Registry questions

I'm looking to register my TWHxMFT yearling colt (soon to be gelding). He's a graying Tobiano. Tobiano dam and graying black sire. Both parents are purebreds, papered with their proper registries.


Right now I'm looking at:
Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry
Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders & Exhibitors Association


I'll be hunting for more tomorrow (it's 3:30AM) but I was hoping someone would have some info on reputable registries?

Since he'll be a gelding, papers don't help much, but if I ever go to sell him, people will be a heck of a lot more interested if I can show who he came from. Plus I think there kinda fun, being able to trance ancestries

The registries you mentioned don't really enhance his value and are simply papers to prove who he is and who owns him.

AWS or AWR papers would increase his value and also allow him to compete with possible rewards ( yearly awards) that are given out each year by these registries.

Do they accept gaited horses? I want to get him registered with someone reputable for the 'this is who he is, what he is, and who he belongs too'. Plus it'd look better at shows, if I do decide to show him in halter or something.

The owners (friends of mine) kept telling me that he can't be registered since he's a cross, etc. etc. and are selling him to me as such (unregisterable accident stud colt) I figured if Divo (a cross) can be registered, theres certainly gotta be something out there for the little guy.

A lot will depend on if the horse can do a true trot. If he can then go for it. The cross actually will probably help him in the registries I mentioned and I would try the AWS over the AWR since the AWS has a bit more focus on preformance.

Alright, I'll be inquiring further as to if he's eligible for registration at:
Pleasure Saddle Horse Registry
Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders & Exhibitors Association
American Warmblood Society
Performance Horse Registry
Pinto Horse Association

I'm hoping to get yes/no answers, then narrow it down from there. I'm kinda liking the PHR and AWS, they seem very reputable and not some backyard woo-hoo registry. I'd rather pay more and get good papers on him, then pay $20 bucks for something that I could easily print out on my computer.

I don't know if AWS would be a good match. If your horse is gaited then I am guessing that you do not do one of the 3 Olympic sports or driving? Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that he may not be able to. One of the best dressage horses I have ever worked with was half TWH, but most people don't look at a gaited horse and say "eventer for sure".
The AWS is focused on horses doing one of these sports. In fact part of the registration is either having a show record in one of these or completed an AWS inspection with good score. To get a good score you must deminstate the horse's movement and jumping ability.

I am currently going through the inspection process with my pony mare through NASPR. It is not a cheap process, I think we are up to about $500 and not finished yet. If you are just wanting a certificate to varify you horse's pedigree then one of the 'send in your info and give us some money' registrys may be what you are after.

I looked at the other registries you were looking at and the Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association looks more like what you would be looking for. The reason I am saying this is they are looking for exactly the type of horse you have described a gaited tobiano pleasure horse.

I am going to respectfully disagree with Spyder. I think this registry would add value to him. They not only take your word for it and take your money, but also do an inspection. This indicates to me that they are not just looking for any backyard horse that you send in money for, but are actually looking to registar quailty horses. They also have a number of shows across the county that you or someone who may buy your horse in future could show in.

Please note that I qualified my suggestion.
