As you may know, the AHA has an exclusive license to operate and maintain the Arabian Horse Registry (AHR) for purebred Arabian horses in the United States. In early 2021, AHA’s information technology environment suffered network interruptions. AHA followed the advice of its cybersecurity experts and by May 6, AHA had restored operations on nearly all of its systems. Nevertheless, on May 14, the Purebred Arabian Trust (PAT) sent a letter to AHA claiming the purebred Arabian Horse registry was inoperable and demanding that AHA transition the purebred registry to PAT. On July 7, PAT sued AHA, claiming that AHA’s ongoing technical and software problems rendered our ability to manage purebred registration services inoperable for several weeks, in breach of the agreement between AHA and PAT stating that AHA would maintain the registry.
