Understanding registrys. Correct me if I'm wrong...

I am under the assumption, that if I have a horse with no papers, I am unable to register him. Correct?

I understand that I can register Nelson under the PHA, but I am assuming that I can not register himin somthing like AQHA or the like. Right?

What is the benefit of having a registered _________ (APHA, AQHA, ect)?

What would be the benefit of registering him in somthing like PHA? Any, or is it just superficial?

I have 2 registered and 1 horse without papers (he's registered but i have NO info on him, so in my eyes, he's not registered)

The benefits of being registered is being able to track owners, seeing the registered name, birthdate, their dam/sire and any possible disease that might be in their pedigree. Also, you'd be able to show in Breed shows.

I'm unsure of what PHA is, so I cannot comment on that.
But there are registries where you can register a horse (and it isn't breed related). I'm going to register my quarter horse with the Performance Horse Registry soon. They accept any and all breeds.

sorry i couldn't have been of more help.
