doesn't the AWS imply the horse is a warmblood of some type? i have no idea anything about the horse in question here so if it is a "warmbood" in that definition then go for it. but otherwise, i agree with AB - do you NEED to have this horse registered?

Any horse can be registered in the AWS as long as its not a full hot blooded or full cold blooded horse.

Spyder, where exactly does AB live?

OP, agree with the other posters.. what is the reason for needing your horse registered? Are you showing and need to have him registered? That might help us in determining which registries to look for.

Hey if the OP wishes to register her horse then why not? The grade horse registry might be one solution. It is at least proof of identification if the horse should be lost or stolen and on a broader scale it would help keep track of lineages (not that I am suggesting a breeding program, don't get your knickers in a knot people).

Here is the website:

American Grade Horse Registry (AGHR)

I don't honestly know how legit the registry is but it may be worth looking in to.

Additionally, if you ever wished to sell the horse on, it may be an attribute in the eyes of a potential buyer, regardless of if the papers serve an actual purpose or not.

Oh and I think AB used to rule Munchkin country and once had a close run in with a falling house from Kansas

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Really? That is not much of a registry then is it? Any old mutt can apply?

But I did live in munchkin land for a bit. I got a solo in our school play of the Wizard of Oz as a munchkin (it was 7th grade and most of the boys still sang soprano, they needed someone with a lower voice).

Nothing wrong with a grade horse... if you are looking for id purposes get the horse microchipped or branded.

I totally agree! Great point on the chipping or branding.

Better way to id than a piece of paper imo...I have two grade horses and can't afford a brand so had them microchipped.

While any HORSE ( we are not talking dogs here) can apply not everyone can pass the inspection requirements.

Also there is more to having papers, for certain registries give benefits to its members that a non member cannot have access to.

Just that some people are very short sighted....and for that well their loss.

Much like this forum, horse people generally enjoy the company of other horse people. I own a grade mare right now and I have to admit I kind of miss the feeling of being part of AQHA or the Jocky Club. Did I go to meetings? I didn't even show. It was just fun to belong. Microchipping may be fine, as is branding, but maybe those of us with "mutts" would like to have a that sense of belonging as well. Yes, sometimes joining a registry is that something that gives us the feeling we are looking for. The op said it was for identification, yes I saw that and don't need it pointed out, but I was just putting in my two cents about why someone with a grade would like to be registered.

I'll be showing her and selling her. Thats why i want papers. When you sell a horse around here with papers it bumps the price purely because this area has nothing but backyard nags.
