I would then offer it only regionally, to approved mares only. That would make the offer more legit. Say that the offer is good only for mares residing in your state or within X amount of miles from your location. Also have fine print that the breeding must be used in 2009 and is non-transferable (they can't sell the breeding).
Making it to approved mares only and non-transferable (unless the mare dies or becomes unfit for breeding) gives you more credibility.
