If you could double or triple register, would you?

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.

In the stock horse world, the more registrations the better. Our AQHA/APHA mare's value is more than it would be otherwise, especially because she is a solid. My filly is registered with APHA/PtHA/NSBA. I don't know much about Welsh/Arabians, but it couldn't hurt as long as you can afford it and the association isn't a "bunk" one.

in the off event you wanted to breed or sell, being a registered half Arab, would make her more marketable. I would think even more so than a half welsh registry.

Thank you, yes that is what I was thinking as far as registering with AHA, it is a large registry, much larger than the Welsh Society, and she'd be potentially marketed to a larger group of people vs just Welsh.

I am a QH person myself, so I understand that AQHA/APHA double registered horses would be worth a bit more than either, they'd also be marketed to both sides, not just QH people, and not just Paint people but both, so the market is much larger. That is what I want. I'm not planning on selling her, but as I can't predict the future, I think going ahead and getting her registered with AHA would be in her best interest, as well as mine, as I then have more opportunities to show as well.

What about the smaller unknown registries? Waste of time and money?

I would definitely register her Half-Arab. I was not an Arab person but I bought a half-Arab and I'm so excited to be able to take her to the Arab shows in the future.
