My question is, would you do it if your horse was eligible for double or even triple registration? Would you look at a horse that is double or triple registered over one registered with only one registry (or none) if both horses were everything you were looking for besides registration status?
I'm debating whether I should register my Welsh/Arab filly with the AHA as half Arabian. She is currently registered half Welsh with the Welsh Society. The reason I am debating this is purely for show opportunities/future breeding possibilities if she can prove herself. She has superb Welsh bloodlines. Part of me is thinking it may be overkill, but the other part is saying, if down the road I sell her, her new owners would have more opportunities with her, which would make her easier to market, especially to the many who show the Arabian circuit.
Then she is also eligible for registration with the American Welara Pony Registry. I'm still researching what they offer as far as showing, and what type of exposure they have throughout the country vs AHA and Welsh Society, which I think are much much bigger.
What would you do? My main concern is really her future. I want her to be appealing to the most possible people to ensure she has a future should I ever need to sell her, or those people sell her, and so on.
