NAERIC is a non-profit association of equine ranchers that serves its members, the horse industry and general public as an agribusiness resource by providing the latest information and research on all aspects of the equine ranching industry—including equine ranch management, horse care, breeding practices and innovative marketing programs.
NAERIC light horses include popular breeds such as Quarter Horses, Paints, Appaloosas, Thoroughbreds, Standardbreds and others.
From the show ring to the hunt field, from the dressage arena to the cross-country course, CanAm Sport Horses are beginning to be recognized for their exceptional disposition, athleticism, and versatility. CanAm Sport Horses, produced by breeding a Thoroughbred stallion to a draft cross mare, are eligible for the NAERIC Incentive Program and can also be registered with the Performance Horse Registry.
NAERIC draft horses, including Clydesdales, Belgians and Percherons, are well-suited for show and competition. These large horses are purposeful animals and may also be purchased for general farm or pleasure use.
