Mls-I'm not looking for a battle over terminology, or I'm the last one to get a dig in. A lease thru a mare owner that is not going to be an AQHA registration, sure it really doesn't matter. However, The lease agreement HAS TO GO THRU THE AQHA to "PROVE" ownership of the foal and to be able to register the foal in your name and earn points,etc as you had already stated. Kinda of important, don't you think? Control and through are not the same. Filing the lease report with the AQHA is going through their channels to keep the lease "recognized" by the AQHA, enough said.
Practice does NOT make perfect. Perfect practice makes perfect.
