There is no entitlement to credits or discounts for the first stud fee. The first part of the stud fee is due with the first insemination of the mare. 

 

The second part of the stud fee is due when the mare is pregnant. Proof of non-pregnancy must be provided by the breeder with a veterinary certificate by October 1, without being asked. If the veterinary certificate is not available on October 1, the second stud fee is automatically due.

 

Not included in the stud fee are costs for EU certificate, shipping and pension costs.
