AHQHR Registration Checklist

Prior to beginning AHQHR’s simple online registration process, please review the following checklist to make sure your necessary documents are easily accessible for uploading. If you are unable to access your documents on your computer and would prefer to send them via USPS or email, please fill out the form to the best of your ability and click here for our mailing information. If you have any questions regarding registration, please call our office anytime at (254) 592-7827 and an AHQHR representative will be happy to assist you.

A Copy of the Registered Sire and/or Dam’s Papers

If you do not have these readily available to upload during the registration process, please proceed. AHQHR offers several convenient ways to help you acquire pedigree information including purchasing pedigrees from breed databases and performing in-depth pedigree research for our members.

Any and All Registration Numbers and Names

The more information you provide us for the registered horses in your horse’s pedigree, the better! Our registration certificates are highly detailed and we even offer an “Enhanced Pedigree” option which allows you to customize your pedigree with the D.O.B., color, height, and/or earnings of ancestors!

R

Photographs of Your Horse and/or Markings Form

You will be asked to upload 4 photographs of your horse taken from the front, back and both sides so we can clearly document your horse’s markings. You will also have the highly recommended option of adding a color photo to your pedigree. To proceed without photos, print and scan our Markings Form.

Completed and Signed Breeder’s Certificate

For foals under 12 months of age at the time of registration, we require a Breeder’s Certificate to be signed by both the stallion owner and the mare owner. You may also choose to proceed without the certificate, in which case your papers will be finalized as soon as it is received.
