Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry? Anyone ever hear of it?

Hi all,

Does anyone know anything about the Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry?

Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry - Frequently Asked Questions

I guess I am wondering if anyone has ever heard of it, and if it is a legitimate registry?

The reason I am asking, is that I am expecting a foal out of my registered Fox Trotter mare that I bought last fall, but I am not sure who the foal's sire is. If the baby shows gait, I am looking for a place to register it.

Any ideas?

By the way, I called the Missouri Fox Trotter Registry to find out some info on my mare, and she has had seven registered foals! Plus I think this will be the third non-registered foal the previous owner bred, so that makes 10 foals in her 16 years of life. No wonder my girl looks a little saggy, lol!

I look at most of these as just places to take your money.

It's like the APR and CKC in the dog registeries.


They take your registration fee, do a couple of shows but in general are not recognized by the public as a registry to add value to your horse. Especially when in their question and answer they are allowing a mixture of breeds.

It also doesn't seem to be requiring anything to certify in gait.

But overall it's your dollar, just realize that if you ever have to sell most will still consider the horse a grade if they aren't with any of the more recognized breed registeries.

If your mare is/was registered isn't there a way you could appendix the baby into the Foxtrotter Association? Like they do with the half arabs?

I'll second the above.

There are a lot of "registries" out there now that will give you certificates that aren't worth the paper they're printed on. It happens in dogs, and it happens in horses. I'm sure it happens with other domesticated species as well.

Whether or not the horse is "registered," the fact will still remain that the sire's breed/lineage is unknown. If I were looking to buy a horse for trail/pleasure, personally I'd rather buy from someone who acknowledged that they didn't know who the sire was.

A good horse is a good horse whether or not it has "papers."

Thanks guys! I agree with what you are saying, and I had a feeling this registry, while it might be okay, might never make it to real "breed" status.

And I am totally cool with grades. My favorite trail horse is a BLM Mustang.

I guess I was just exploring the options, because my Fox Trotter mare does have papers. I think "Dad" is a registered Quarter Horse, but I don't know his name. I think I am going to try to find that out, because then even if baby is a grade, it would be fun to know his breeding on both of his parents sides.

The Fox trotter registry will no longer grand-father in gaited horses, I checked. Most other gaited registries, while they did in the past, don't do it anymore either.

But that's okay, just exploring my options.
