Genetics and Genetic Disorders

The AHA Equine Stress, Research and Education Subcommittee on Genetic Disorders has developed this special section on genetics and genetic disorders of particular interest to the Arabian breed. The goals are to help educate the Arabian horse community, promote genetic testing, encourage disclosure of test results, and support continued research.

To help support research efforts, the Arabian Horse Foundation was officially re-launched at the 2007 AHA Convention. This 501(c)(3) organization focuses on several areas of funding, including equine research with an emphasis on studies impacting the Arabian breed. Of special note, support from the Foundation has been instrumental in the development of DNA tests for Cerebellar Abiotrophy (CA) and Lavender Foal Syndrome (LFS). Please participate in supporting the Foundation's efforts by sending your tax deductible contributions designated for research to: Arabian Horse Foundation, Treasurer - Jim Cada, 1024 K. St., Lincoln, NE 68508. For more information on the Foundation or to make a contribution online click here.
