    Heelsdown, I don't know the answer to that. The PSHA (the one I was thinking of) will register half-gaited horses with one parent's papers, or they will do the video/judging to see if they will accept a horse like ours. We bought ours at an action, without papers, but he was said to have been a registered fox trotter with champions in his blood lines. We don't show or breed, so it really doesn't matter, but he's our only unregistered horse so I have been curious about whether we could ever get him papered. That's how I stumbled across this PSHA registry.

    The only thing I can offer is that I am an owner of a TWH myself, and have been having a really really hard time writing a check for several hundred dollars to the TWHBEA for her registration to be transfered to my name. Not because of the $$$ but because of what the TWHBEA will do with it, in supporting their old ways and Big Lick industry. The IPWHA web site makes a big point of that -- how the money is spent, and that the TWHBEA does so much lobbying for the USDA to ease up on soring violations. Maybe this horse's owners decided not to send their $$$ to the TWHBEA and chose to register him through this new registry. I can see where that would make sense to someone who was passionate about stopping soring. Also, if the horse's original breeder got crosswise with the TWHBEA, the TWHBEA would come after them if they represented the horse as a TWH, just to make things harder.

    Just my two cents' worth...
