Purebred Registration

How Do I...  Register My over 2 year old Horse?

Registration normally begins with the completion of an application form. Applications can be mailed to you from our office, or they may be completed online, and faxed or mailed. If you were not the recorded owner of the dam at the time of foaling and would like to register the foal in your name, you will also need a completed Transfer for Eligible but Unregistered Foal Form. Also, if you were not the recorded owner of the dam at the time of breeding and would like to be listed as the breeder, you will need a completed Assignment of Breeder Designation Form. These forms can also be found on this web site or they can be mailed to you.

Once the Association has received your completed application and fee, you will receive a blood kit or DNA kit, depending on the foal's birth date and whether or not the parents have been DNA typed. A sample can then be obtained and sent the laboratory. Instructions are included with all DNA and blood testing kits.

For foals born before 2002, either blood typing OR DNA typing can be used for parentage verification at registration. If both parents have a DNA type on file, we will use DNA to register the foal. If both parents have only a blood type on file, blood typing will be used to register the foal.

When all registration requirements have been met, you will receive your Certificate of Registration.

Registration requirements, forms, and fees differ slightly depending on how the foal was conceived. Choose one of the following for additional directions regarding registration:

Foals conceived using natural, pasture or AI breeding
Foals conceived using transported/stored semen
Embryo transfer foals

Following are step by step instructions to help you complete a standard application for registration. Please note; if any of the information on the application is left blank it may delay the registration process. Please exercise care when completing your application, as incorrect information can result in rejection or cancellation of the registration.

Check the boxes within the "instruction" area on the application, if you wish to order DNA kits for the sire or the dam. Remember, for foals born 2002 and after, DNA is required for both the sire and dam in order for the foal to be registered.

Section 1: Dam Owner's Certificate

  1. Enter two name choices. If your first choice has been taken, we will use your second choice. If the second choice has been taken, we will send you a letter requesting a third choice. Names can be no longer than 21 characters (including spaces). No punctuation is allowed, with the exception of a hyphen (-). A hyphen will be counted as a space. There can be no more than four parts to the name. For instance, "MY FAN-SEE GIRL TJ" would not be an acceptable name, because it is made up of five parts.
  2. Enter the month, day and year the foal was born.
  3. Check the appropriate box that describes the color of your foal. If you check the box labeled "Roan", please include photos with your application. If you would like to review our color descriptions, click here.
  4. Check mare, stallion or gelding to indicate the sex of the foal. If this is a gelding, please enter the castration date as well.
  5. Enter the sire's registered name, registration number and color.
  6. Enter the dam's registered name, registration number and color.
  7. The recorded owner of the dam at the time of foaling will need to sign here. If the recorded owner of the dam at the time of foaling has placed an authorized signer on file with the Association, this authorized signer is also allowed to sign here. If you are purchasing this foal from the dam owner, you do not sign in this section. Only the dam owner or authorized agent is an acceptable signature. (Please note; if you were not the recorded owner of the dam at the time of foaling and you are purchasing this foal, you will need a Transfer for Eligible but Unregistered Foal Form or a bill of sale to be submitted with this application. There is an additional $15.00 transfer fee for this process.)
  8. The last part of this section should be completed with the dam owner's telephone number, owner number and the date on which this section was signed.

Section II: Breeder's Certificate

  1. The dam's name and registration number should be entered first in this section.
  2. The recorded owner of the dam at the time of breeding will need to sign here. If the recorded owner of the dam at the time of breeding has placed an authorized signer on file with the Association, this authorized signer is also allowed to sign here. However, if you or someone else is to be listed as breeder (instead of the owner of the dam at the time of breeding), you will need to submit an Assignment of Breeder Designation Form, along with this application. If an Assignment of Breeder Designation form is submitted, the assigned breeder will then be required to sign in this section. There is an additional fee of $15.00 to process and Assignment of Breeder Designation form.
  3. The last part of this section should be completed with the dam owner's or assigned breeder's telephone number, owner number and the date on which this section was signed.

Section III: Service Certificate

  1. The stallion's name and registration number should be entered first in this section.
  2. The dam's name and registration number should be entered next.
  3. The next three lines are to report the type of breeding and dates on which it occurred. Please enter breeding dates in the box next to the appropriate breeding method. If multiple breeding dates were necessary, please include them all. Unless multiple breeding methods were used, you will only enter dates in one of the three boxes. Reminder: Don't forget to enter the year on the far right side.
  4. The recorded owner of the sire at the time of breeding will need to sign here. If the recorded owner of the sire at the time of breeding has placed an authorized signer on file with the Association, this authorized signer is also allowed to sign here.
  5. The last part of this section should be completed with the sire owner's telephone number, owner number and the date on which this section was signed.

Section IIII: Markings

  1. The reverse side of the application provides a section to record the markings for your horse. Please draw any white markings present on the face and legs. The hoof color should also be indicated, as well as any brands, tattoos or body markings. Be sure to look for pink skin and check the "pink skin" boxes if your horse is grey.
