    Question Registries.

    Hey everyone!

    I am looking to register my mare with some form of association. She does not have any papers. I do not know her lineage, and quite frankly her true breed. I was wondering if I could register her with AWR (American Warmblood Registration, I think), or perhaps a local hunter reg.? Does anybody know of any? Thanks.

    You can register any horse with the Virginia Horse Show Association, I think the cost is $25.00

    As for the warmblood associations I would probably post something in the dressage section as most of them are warmblood owners. You CAN register a horse with that association but there is a system of tests and I don't fully understand the process, I do know though that the horse will need to be exceptional. Another thought is the Virginia Pony Breeders Association but that would only be if you bred for a pony and then you would have to find out what the terms are....

    Um.... if you do not know her lineage and you do not have a specific registry in mind then ...um.... what exactly does registering her do?

    I believe she is doing the research before making any final breeding decisions.

    Sorry, I guess I still do not understand.

    Even if you find a registry that will take a horse with totally unknown lineage, what exactly does it do for you? You still have a horse with unknown lineage.

    Thank you! I will look into it.

    I want to provide the image that I am a respectable horse owner, and do the best to "better" my horse with the limited resources I have.

    So a grade horse becomes a not grade horse if you can find a registry that will accept a grade horse?


    Grin - we keep posting at the same time.

    May I suggest The Virginia Jumping Horse Association. I happen to be president, chairman of the board and head judge. The cost is $149.99 but we have stickers and decals (hats are on backorder)!

    Kevin, I was going to suggest your registry in one of my above posts but I was not sure you still were running it.
