They do NOT allow draft horses into this registry, it is quite a bit more respected than what you think. Although ultimatley it is made up of MANY different warmblood breeds.... as such is the Canadian Warmblood society, and the Canadian Sport Horse registry.
There is also the American Warmblood Society, or AWS. This is the one with all of the controversy surrounding it, as it isn't really a 'breed registry' but is in fact based on performance. And yes, draft and draft X's are allowed into this one, although they do have some standards and inspection guidlines. But not to the standard of the AWR.
There are also a large # of folks out there with draft/tb X whatever that call their horses American Warmbloods when in fact all they are in my eyes are draft X's.
I think maybe they should reclassify that type of horse as a draft sporthorse to avoid all of this confusion. But that will never happen!!
Exactly, my trainer had her old mare inspected for registration with the AWR and she passed as a premium mare. She definitely had the warmblood look, at least in my opinion.


Here is a picture of her at her inspection.

Before anyone bashes any registry they really need to understand what it stands for and if it does not "fit" their requirements then saying negative things about it, becomes what is called breed snobbery.

There is an excellent thread about some inspections that were held recently and the percections from those inspections. A read of it should be enlightening.

I've just had the time to read the post, posted by cheeky and find it quite offending. Another one of those general statements that is targeted to draft cross horse owners.

Part of the problem stemmed from the fact that a lot of PMU farms in north america were labelling their draft crosses as American Warmbloods-and consequently, a lot of people bought these horses, expecting them to be registered with the AWR.
(because by the truest sense of the word, a warmblood is a mix of a coldblood and a hotblooded horse...which is what the PMU horses were. But obviously in today's world, the term warmblood means something entirely different)

Now, I believe that the AWS can register and approve draft horses. Some people seem to believe that that means that every little nag can be registered by them. But if they are run even remotely close to any other breed registry, I would imagine that they are quite strict in their judging. They just happen to believe that an influx of breeds other then warmbloods and thoroughbreds are needed to create a better horse.

I did too as I have an AWS horse and he has not a speck of draft in him. I couldn't get him registered in his birth registry for the same reasons the Cheeky is concerned about...measurements.

I found the AWR too expensive and the people to contact rude so went with the AWS. I have lots of medals ( gold silver and bronze) as well as two year end titles from the AWS so I obviously made the right choice.

....so do we like these horses, in general? I found a horse under AW category, but called Clydesdale/Morgan in the actual ad, and I'm seriously thinking about buying him. Here is what he looks like:




What do you guys think?

I'm still working on making contact with the seller, and I'm going to see if I can get videos, etc.[/img]
