BREED question (not breeding)

I was looking for an old horse I wanted to buy eons ago on Allbreedpedigree and clicked on one to see it's bloodlines and was stunned to see a QH with Standardbred lineage.

So, what are the criteria for a "purebred" horse/registering purposes? I'm just curious - I'm not looking to register Chili (have her papers but don't see the point since I'm not going to show her or breed her!) but would like to know.

It depends on the registry, but many require both parents of the horse to be registrable with the breed association. Others require only one parent to be registerable with the association. You can hopefully see how it's sort of a domino effect?

Things get tricky when a horse is a crop out. Many registeries, like the jockey club I believe and the AQHA for sure, have strict rules about how much white a horse may have. "Pure Bred" or not a quarter horse with a white patch on it's hip cannot be registered with the AQHA. They've been playing with that rule lately though.

The other thing about Allbreedpedigree is that anyone can enter or edit things there.

More than once I have found my horse's pedigree edited to be incorrect.

This. Allbreedpedigree is a "Wiki' site. Nobody monitors the entries, and not using the same registered name twice only applies within the registry. So it's entirely possible to have five different registered horses with the exact same name due to them being with five different registries.

No, a QH with Standardbred blood could not be registered with AQHA. So more likely then not it was a typo and the person didn't realize they'd pulled up the wrong breed for that name.

I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.

There is also instances of horse owners (one stud in particular comes to mind) that change the names in the pedigree on allbreed to show that a horse is not Impressive breed when in fact it is. Said stallion is also N/H.
