How does a QH and TB become AQHA?

How is it that TB and QH cross can be registered AQHA? Does the TB have to be inspected or something?

I believe (from what I've heard, haven't actually looked into it in depth) that the foal must be inspected, otherwise it'll only be eligable for Appendix registry. Automatic AQHA registry (when you file anyway) is 3/4+ QH to TB blood. So an Appendix with a QH would be AQHA registerable.

Thanks to Drifter and his questionable lines- I am a pro at this question! haha

A TB/QH can only be registered as an appendix unless it wins enough points to be qualified as full QH. Drifter is actually a third generation appendix, but both his sire and grandsire won enough ROM points on the track to be classified as "QH" and not as an appendix.

Like, Drifter's grandsire was an appendix who was bred to a TB, but it shows up as QH to TB on Drifter's papers since AQHA granted him "full QH" status. So the resulting colt (Drifters sire) was an appendix who then won "full QH" status just like his father. HE was then bred to a TB to get Drifter.

So drifter is listen as 50/50 but in reality he is about 10% QH and 90% QH.

AQHA is so weird. I first noticed this when I was looking through Drifter's lines and was like pulling my hair going "WHERE IS THE QUARTER HORSE?! YOU ARENT A QUARTER HORSE!"

Okay, so then after that if you breed, since they (stallion or mare) are registered QH, the foal can be registered AQHA.

If you have an Appendix that gets rewarded "full QH" status, and in turn gets regular QH papers from AQHA and breed that horse with a QH mare/stallion then yes the resulting foal is then a QH.

Several founding AQHA horses came from TB lines hence AQHA allows TB as an outcross to AQHA. One parent does have to be AQHA registered & the resulting foal will be designated under the Appendix AQHA registry,not regular.Progeny of said from AQHA mating , will also be appendix registered.Also They will not accept mating of 2 appendix AQHA.They can apply to advance to regular registry papers if they earn a ROM & pass inspection.

I have an appendix foaly on the way out of my tb mare. I have to have her DNA tested and a bunch of paperwork filled out for her to be put into the aqha database. They give the tb parent what is known as a t number.

Tbs can only be bred to full paper qhs to produce appendix babies. Appendixes cannot cross with other appendixes or full thoroughbreds.

Like said above if an appendix is bred to a full papered qh the resulting foal will be appendix registered. An appendix can be advanced in their papers by getting enough register of merit (rom) show points or by receiving a certain speed index on the track or a certain amount of earnings on the track.
