The ABRA office must receive Exhibition Lease Applications at least 30 days prior to showing.
Lessee MUST present their Lease Acknowledgement to the show office with entry form.
ABRA will reduce the 30-day waiting period to 15 days when accompanied by a rush fee, providing the lessee can show proof the equine is currently under lease with an ABRA recognized breed association. This application must be filed in the ABRA office at least 30 days prior to showing the equine in ABRA amateur classes.
An official ABRA embossed Amateur Exhibition Lease acknowledgment will be sent to the named amateur. This acknowledgment should be presented to show management with the copy of the equine's registration papers, a copy of the last recorded owner's current ABRA membership card, and the current ABRA amateur membership card, whenever making entries in ABRA amateur classes, and the owner of the equine must be listed on the show entry form as the last recorded owner on the registration papers.
An exhibition lease does not grant a lessee or lessee's agent authorization to sign breeder's certificate(s), stallion breeding reports, transfers, or registration applications for the equine.
The lessee must be responsible for expenses associated with the care of the equine: boarding, feeding, routine farrier services, and routine veterinary services.
During the term of the exhibition lease, only the lessee and lessee's immediate family (spouse, son, daughter, step-son, step-daughter) may show the equine.
