Showing unpapered, unregistered horses

My QH filly is both unpapered and unregistered. Is it still possible to show her? Is it even possible to register her?

Wait! I'll fix it....

I believe if you want to register her (wtih AQHA) you'll need to know her dam and sire and possibly even their registration numbers.
I'm not sure if there's another registry you can register with, but if there is, I'd want to know. I have a QH gelding and I dont have his papers (doubt I ever will) and I would just like him to be registered.

As for showing, you can show her, it just couldn't be any breed shows I believe.

I believe you can show any horse in an open show.

As for registering an unpapered horse, the chances are pretty slim if even possible. Try calling the AQHA in TX and ask.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Registering her really depends on her parents and whether or not they are registered or purebreds. As for showing, you can show any horse you want. You run into issues if you enter certain hunter A classes but even at that point there are ways to qualify and enter those anyways.

Why do you want to register her?

i think that there is a grade registry out there...although you still would not be able to show in breed shows, maybe up to regional level stuff with some disciplines, but not breed shows

you could show open shows or 4-H... you just couldnt do breed shows

It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Yeah, the AQHA will not register a horse without proof of lineage and they also require a dna typing I think. Too many people claiming their horses were bred a certain way when they weren't. You can find open shows that will accept any breed or you could go for a specific discipline and show there; NRHA, NBRA, etc. I don't think they require papers but I'm not sure.
