    Default General ammy vs. pro question re: stud fees

    Could probably post this in Off Topic, but maybe the answer will differ depending on the governing body and I'm really only curious about USEF rulings.

    If an amateur rider purchases a stallion, shows said stallion in amateur classes, and then decides to stand the stallion for a stud fee do they lose ammy status? Is a stud fee considered income?

    If you're not receiving compensation for riding or training, you're not in violation of the amateur rule.

    That does not affect amateur status. Accepting bona fide remuneration for services as a breeder is in the rulebook as an allowable activity for amateurs.
