ABOUT US


A Thoroughbred Passion – Proudly South African

 
 

The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association of South Africa was formed in 1920 to promote the South African Thoroughbred Bloodstock industry, and to safeguard and advance the interests of Thoroughbred breeders. The TBA plays a leading role in dealing with the Stud Book, The National Horseracing Authority, state veterinary bodies and other regulators and industry stakeholders. It advocates the interests of breeders on issues of equine health, welfare and research, import and export protocols and international best practices.

A shared passion for producing world class racehorses in the diverse environment of South Africa, is what drives us. Not only are we lucky enough to be home to the Big Five, wonderful bush lodges and mountainous landscapes but many of our stud farms are situated in the Cape Winelands, also well known for producing some of the best wines in the world.

The Thoroughbred Breeders’ Association of South Africa is a valuable source of information on all things Thoroughbred, and should be the first point of contact for any person seeking information on any aspect of the South African bloodstock industry, especially international visitors looking to travel to and invest here.
