“The new Great American Stallion Incentive is designed to create a large purse to give owners, trainers and breeders a reward for their hard work and money invested in breeding, raising and training these amazing animals,” explained Kristen Galyean, creator of the incentive program. Galyean’s two stallions, VS Code Red and VS Flatline, are subsidizing the $30,000 purse this year.

“As a stallion owner, I asked myself how I could help create some excitement for the industry and give back to those investing in its future. That’s where the Great American Stallion Incentive was born.”

“My goal for the incentive is to promote the pleasure horse industry and bring excitement to the events for the owners, trainers and breeders,” said Galyean. I would love to see it continue to grow every year with additional stallions entering the program to reward more foals.

“Showing horses has had a monumental impact on my life,” explained Galyean. “I started out showing a retired racehorse in every 4-H competition that I could talk my mom and dad into taking me to. I loved every second I spent on the back of a horse. I’ll never forget the moment I had the opportunity to sit on the back of a real show horse – Conclusive Bar Cody. Professional Horsewoman, Jackie Krshka was giving me my very first riding lesson, and the feel of ‘Milton’ is something I will remember forever. From that moment, I was hooked for life.

“Fast forward to today, horses have opened so many doors for me and taught me the importance of hard work and the confidence that comes with achieving your goals. Showing horses helped shape me into who I am today. I’m very thankful for the industry that gave me a platform to enjoy the American Quarter Horse with my friends and family. It’s important to me that I do my part to help ensure the quarter horse industry continues to thrive so my daughters and future generations have the opportunity to enjoy and grow up in such an amazing environment that the American Quarter Horse Association provided me.”
