[RC] What the AERC breeds page really means - Michael Maul

The AERC Breeds competing page at


has numbers next to each breed and a total at the end of the web page of 25,358.

What this means is that the number at the end is the total number of equines in the mileage program since 1984 when the present number system started.

The number next to each breed is the number of equines of that breed in AERC records since 1984.

For example of the total 25358, 13822 were Arabians. 16 were Icelandics and so on.

Comparing the table for 2003 to the one for 2004 will tell you how many new equines of that breed were entered in the AERC records in 2004.

In 2003 - there were 14 Icelandics in the mileage program. In 2004 - there were 16 which means 2 Icelandics were added to the program in 2004.

For Arabians - the number added was 13822 - 12766 = 1056 added.

While this is interesting - more useful information - at least to me - would be how many equines of each breed actually competed in 2004 and how many rides they did.

I'll work on it.
