What Our Clients Say
"When we discovered that our Tuigpaard stallion Kaareltje had a testicular cyst that would eventually render him infertile, and could even become cancerous, it was an easy decision to castrate him to keep him healthy. We had not even considered freezing his semen, but when Dr. Loomis suggested it might enable us to have his offspring in the future it sounded like an amazing option. Thanks to Select Breeder's Services we have had six lovely foals to date and have another on the way - five years after our beloved boy was gelded! Words can't express my gratitude for the amazing work you have done to preserve our stallion's rare bloodlines in such spectacular foals as Ishin Maru, pictured."
— Michele Roberts, Firemist Farm, Monkton, MD
"The expertise at Select Breeders made my decision easy. When I told my clients that Radical was standing with SBS they knew the brand and had confidence in getting results. Plus using frozen semen completely opened up my ability to breed mares internationally. It’s a wonderful comfort to have SBS handle all the issues related to import & export!"
— Diane Chilton, owner of AQHA World Champion, Senior Western Pleasure stallion, Radical Rodder
“Since 1997 I have used SBSItalia’s professional services for the production, storage and international distribution of frozen semen. The technology of frozen semen has allowed me to achieve pregnancies in many countries of the world and to recognize the value of Shahil and the other stallions that we have selected over the years.”
— Francesco Santoro, Breeder
“SBS is really on the cutting edge, without all the services they provide, it would not have been so easy for Burning Sand to have risen to the worldwide status he´s achieved. SBS is a simple one stop shop for somebody like me... all I do is call and they take care of everything.”
— Todd Moak, Co-Owner of Burning Sand
"I like the convenience of frozen semen - not having to worry if my mare will ovulate on a day when Fed Ex can't get to me or the stallion owner doesn't collect. With the timed insemination protocol that SBS developed, every 6 hour ultrasounds aren't necessary. SBS has been great to work with. I can trust the quality of the frozen semen and I feel confident that it is properly stored and shipped”.
— Dr. Elizabeth Callahan, veterinarian, mare owner and 2009 USEF Leading Event Breeder
"In our hands SBS frozen semen has consistently provided high pregnancy rates when compared to semen from other sources. I also like the timed-insemination protocol because it allows some flexibility when breeding mares. Their success is our success and I believe that is related to accurate semen handling and freezing techniques and a top notch quality control program."
— Dr. Andy Schmidt, Wisconsin Equine Clinic
"We strongly recommend that you use Select Breeders Services! Over the years we have benefited from all the services that SBS and its affiliates provide worldwide. SBS has supported our breeding farms in a timely, efficient and professional way through semen freezing, storage and distribution. Our stallions have worked both in Italy and the United States and, thanks to frozen semen from SBSW and SBSItalia, we were able to inseminate mares and those of our customers regardless of whether they were based in Europe or the U.S. We believe that SBS has had a major role in helping the Quarter Horse breeding industry become more global."
— Mr. Eleuterio Arcese, NRHA Hall of Fame, and Sophie Oak
"Michael Byatt Arabians is well represented in the show rings of the World due in part to the amazing work done by Select Breeders in sending the frozen semen from our stallions to all parts of the globe. From South Africa to the UAE to Australia and Norway, Select Breeders is an invaluable partner in getting our job done. On to the next 20 years of cooperation."
— Michael Byatt of Michael Byatt Arabians
"By freezing Popeye it allowed him to stay in work and not have his show schedule interrupted. We were able to keep him more fit and focused on his show career and still put babies on the ground. He has bred approximately 350 mares, all while earning several Horse of the Year titles. He froze so well and it made shipping and breeding so easy for my mare owners that we have never felt the need to ship him any other way."
— Rachel Spencer, owner of Popeye K
"SBS is the most reliable and professional freezing service available. When shipping millions of dollars worth of semen to other countries, I would trust no other company. Our stallions deserve the BEST and and SBS is by far the BEST. That is why we’ve been working with SBS for almost 20 years!"
— Laura Young, Farm Manager at Southwind Farms
"Although Custom Legend was fully booked for 2010, he was able to come out of retirement to train for the upcoming competition season without losing any breeding fees or disappointing any clients."
— Steve Simon, owner of Custom Legend
