Breeding and competing stallion. SH Noble Contender, aka “Dibs,” is quite the handsome young gentleman. He is just getting started in endurance, ranch versatility, and more! We will start breeding him spring of 2022 as he continues to prove himself worthy. So far, he is physically and mentally exactly what we are looking for in a stallion.
Our favorite cross is the 3/4 Arabian – 1/4 Quarterhorse, Tennessee calls it the “quarter quarter cross,” so breeding this stallion to your favorite purebred Arabian mares will give you this phenomenal “Quarter-Quarter” product in the first generation! The 3/4 Quarterhorse – 1/4 Arabian cross has also become hugely popular in the working ranch, rodeo, reining, and versatility sectors, so breeding Dibs to your favorite purebred Quarterhorse mares will also deliver that perfect 3/4QH cross in the first generation.

*Interested in breeding to Dibs? A genetic test is a prerequisite.
When breeding a mare for the 1st time, this is the best money you can spend, because you can find out if you will have a baby with genetic problems, and possibly avoid major heartbreak, not to mention the time and money savings. You only have to do it once (per mare.)
STEP 1: Go to https://www.animalgenetics.us/
Fill out the “Equine Genetic Test Form”
Under the test for genetic disorders, check the Box for the “Arabian panel.”
If you would also like to see what color the baby might be ahead of time, then under “test for coat color,” check the box for “color panel.”
Print this form and mail it, along with payment, and a zip-locked hair sample from your mare.
Step 2: Contact us at email@example.com and attach your genetic test results, and share information about your mare: conformation pictures and performance record. We will send you the breeding contract, and make arrangements to get your mare pregnant!
