I just bought an 8 year old Holsteiner mare, but she isn't registered. The woman who bread her just never got around to doing it. I know both her parents were Holsteiners though. If it is possible, what association(s) could i register her with? Whats the process of registration? Thanks for reading this!

Do you know both of her parents registered names? could you ask the previous owner for that? does the previous owner have the paper work for it even though she never got around to doing so?

Just so you know when writing letters to the breeders. Bread is that doughy stuff you eat. They bred her, not bread her.

You will most likely need DNA samples from both parents along with copies of their pedigree papers, and DNA from your mare to send to the breed society, for them to be able to issue you with paper work.

The first thing is to find out if the mare's parents were registered.

If they were, you'll need their registration names (and possibly numbers) as well as the name of the association where they were registered.

Once you have all that, you can contact the registry and see what they require in order to get your mare registered.

At 8 y/o, even if you can get all the DNA information and paperwork together, it's going to be fairly expensive to register her. That is, if they don't have a cut off registration age. Some associations do.
