Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity to Feature KR Reproduction Center/Southern Equine Associates Mare Bonus
Southwest Reining Horse Association Futurity officials announced in early October that KR Reproduction Center and Southern Equine Associates will become the 2013 SWRHA Futurity Mare Bonus naming sponsor.

The Mare Bonus, created to reward the show record of performing mares, awards $1,000 each to the highest advancing or placing mare entered in the Open and in the Non Pro Futurities.

Tamra Kyle, co-owner of KR Reproduction Center, noted, "For us, this sponsorship is a great fit. We're expanding our embryo transfer program through the partnership with Dr. Pat Garrett and Southern Equine Associates, and this is a good way to launch the expansion."
KR Reproduction Center operates at Kyle Ranch in Whitesboro, Texas. The ranch has stood exceptional stallions over the years like current resident stallion Einsteins Revolution and has performed embryo transfers for a decade with viable success percentages in the high eighties and nineties. Southern Equine Associates of Pilot Point, Texas, is a specialized veterinary practice offering reproduction services. The two entities have now come together with a new primary purpose of providing reproductive and embryo transfer service to the horse industry.

By utilization of state of the art equine reproductive technology, specialized facilities, year-round mare care service and an extensive and well managed recipient herd, all in conjunction with a staff dedicated to service and quality, the Center is already at the forefront in equine reproduction.

It was an easy choice to support the Southwest Reining Horse Association. Kyle continued, "The SWRHA is our local reining affiliate. Its phenomenal board works really hard and provides a great service for our industry with the Futurity horse show."

SWRHA Board of Directors member Jack Covington said, "We are very glad to welcome KR Reproduction Center and Southern Equine Associates as the naming sponsor of this important incentive. Tamra Kyle of KR and Dr. Pat Garrett of Southern Equine are true friends to our industry and to the Southwest Reining Horse Association."

Through the sponsorship, an embryo transfer including one flush and mare care service will be auctioned during the annual SWRHA Futurity Finals Draw Party. The package is valued at $3,300 and includes the use of the recipient mare until weaning, board and progesterone therapy until the 30-day pregnancy exam.
