The WESTERN HORSE REGISTRY is a central registry for all Western Breed Horses ~ Paint Horse, Quarter Horse, Appaloosa and their derivatives (registered &/- foundation stock). EXCLUDING HYPP &/- HERDA positive or carrier horses.
The WESTERN HORSE REGISTRY is for all those people who breed Western Horses for Rodeo, Cutting, Reining, Campdrafting, Polo, Pleasure Riding, Pony Club, English Events.. etc; and are tired of the high charges involved with registering their horses. Then there are all those owners who have neglected to register their horses for one reason or another and now can't justify the expense and penalty fees to do it now. If you own an unregistered horse that has a distinct WESTERN HORSE conformation - it may be eligable for foundation registration, pending classification.
Unless you are showing at specific breed show's every other weekend, you do not see much return on your investment. The Western Horse Registry is a more economical option. This site also features an ONLINE STUD BOOK that will grow to include every horse in an individual horses pedigree, back as far as is possible to trace.
