CHAPTER 10: RULES AND REGULATIONS FOR PUREBRED ARABIAN, HALF-ARABIAN, AND ANGLO-ARABIAN REGISTRATION
These Rules and Regulations refer to the Arabian Horse Association, Inc. as the "AHA Registry" unless it is stated otherwise, or unless it can be gathered from the context that something else is meant. The term "Registry" also refers to the Registrar of the AHA Registry and to appointed representatives.
The Registration Commission may prescribe whatever procedures necessary to carry out these Rules and Regulations.
The principal objective of the AHA Registry is to facilitate the preservation and improvement of purebred Arabian, Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses. In furtherance of that objective, the AHA Registry maintains an official registry of purebred Arabian, Half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian horses and administers the supplemental identification program as a registration requirement for purebred Arabian race horses. The AHA Registry may refuse to register any horse or to issue a Certificate of Registration for Racing if such registration or issuance is not in conformity with these Rules and Regulations or, in the reasonable judgment of the AHA Registry, will not aid, promote and foster the objectives of the AHA Registry as stated in its Articles of Incorporation.
Any member, and any person signing any portion of a document required for the registration of a horse, the issuance of a Certificate of Registration for Racing, or the transfer of a Certificate of Registration and any person who has a Certificate of Registration transferred into their ownership, agrees to follow these Rules and Regulations, including revisions as made from time to time, and to be bound by them.
It is the responsibility of the person who seeks to register a horse to be aware of the applicable requirements for such transactions at the time the submittal or request is made.
All AHA programs and events deadlines must be met as specified, whether submitted by postal service, fax, e-mail, Internet or other electronic means.
