In order for the AHA to register a horse as a purebred, the dam and sire would have to be on record as being DNA typed from 2002 to the present, or blood typed prior to 2002.
For half Arabians, the purebred parent would fall under the same criteria.
Without knowing who the mare's parents are, the AHA won't register the horse.
IF you could get all that information as well as a signed form from the person who owned the mare's dam at the time of foaling, the price for registering a horse over 2 years old is $375.00.
People saying a horse 'can be registered' usually don't know how hard it is to register the animal. Especially with the AHA, since they have very stringent rules on what they will or won't register.
