Please send the original ATA registration certificate (if applicable) with appropriate fees – (if your horse is approved for breeding, this certificate will be cancelled and a new one will be issued putting your newly approved horse into the proper division of the registry).
If your horse is a Thoroughbred, Arabian, or Shagya Arabian, please submit a notarized or certified copy of their original certificate of registration. Please submit 4 generation pedigree and race record (if applicable) for Thoroughbreds. Arabian or Arab-Trakehner owners – please read the information about the Genetic Testing Requrements here.
All horses approved for breeding must have their DNA on file before we can release their new certificate of registration reflecting Stud Book status. DNA kits can be ordered online for $60.00.
After your horse is inspected you will receive the inspector’s score sheet and inspection report from the ATA office.
The American Trakehner Association prohibits a number of substances in horses that are being inspected for the Official Studbook or Preliminary Stud Book. Prohibited substances include stimulants, depressants, tranquilizers, internal or local anesthetics (pain-killers), non-steroidal anti-inflammatory products, anabolic steroids, or any drug or drug metabolite which might affect the performance or the temperament of a horse. Testing cost is at ATA expense. At the discretion of the Inspection Committee, the ATA may request a licensed veterinarian to collect blood and/or urine samples from any horse for the purpose of testing for prohibited substances by a laboratory of the ATA’s choosing. Samples may be taken at the inspection site and testing cost is an ATA expense. All samples drawn will be the property of the ATA. Owners of horses coming to an ATA inspection grant permission for the collection of blood and/or urine samples from any horse which the Inspection Committee wishes to test. Horses found to have the presence of any prohibited substance within their system may be denied entry into the ATA stud book.
You may call a credit card into the ATA Office, request an invoice or, if you prefer, you can print this form and send it with a check to the address on the bottom of this form. Note: Using a credit card will add a $5 transaction fee to our standard fees.
