Texas Arabian Breeders Association (TABA)
main website www.texasarabianbreeders.com
A Breed Organization with Official Status
Since the State of Texas offers pari-mutuel wagering on Arabian races with racetracks around the state hosting races for our breed, the Arabian horse is written into the Texas Racing Act as a racing breed along with the Thoroughbred, Quarter horse, Appaloosa and Paint. The Texas Arabian Breeders Association (TABA) is the organization mandated by the Texas Racing Commission to oversee the Accredited Texas Bred Program (ATB) for Arabian racehorses, a breeder incentive program.
Managing with Active Members and an Elected Board
Additionally, TABA manages Arabian racing in the state with a well organized Board of Governors who meet on a regular basis throughout the year. At these meetings, the board discusses all aspects of Texas Arabian racing and plans accordingly. The board implements those plans to make Texas Arabian racing an ever improving opportunity for those involved. For example, TABA promotes the Arabian breed and enhances the experience of Arabian horse ownership via sponsored racetrack festivities and educational seminars.
Dedicated to Arabian Horse Racing
Even in challenging conditions of the horse industry and general economic climate over the last decade, Texas Arabian racing has performed quite well. We have continued to strengthen both the Arabian breed's position in the Texas racing industry, and the popularity of the racing discipline within the Purebred Arabian market. We are optimistic about increasing purse monies for the Arabian breed at the racetracks, and will continue to make good progress for more racing opportunities. With a solid platform for growth, Arabian racing´s innovative leaders are on track to attract more Arabian racing participants and fans of the sport.
Even through difficult times (winning a race is fun, but you can't win 'em all) dedicated members of the Texas racing community have remained steadfast in their commitment to the Arabian breed. We appreciate the support of our sponsors and donors, as they make it possible for us to continue our promotional projects. We welcome you to join us.
