Stallions are not required to be USEF Recorded to be ranked on the list. However, owners of stallions are encouraged to obtain a USEF Horse ID number, at no charge, if the stallion is not recorded. This assures the owner that complete breeding information and registration numbers are on file for the stallion. Once stallions are linked to their offspring via the ID number, the list will automatically reflect points earned by offspring.

The 2003 Leading Sire Awards will be presented during the Silver Stirrup Awards banquet at the U.S. Equestrian Annual Meeting, Thursday, January 15, at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles, CA. For more information visit the U.S. Equestrian website at www.usef.org or contact Krista Greathouse, Manager, Travel and Events, at 859-225-6961 or via email at kgreathouse@usef.org.
