What has KHAR accomplished this past year?
We have truly gone international with the addition of directors in Germany, Sweden, and Switzerland. We have launched the International Alliance of Kiger Mustang Breeders. This is a subsidiary / affiliate of Kiger Horse Association and Registry. One of the main focuses of the International Alliance of Kiger Mustang Breeders is to promote high standards and ethical breeding practices in order to preserve the integrity of the Kiger Mustang. We require all breeders to adhere to our Code of Ethics and submit an application for review to become an Approved Breeder. In addition to promoting ethical breeding practices, we are dedicated to the preservation and promotion of the Kiger Mustang Breed itself, and the promotion of both owner and breeder responsibility, acting as ambassadors of the breed to ensure the protection and quality of Kiger Mustangs.
We joined Facebook late December 2013 and have grown to over 500 REAL likes in one years time! Facebook really keeps you on your toes as you must constantly keep current by posting photos, articles of interest, announcements, and interesting tidbits of information and facts about Kigers. This must be done on a daily basis, often several times a day! We would like to encourage our membership to help participate in this by posting photos of your Kigers or announcements of past or future events you might know about or are participating in. Another way is to share what you have posted on your own timeline to the KHAR Facebook page. The more activity we can generate on our Facebook page the better! Please recommend that your friends Like our Facebook page! We just recently started a Facebook page for the International Alliance of Kiger Mustang Breeders.

We have had some of our members participate in some great promotional events this past year! A big hand to those in Sweden, Germany and Canada for their efforts in promoting internationally! We have members getting their horses out in the public eye daily participating in endurance, showing, trail riding, gymkhana, lessons, youth activities, and more! Keep up the great work members!
We are looking forward to an exciting year for the Kiger horse. There are some great things in the works that will help to further promote and bring the Kiger horse more stability. So please jump on board and partnership up with KHAR as we promote this magnificent breed and help to make the Kiger horse the most desired horse in the world!
