    It doesn't sound like there's any particular reason to register her, so if it's not easy to do (i.e. The sire & dam aren't already registered/approved) it's probably not worth pursuing. You might be able to register with the American Warmblood registry if you're in the U.S., and that might add a little bit of value if you ever have to sell her (or you decide to breed her)

    I leased a Hanoverian/TB cross a couple years ago and he was ~16.2 or 16.3hh. I thought he was plenty tall enough, especially when he decided to buck me off If the one you're looking at is 16hh as a 2 year old, I'd bet she'll end up at least 16.2hh. My BO has a Hanoverian who's taller than the measuring stick (18+ hh) and I have no idea how she even gets on him

    Sorry, but this is the wrong attitude to have. For a gelding, I could see it, but it is important that mares be registered in some way for future breeding purposes, to keep track of the bloodlines (wouldn't want to breed her to her brother!) and make sure her foals have some place to go as well.

    AWS or AWR are both a really a terrible option and both registries are a big joke. PHR would be better if neither sire or dam are approved anywhere.

    I did say that breeding or selling was a reason to register (because this is where the added value is). But not everyone is going to breed their mares (OP hasn't said anything about whether it's a possibility or not) and registering doesn't give a horse better conformation, temperament or talent (i.e. A poorly conformed foal is going to be hard to sell whether it is registered or not).

    I hadn't heard of the Performance Horse Registry until you mentioned it just now, so I can't comment on whether it's a more respected registry or not, or whether the mare or any resulting foals would be more valuable registered with them versus any of the other registries they would be eligible for (double registration might also be possible, but again, it's questionable whether that would be worthwhile or not)

    Of course, the flip side of that is that it isn't important as if you don't register the mare the responsible thing to do would be refrain from breeding - which negates the "need to register" for breeding purposes argument.
