Register a draft cross?

I saw a post the other day and I can't find it now to save my life. It was a post that mentioned that a draft cross horse could be registered. I was wondering about that. Is there such a registry that will register the average draft cross? Do both parents have to be registered or will they allow it if only 1 is registered? Does it matter what breed of draft horse it is or what breed the other parent is?

The reason that I am wondering is that I have a draft cross foal that I would love to register if I could. His daddy is a reg. QH but mom is an unpapered Belgian. If anyone knows of a registry that would register such a horse, that would be awesome if you could tell me what it is.

You are probably thinking of the sport horse registry:

American Sporthorse


This one I have heard of, but I don't know anything about it's reputation.

Both above registries will work but do nothing for the horse or owner.

Try the AWS for if accepted there are many benifits available to you.

If they do nothing for the horse or owner, then what do they do exactly.

I have actually just this minute started the Half Draft Texas Ranch Horse registry or HDTRHR. You can just send me a picture of your horse and the lineage along with $50 cash and I will put you in the database. There is of course a $100 annual membership fee that will have to be paid but you get a sticker for the window of your truck and discounts on other HDTRHR gear.

Okay smarty pants!

Seriously though, what is a registry for (unless you are breeding or breed showing)?

Is it just a status thing? Solon is in the Percheron Horse Association registry. He's sired one filly but other than that it's a pretty little form and that's about it.

You forgot the fact that you don't live in Texas! Although, I'm sure some people wouldn't put that together!

For an established association like the AQHA or the AHA, it's all about producing consistent breed type, as well as improvement of the breed.

These fly-by-night organizations do nothing but take your money and give you a pretty piece of paper so you can say your horse is registered.

Which organization registers the animal is what makes it a big deal or not. For established, recognized breed organizations, they won't accept just any old horse with unknown bloodlines. The crappy ones will take anything.

If you have a grade cross, you have a grade cross. If you wanted something with papers that actually mean something, you should have bought a horse from an established breeder.

Trying to get something registered after the fact is all about vanity for the owner, as far as I'm concerned.
