    • There are many safety issues that make embryo transfer a reasonable option for many mares. Embryo transfer means:
      1. A donor mare isn't put at risk carrying her own foal.
      2. A donor mare can still show/compete.
      3. A donor mare can still produce even if she can't carry her own foal.
      4. A donor mare can produce several foals per year depending on the rules under the breed registry.
  • Artificial Cycling of mares under lights for earlier foals
  • Artificial Insemination with frozen or fresh cooled semen from the stallion of their choice
    • The advantages of Artificial Insemination include:
      1. Increased safety - lower risk of venereal diseases.
      2. Increased safety - no risk of stallion-induced injury to the mare during breeding.
      3. Stallion efficiency - up to 10+ mares can be bred on one semen catch
