OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE…
The meaning of deNovo, an early 17th-century Latin word,
“In a pure meritocracy, everyone or everything must start at the beginning.”
The mission of deNovo.horse is simple – it’s all about serving you as an owner and/or breeder on the mission of raising and/or owning the best horse you can. We want to enable you, with the aid of the search functions of this website, to make the right decisions in today’s sometimes confusing performance horse industry. This includes the high-paying aged events sanctioned by the National Cutting Horse Association (NCHA), the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) and their combined cousin, the National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA), which demands both cutting and reining skills – and then some. And to top it off, today, there are a few exceptional all-around horses, trained and ridden by a talented small group of trainers, who excel in two or even all three of these events .. with several pots of gold at the end of the rainbow.
Today, most horse owners, figure out which direction they want to go when breeding for their next champion. Their choices include using a broodmare they already have or buying the best-bred performing and/or producing mare they can afford and breeding her to the best siring stallion in the event or events they are interested in and that they can afford. However, http://deNovo.horse has been created with the mission of informing you about other selection choices that you have in today’s creative and versatile performance horse industry.

It is proven that the pedigrees of certain sire do increase the probability of a performer in the show pen. But as every showman knows, along with that perfect performance, they were preceded by many near misses or complete losses.
Factors that may have hindered a sires performance earnings can still make that sire a viable breeding option, based on pedigree alone.
Every owner and trainer hopes for that perfect performance, to raise both themselves and the horse into an overnight success. But as every showman knows, along with that perfect performance, they were preceded and followed by many “almosts.” How a horse performs on the day does not always govern how their offspring will perform. There are many sires and dams that had mediocre earnings and went on to have incredible offspring.
Now in the breeding barn they may have substantially lower fees, and still have the ability to breed great performers.
COMPARE OFFSPRING EARNINGS
Comparing offspring earnings is another way to search and keep up with the stallion or mare
