Beginning July 1, the Arabian Horse Association (AHA) will offer a discount on registration for horses 2 and older. Members who register their horses during this period, which ends December 31, 2013, will save $100 on purebred Arabian horse registration, paying only $250, and $40 on half-Arabian or Anglo-Arabian registration, paying only $75. A discount on registration has only been offered a handful of times in history.
By extending this offer, the Arabian Horse Association hopes to capture horses that have gone unregistered past the age of 2. By adding these horses to our records, the AHA continues the legacy of pedigree record keeping started thousands of years ago for Arabian horses.
“Registering your Arabian, half-Arabian and Anglo-Arabian connects them to their breed’s legacy–a very long-lasting, full and rich legacy. Every horse has a right to that connection,” said Debbie Fuentes, AHA Registrar and Sr. Director of Customer Service. “The discounted registration price allows owners to register their older horses and give them a connection to their lineage, raising the horse’s value and confirming their identity, which helps to ensure they have a better life.”
Registering horses ultimately provides a more thorough genetic picture for breeders and owners to produce the highest quality animals in the future. Registering your horse and transferring its ownership after sale is also helpful in keeping horses out of situations where their health and welfare is compromised.
For answers to registration questions, contact an AHA Customer Service Representative at (303) 696-4500. Horses eligible for this short-time discount must be 2 years of age or older and meet registration requirements. Visit www.ArabianHorses.org/registration for more information.
