    Default WPSI Mare- What's that mean!?!

    I have recently acquired a Jockey Club registered TB mare. Along with her JC papers, I also received a WPSI Inspection sheet with her. As a non-breeder, I have NO idea what I am looking at. I have "scores" in several categories, and a total and average score. Also, a note saying she is in Mare Book I as a Premium Mare. What does all of this mean? Does it add significant value to her? Any explanation would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

    Do you mean RPSI?

    It doesn't add a ton of value because it's pretty easy to get, but it does save you the cost of having her inspected if you want to breed foals and register them with RPSI.

    Maybe a Polish registry?

    Although, premium mare awards are not easily given. We cherish the ones that we have. It is fairly easy to get a mare into a mare book with many of the registries, but not so easy to do so with a high score.

    Yes, I agree that it is probably RPSI as it does sound like their score sheet. The scores were given for her type, quality of conformation, correctness, walk, trot, canter, and overall impression. The value is in the cost of the inspection as well as the time, travel, etc. to present her.
