IGHA? Anyone heard of it?

I want to register my grade pony just for the sake of doing it (my horse is registered with AQHA), and I wasn't sure how. First thing that came up on the google search was IGHA, International Generic Horse Association. Anyone heard of this? Or have any other suggestions for registering him?

I suppose it just boils down to me wanting to have a "registered" name and a "barn" name for him ;)

You don't have to pay someone else to give you those papers if all you want is a registered/show/full name. You can make your own :)
We did with our rabbits, we started our own pedigree and everything.

You just take the blank papers and costomise them in Paintshop.
Like, download the registration papers, and costomise them. Get rid of the registry name, fill them out like you would if you were going to send them in, and them print them out intead.

Somehow the "International Generic Horse Association" doesn't sound very prestigious. I think I would do what GrayRay suggested and just give him a full name and a barn name.

I went through the same thing with my foal Zane. He's a QH/Fox Trotter cross. I call him Zane, but if I ever wanted him to sound more proper, I would call him Zane Gray. I thought about registering him with a pleasure gaited horse registry, if he shows gait, but then I thought, who the heck has ever heard of the gaited pleasure horse registry? It's not like I'm going to breed him or anything (he's a gelding). So why register with a registry that is not taken seriously? All they are doing is taking your money and giving you a piece of paper in return.

My Mustang John is another good example. The last owner just called him John, so that's what I call him too, but on some of his paperwork that came with him, such as health papers, his name is listed as John Henry.

So I don't think you need registration papers just to give your pony a real name. Just have fun with it. At a show, no one is going to be none-the-wiser when his name is called out in the results if he is registered or not.
