**New conditions starting with 2018 breeding season
- For the offspring to be considered Quebec Bred, the broodmare must remain at least 200 days in Quebec between January 1st and December 31st of the year of breeding. The broodmare must be registered in the mare residency program within the pre-approved guidelines set by the CJQ, which is before 31 October of the year of breeding and the foal must be born in the province of Quebec.
If the registration of the mare is done after the allotted time, the CJQ will require an explanation of the owner in writing, accompanied by at least one supporting document (eg: transfer papers, canceled check for the sale of the mare, customs paper, etc.) and late registration fees will apply.
At all times, the CJQ reserves the right to refuse any mare in the program if the proof supporting documents are doubtful, incomplete or nonexistent.
In the case where the broodmare is sold / leased before completing her residency, but remains in Quebec to meet the terms of the agreement, the foal will then be considered as Quebec bred and will have the right to participate in the * Quebec circuit.
Please be advised that documentation will be required. For example ; proof of transfer or lease agreement of the mare, new location of the broodmare if applicable, etc.
