    Talking Bravo Scott Hassler- BANG on- again!

    I was thrilled to read Scott's piece in this weeks Chronicle. He discusses the necessity of registering your horses, and makes his case at several different levels.

    In my breed, it is a sad truth that breeders will, far too often, sell horses without their papers- quite intentionally. They will have a dealer/broker pick up a load, and they simply do not the world to know that their stud produced that horse. Unfortunately, these are the horses who will make superb sport horses, many times, and YES, we would like them to have their identity intact.

    You never know what that backward foal might grow up to be, so, regardless of bloodline or preferred registry- please remember that this is your horses "birth certificate"- that will, for their whole life, let people know who they are, and where they came from.

    And BRAVO Scott- another honest and frank assessment of an issue that crosses many lines.

    In no particular order of importance...

    He states that it is important to register a foal- even if you plan on keeping that horse forever- so that you can make sure that the horse is eligible for programs/competitions that you may not contemplate at the time the foal is born.

    It helps to track the performance of particular bloodlines, to see what is going into sport horse bloodlines- I believe he is referring, somewhat, to the idea of tracking via database, ultimately.

    Breeder recognition- BIG point!

    And, it safeguards the future of the horse. I am really on board with that one!

    Not so sure about the article. It's about breed registration papers but he mentions the IHF as an example, saying the horse is not eligible unless registered. But in the case of the IHF there is no requirement for breed papers. The stallion has to be nominated in order for the foal to participate. No breed papers required, just IHF recording. The IJF also requires the stallion to be nominated but you don't need breed registry papers to participate.

    I think we have discussed in other threads that papers do nothing to track performance horses. And there have been lots of threads discussing the premise that papers do nothing to stop horses from going to slaughter.

    I'm all for giving the breeder credit. But I think the article was more about giving credit to the breed organization than anything else.

    Equibrit - is that common for all registries? It can't be.
    When I registered my two with the CSHA, membership was $80, and registering a foal is an additional $80 and the DNA test was $50. Everything was under $250 by the time I was done-I don't see why you wouldn't register, quite honestly. It increased the value of the horse, imo, easier to track, ect.
    In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

    I haven't seen the article yet.

    Did he discuss the value of the Unique Equine Life Number? That is what will be useful to track data.

    Not only to track who the horse is but, importantly, to have a guarantee of birth date. As horses get older and change hands, they end up having elastic birth years.

    Scott is right on. And if you decide to breed, you need to factor in all the costs involved in breeding...from vet fees, stud fees...and yes, registration fees. It's just a part of the "business", even if you are doing it for yourself. If you plan to breed, you need to think about ALL the costs...registration is a part of the cost.

    I read that article thinking just the opposite, alas. Well, not opposite, but more like thinking that was all well and good for the dressage-sporthorse type, but how relevant is it for eventers, jumpers or hunters? I really think we have to solve the identity issue before registration will really make much of a difference, don't you? I can see how useful it is in disciplines where young horses are recognized by several systems (showing, inspections, etc.), but what about those disciplines where there's a lot of time between registration and recognition? That's where things break down, I suspect, and so why, while it's a good theory, it might not actually be as worthwhile in practice--not until there's a way to insure that a horse keeps its identity throughout its career (especially when it changes hands). Also, and as usual, his perspective always seems to backburner the existance of and important role played by the American Thoroughbred...

    Here's a small quote from the article:

    'This leads to rewards, feeling good about our programs and the ability to track how we are progressing. What a shame for a nice horse to be restricted from a program because he is not registered. In many cases again, the end result becomes upsetting to the owner of the horse or the new purchaser of the horse. '

    I can't think of any programs a hunter would be restricted from on the basis of 'breed papers'. Maybe he is referring to the All Breed awards, triangle trotters? If so, what he says is not relevant to Hunters and has little bearing on Jumpers.
    For Hunters the only recording needed is USEF and that's if you want points. Jumpers do require recording if a class has over x$ but again, no breed papers required.
    I don't think the FEH program requires breed papers either.
    So what programs is he talking about?

    So, in the case of the brilliant lady who bred the amazing Teddy, and anyone seeking a horse bred to have the jump and quality to be a hunter, or just plain jump, and be a jumper, you really do not think that knowing how they are bred- in the short, or long term makes a difference?

    If this is the case, you ought to stop advertising the relationship between horses, because, I mean, what the heck- can you prove it? And who cares?

    PTF - the AHS offers awards on hunter performance and for instance, this year the co- champion USEF hunter breeding champion was NOT listed for an AHS award because the breeder/owner of the filly did not file COP papers and did not register the foal, meaning the stallion owner got no recognition.

    I think that is a shame for the stallion owner - and for the AHS who cannot track the results of unregistered foals from AHS approved stallions. Yes, the USEF has those results, but depending on your point of view, it may not help in the promotion of US based breeding if foals are not registered, particularly for our desire (or mine at least) to establish hunter breeding in the US.

    Well, number one, you don't need a registry to prove bloodlines. # 2, how many of the registries are actually TRACKING performance? NONE. Yes, they have some year end awards that may or may not be accurate but the registries are not tied into the USEF and therefor don't know what horses in their own database are doing in sport. Heck, the euro registries here in the U.S. don't even share information between themselves.

    What we need is a registry that is designed around the U.S. sporthorse world - not the european one - that aids people in bringing horses to market economically, has an aggressive interest in tracking the horses in sport and shares that information and creates a branded image that pulls buyers to the product instead of sending them overseas.

    Is the sire/dam info listed with USEF and the breeder info?
    If so then the stallion owner got credit for a win in a larger pool of competitors than the limited AHS awards. Somehow the USEF award seems more important.
    Why would lack of breed registration deter recognition of American bred horses. Perhaps you are more interested in breed registry recognition?
    Does AHS really consider HB as a 'performance' division?
    One more question? How does AHS track performance ? Surely you don't mean that they have the USEF results files sent to them?

    PTF - I cannot answer your questions about how the AHS recognizes its awards - I suspect they do indeed find out from the USEF. As a breeder of Hanoverians, for the hunters, I would like to see ALL major awards that their registered stallions, registered mares and registered foals win. But that won't happen if one of those are not registered. So yes, I do care about the breed registry. The USEF is fine, I use it,I belong to it, but it's goals are not to promote Hanoverians, which is important to me.

    I have not received my Chronicle yet - I am on the last paper route apparently -

    The AHS awards program is for its members.

    The horse needs to have registration or COP papers from the AHS. The owners need to be current members and the division the horse is competing in needs to be registered with the AHS (each year).

    The awards chairman reviews the (online) USEF division rankings for the horses names that are signed up for those specific divisions.

    The horse 3dogs mentions is listed as an Oldenburg. It would not be eligible for the AHS awards.
