I'm new to the list and I'm proudly owned by a 4 year old part arab. I'm in the process of trying to get a hold of the original breeder but I don't think it's going to happen. The guy I bought him from claims his father was a Missouri Fox Trotter and his mom was a half Arab, half Quarter horse. However, this guy looks like a pure bred Polish arab (better built then most with a far finer head in my opinion). He does have some gait, but he's hot and unless he's a bit tuckered out I don't usually get the fox trot out of him.
So that's the history, now my question. I know there are some registries, such as one of the warmblood association where if your horse gets enough points in an event they can be registered. Is there any other registry's based on merit that are more western based?? Right now he's in training for endurance and barrels. Thanks!
