Thanks to the advanced reproductive technologies currently available to the horse industry, on occasion, siblings from the same cross can be produced in the same breeding year. This is often the result of an embryo flush of a show mare that produced more than one viable embryo.
However, while it’s certainly possible, it’s very rare that both siblings actually make it to the show pen, and even rarer still that they both have what it takes to compete at the elite level of this sport.
Angela Wade and Gillian Chant have been friends since they were 14 years old. They both compete as amateurs in AQHA all-around competition under the guidance of Sea Ridge Farms and they do so on full siblings from the same embryo flush.
