Yes, the RMH has been closed for some time now, but the Kentucky Mountain still registers grade mares under their appendix category. The fee rises the longer you wait to register so I would call the office and find out which registry she would be eligible under since her sire is Spotted Mountain horse. Many KMH and Rocky horses trot in the pasture and gait when under saddle so you have a 50/50 chance she will gait.

A few years back I registered a grade chocolate mare in the appendix through KMH. Could NOT get her to gait a lick so the registration never went any further since she couldn't be certified, but she was still registered Kentucky Mountain Saddle Horse. Just depends if you want to spend the money.

As to the KY Incentive fund, I thought that both horses had to be registered and Incentive Fund registered to be eligible.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

From my own point of all depends on what you want to do with her. If she is gaited, then she will be worth more whether she is registered or not.
If you don't want to breed or show her, my first thought would be why bother?
As the saying can't ride papers.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.

What you said really cleared up my confusion - I thought that if I paid the $70 and then she never gaited, then it was basically throwing money away because she couldn't be fully registered... But she would be registered, just not certified.

As far as showing goes, I'm leaving that mostly up to her. I'd like to show, especially if she's good, but it's not the reason I got her.

I think maybe I will go ahead and register her as appendix. It may be nice to have if I ever change my mind about breeding or more competitive showing.

For the Incentive Fund, I think I'm just going to have to call them. Between KY Mountain, Spotted Mountain, Rocky Mountain and everything else... A phone call will be a lot easier.

Thanks for answering everyone :)

You probably want to call them anyway, because the way I am reading the rules it states that, starting in 2012, ALL KMSH must be certified as to gait by the time they are four years of age or their temporary registration expires. So if Macslady has a "non certified" KMSH she may or may not actually be registered, depending on what the rules were at the time. Clear as mud, no? And as far as riding papers, no, you can't, but it comes in handy for other things. I know who bred my mare in Kentucky, how long they owned her before selling her to a ranch in Montana, and who bought her and brought her to Arkansas, where she ended up with me. When you buy a grade horse, you generally have no more info on the horse's history than the seller chooses to reveal (if indeed they know). Even age on a grade horse is often a guesstimate.

We sold her and she was listed as a grade appendix mare and I think she will be "grandfathered" in since the appendix allowed you to breed, but if it produced a colt you could only register them by gelding them. Doesn't matter we sold her anyway and she did go a lot quicker since she did have papers and she was chocolate. A lot of people say you can't ride papers, but most of the time I like to have them to show age, and since the RMH and KMH do dna they are a bit more trustworthy. I believe that is why now QH and some of the others are using dna more and more.

I would go ahead and get her temporary registration and dna is part of the charge, then you should know when you put her under saddle if she gaits or not, which would at the age of 3 so you have plenty of time.

KMH must be starting to close their books to appendix hence the change in policy. I know they have been doing it for several years.
