SH Noble Contender, aka “Dibs,” is quite the handsome young gentleman. He is just getting started in endurance, ranch versatility, and more. 2023 was supposed to be his first big season but on his very first ride, Tennessee blew her knee out (again) and had to rider option and have surgery, effectively ending her season of riding.
Dibs’ first foals were born April 2023 (Contenders Pride and Contenders Djoy) and we are VERY happy with them, excellent conformation and size, so we decided to have him collected and freeze some straws.
For those of you interested in Pedigrees, his quarter horse Dam’s lineage traces back to a few names you may have heard of like Poco Bueno, Two Eyed Jack, Doc Bar, Silver Skip, Blondys Dude and Ben Hur, among other greats. His Arabian Sire, Nobles Top Gun, is strong on Serafix, Salon, and Naseem, his pedigree includes Padron, Proboj, Ofir, and Skowronek.
Our favorite cross is the 3/4 Arabian – 1/4 Quarterhorse, Tennessee calls it her “quarter-quarter” cross so breeding this stallion to your favorite purebred Arabian mares will give you this phenomenal “Quarter-Quarter-Arabian” 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 for arabian mares.
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. Frozen semen is available now.
