Speak to the stallion owner and your mare's registry.
Basically, the horse with partbred papers is eligible for the same PERFORMANCE incentives as a purebred. How is that so horrible? I think it's a great way to get horses out there competing, and, no, they cannot be inspected into the studbooks, but why should they be? That would defeat the purpose of keeping the breed a breed.
If you are breeding for a performance prospect, then not such a big deal. If it's a colt, most likely it will be gelded anyway. It appears that the CSHA will allow you to register the foal anyway, even though Tzigane is not "approved" with them: • One or both parents must have CSHA breeding approval. If it is the sire, then he must have a stallion license for the year of conception. Complete the “Registration Application” and see fee schedule attached.
• DNA hair samples must be submitted for all offspring . Please forward your pulled hairs attached to the DNA form to Canadian Sport Horse Association for each horse. Please insert the folded form containing the hair into a separate envelope for each horse to avoid cross contamination.
O If both sire and dam have been approved as breeding stock with the CSHA check full parentage verification
o If only one parent (sire or dam) have been approved as breeding stock with the CSHA check check Parentage Verification – Sire OR Parentage Verification – Dam depending on which one is the CSHA approved parent.
• 4 colour photos must be supplied showing four sides of the horse for verification of markings. Digital photos can be emailed provided name and owner clearly marked with each photo in email.
• A Certificate of Service (breeding certificate) signed by the stallion owner must accompany the registration indicating the exact dates that the sire serviced the dam.
• For horses with one CSH approved parent - please supply proof of ownership of the dam and proof of her pedigree (lineage) if she is the non-CSHA parent. If the sire is the non-CSHA parent, please supply proof of his pedigree (lineage) and proof that the horse is owned by the person signing the Certificate of Service (breeding certificate). A copy of breed of origin papers is the best proof of pedigree (lineage)
• Owners must have a current annual CSHA membership – see Fee Schedule.
• Fees are payable by either cheque, Visa or MasterCard.
It doesn't say "partbred papers" or anything of the like. So, theoretically, as long as you can verify parentage that the covering stallion is an "approved" breed (not necessarily approved CSHA, then the offspring will be eligible for studbook approval at a later date regardless of the sires' CSHA approval status. Interestingly, the Trakehner stallion "Humble GS" is CSHA approved but has NOT been presented or approved with the ATA...So, I would be willing to bet that the CSHA would "approve" Tzigane "sight unseen" like they apparently did with the Trakehner Verband approved Hope of Heaven, also standing at Galten Farms. From the CSHA website: SIGHT UNSEEN APPROVAL
The CSHA will consider stallions for approval provided the stallion has permanent breeding approval, based on conformation and performance testing with an accepted registry.
The following is a list of the required documents:
· Application Form
· Copy of Registration papers indicating Full Breeding Approval
· Copy of Full pedigree
· DNA report for Stallion
· Performance Record
· Proof of Ownership
· Membership Application
· Payment of applicable fees
Stallions approved ‘sight unseen’ on the merit of their stallion performance test are given a ‘Bronze Premium’ status. Application for premium upgrade may be made with proof of completing required performance criteria.
Might be worth it to you, OP, as a mare owner to look into that for your foal, if the CSHA is the way you want to go.
