I was looking up her siblings and got confused, wondering why some were listed as Oldenburgs, when Devon Heir is a Hanoverian.
If you look up Devon heir he is approved --: Hanoverian Verband, American Hanoverian Society, ISR/Oldenburg North America.
This explains why most are Oldenburg.
It is very very hard to get approval in the Hanoverian registry and the ISR is very much easier.
Now as far as your filly the problem is the dam of your horse which I ASSUME was never approved in any WB registry and while a REGISTERED TB ( with JC papers) can go and be inspected it probably was not done.
So that leaves your filly with less options. You can go to the ISR and if approved will probably go in the lowest mare book and you will have to breed up.
You can also go to the AWR/AWS and RPSI
The situation you are in is so typical and shows the reason why NA will never have a WB unique to us.
