I am shattered. I lost my horse of a lifetime on Saturday 19th June 2010. I cannot begin to describe the sense of loss and the void that now exists.

Valoration Trip - October 2010 archived : Dec 2010

Dear PRE Owner/Breeder
We will be conducting a Valoration in early/mid October this year for all horses you wish to present for breeding approval with ANCCE, Spain.

To be eligible, horses must:

We are now taking applications for valorations for this trip. These are required as a matter of priority so that we can organise flights and locations for the visit. Please forward your application by the end of August, or by prior arrangement with me.

Please fill out the attached International Application for Service form at the top of the form. At section B, please input the horse's name, and their Spanish codigo which appears on their passport. Don't forget to sign at the bottom left hand side of the form. If you are confused with how to find their codigo, don't worry - I can find this information for you!

The fee this year has been reduced to $350 per horse. Horses will need to travel to a central location, but all breeder's situations will be taken into account when we organise the viewing locations.

Please forward the completed form, and a cheque made out to PREAA, to PO Box 272, Eaglehawk, Vic 3556 as soon as possible.

It is important that we conduct a valoration trip each year, and we do this in conjunction with New Zealand.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards
Catherine Jones
Pura Raza Espanola Association of Australasia (PREAA)

Jerezs legacy will live on. archived : May 2010

I am very sad to tell you that Jerez was put down on Thursday night. He had a bout of colic & could not overcome it. The last twelve months of his life he ran with his band of mares & certainly enjoyed the privilages of a range stallion!

Further PRE eligibility of horses in Australia archived : May 2010

Dear Breeder/Owner,
PREAA have been petitioning Spain for further PRE eligibility of horses in Australia. This has been a long, slow process, but bit by bit we are making ground.
In 2005 when the Cria Caballar/FESCCR closed its registers for the Spanish Stud Book to further horses in Australia (allowing only progeny of those already approved for breeding to be registrable in the Spanish Stud Book) there were certain conditions of that closure that allowed some further horses to go through.

P.R.E.A.A. President in Spain archived : August 2008

Catherine Jones has been summoned to Spainto attend a 5 day training course on the topic of "Handling and Management of the PRE Stud Book". Catherine will be attending on behalf of PREAA. During this visit she will be making appointments with high level executives of ANCCE and the Stud Book managers to begin the process of wading though the long list of horses we sent them late last year (approx 200) that had not previously been presented in Australia, in the hope that they may be eligible for inclusion into the Spanish Stud Book.
