ARGH! Is there a Horse Association where you can...

Register a horse with un-registered parents?!

This is seriously cheesing me off hard core.

I am trying to register Dreamer so that i have proof of ownership and proof of existence on him. Here is the following Associations i looked at applying him with:

American Paint Horse Association:
LOL.. no way. Skippy! is out of REGISTERED APHA stock and they wouldn't accept him because his father didn't have DNA on file and i couldn't find him anywhere in these United States.

Spotted Saddle Horse Breeders and Exhibitors Association (SSHBEA):
Any horse born after January 1999 can not apply for registry unless one of the parents is registered in some sort of Association. What REALLY cheeses me off about this one.. Is Dreamer meets all the breed standards and criteria. He has the correct build for the breed, the gate, the stance, EVERYTHING.. but ZOMG NO REG. PARENTS STFU SKIPPY!... *grumps*

Pinto Horse Association of America:
This one had the most promise. Dreamer is all lit up, and an outcropping from a TWH/SSH.. but ZOMG NO REGISTRY because they only allow GELDINGS and MARES to be registered if the parents are not registered. And since i am not going to geld him for a while.. there goes that out the window.

Spotted Saddle Horse Association:
Just read into this one, and so far, it does not look good. I am requesting an information packet for this to dive further.

International Gemeric Horse Association:
This one also looks good, and prices seem reasonable.. but i dont have a printer for the forms x_x And i would need to send out a SASE x_x Blarg.. everyone else gives out info for free >_<

American Grade Horse Association:
This one seems good as well, and I am trying to get more info on it.

Is there any other association i should try? I sorely want this horse registered.. and i am very disturbed that there are foals out of Registered SSH parents that come out with terrible conformation and an awful gait, but are allowed into the Association without a hassle because of their parents. My horse on the other hand has AWESOME potential, and is what the breed stands for. UGGH..

Anyways, i swear i will stop griping.. any suggestions on what i should do? Or where i could get the horse legally in my name? I don't think that the Animal Control center dishes out Identification tags for horses.. and i know about microchiping.. but i would REALLY like something on a piece of paper with his name and mine on it.

Im a grumpy, grumpy girl ;;

No lineage needed, as far as I know. It's also has no breed specification.

IGHA was in my initial post too :) I like this association (sans its small pitfall.. i love free information, and this place doesn't hand out freebies!!)

I also found a Sabino horse registry and.. i must say, i had Sabino horses figured all wrong... Dreamer fits the category spot on.. (LOL no pun intended)

Thanks for the input Kristy! I'm glad you had a look at IGHA. I trust things more when people refer them, LOL!
