Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The EBRA's priority now is breed preservation and genetic diversity. We are working to identify and register all purebred European Brabants, and European Brabant Stock horses in an effort to broaden gene diversity and bolster the numbers of purebred European Brabant draft horses in the Americas. European Brabant Stock designated horses with 50-93.75% verifiable European Brabant heritage will be reviewed by the Registrar and issued a certificate showing the horses verifiable European Brabant heritage. The specific goal of the EBS designation is to identify horses of European Brabant heritage who may be used to produce genetically diverse offspring for the eventual inclusion within the European Brabant designation through the process of breeding up," while also preserving the European Brabant breed standard. The European Brabant Registry of America Evaluation Committee will consider and assess each horse for inclusion.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The EBRA's main goal is breed preservation and will focus on identifying and registering purebred European Brabants through the use of existing registry information from European nations, ancestry tracing and DNA profiles of imported European Brabants and their offspring. The Registry will safeguard pedigrees and changes of ownership in the Americas thereafter. Simultaneously, the Registry is identifying and registering European Brabant Stock horses for consideration and assessment for inclusion. The EBRA also has the goal of providing additional Member support through Member's only website access, quarterly meetings, phone consultations, webinars, educational clinics, podcasts and more. For all Registry Members, a dedicated online resource of health and welfare tools and tips will be made available. Educational articles and videos on such topics as diet, exercise, dental, reproduction and more will be provided. An online forum linked to the European Brabant Registry of America website will allow Members to engage and help each other on all matters health and welfare related. Given one of the missions of the Registry is to highlight the breed's versatility, the website will showcase horses in various occupations, share humane training tips, allow Members to share their stories and pictures and exhibit their horses' skills. In doing so, the Registry will attract more people to the breed from a variety of disciplines and backgrounds. In addition to the aforementioned Member benefits online, the website will allow Members to promote their horses for breeding and sales.

The European Brabant Registry of America will provide registration services of purebred European Brabants through the use of existing registry information from European nations, ancestry tracing and DNA profiles of imported European Brabants and their offspring. The Registry will then provide a database service and provide ownership transfer services thereafter. The Registry will provide horse evaluation services for registry, Membership support services, Stallion Health Report services, farm Prefix Registration services, Ownership Transfer services, Breeder Affidavit services and Owner Affidavit services.

The European Brabant Registry of America has a genetic testing system in place through UC Davis, a pedigree/ancestry tracing service with Grassroots, and a dedicated Registrar who diligently researches and verifies every horse for inclusion in one of the studbooks. Our social media platforms, YouTube channel and podcast are a platform to reach our Members and non-members alike and to inform them of our services, educate them on the breed and help preserve this endangered heritage breed.

The European Brabant Registry of America is presently two years ahead of our projected goals from start-up. All studbooks are performing above and beyond projected numbers, our Membership base is slowly increasing, we launched the Ambassador Program two years ahead of schedule, we launched our dedicated breed show four years ahead of schedule, and our online education clinics were launched three years ahead of schedule. We are proud to have accomplished so much in such a short period of time.

Data
  • We review compensation data across the organization (and by staff levels) to identify disparities by race.
  • We ask team members to identify racial disparities in their programs and / or portfolios.
  • We analyze disaggregated data and root causes of race disparities that impact the organization's programs, portfolios, and the populations served.
  • We disaggregate data to adjust programming goals to keep pace with changing needs of the communities we support.
  • We employ non-traditional ways of gathering feedback on programs and trainings, which may include interviews, roundtables, and external reviews with/by community stakeholders.
  • We disaggregate data by demographics, including race, in every policy and program measured.
  • We have long-term strategic plans and measurable goals for creating a culture such that one’s race identity has no influence on how they fare within the organization.
Policies and processes
  • We use a vetting process to identify vendors and partners that share our commitment to race equity.
  • We have a promotion process that anticipates and mitigates implicit and explicit biases about people of color serving in leadership positions.
  • We seek individuals from various race backgrounds for board and executive director/CEO positions within our organization.
  • We have community representation at the board level, either on the board itself or through a community advisory board.
