enter to the WAHO family, way back in 1982, at the Calgary meeting. His name was Douglas Marshall of Gleannloch Farms. He will be always in my heart and mind. Thank you.

2008 REPORT:

Chile reports that in the year 2008, 209 foals were registered. There are approximately 250 active broodmares and 40 active breeding stallions.
