Corporate Regulations of the
American Trakehner Association, Inc.

(a Unification of the NATA and the ATA)
(As Amended November 3, 2000)

Article I.   Breeding and Registration Goal

The Association is committed to adhere to the highly selective breeding standards practiced in Trakehnen, East Prussia, and continued in Germany by the Trakehner Verband in the breeding of the horse of Trakehner origin. By practicing these standards the Association desires to encourage the development of a performing horse of beauty and harmony, great endurance, mental and physical balance, and possessing an excellent character.

Article II.   General Registration Standards

§1. Obedience, willingness to work and elegant, flowing and elastic movements are the dominant characteristics of the Trakehner breed.

§2. Small noble heads are desirable as they show nerve and energy. The neck should be set properly and of significant length. Withers should be pronounced clearly and visible, the shoulder should be long and sloping and the back should be of medium length. The croup should be long, muscular and of oval shape. A deep and wide rib cage should be connected to a substantial frame, representing a horizontal rectangle (in contrast to the square frame of the Thoroughbred) with large joints.

§3. The recommended minimum size requirements for stallions as two and one-half-year olds are 15.3 hands in height with a heart girth of 72 inches and a cannon bone of 7.5 inches.

§4. The recommended minimum size requirements for mares are 15.1 hands in height with a heart girth of 70 inches and a cannon bone which approaches 7.5 inches.

  3. The guidelines specified in (2) above shall be reviewed from time to time by the Board of Trustees and amendments proposed to the membership if warranted in the interest of the breed.
  4. Thoroughbred, Arabian, Anglo-Arab, Anglo-Trakehner or Arab-Trakehner mares who have produced two horses of either sex that have met any of the performance standards specified in (2) above are themselves considered to have met the above requirements.

§3. Qualification for entry into the Official Stud Book under §§1 and 2 of this Article must be verified based upon the horse's original registration certificate, veterinarian certificates in the case of colts, and personal inspection by a member or members of the Inspection Committee.

§4. (a) All Trakehner colts registered with the Association in accordance with Articles III and IV of Part II of these regulations by an approved Trakehner stallion out of an approved Trakehner mare, if intended as a breeding stallion, must be presented at the minimum age of two years, to an inspection team selected by the Board of Trustees for the inspection and approval of the colt as a breeding stallion. Upon approval thereof, the colt, if owned by an active member of the Association, shall be eligible for transfer to the Official Stud Book of the Association and an appropriate certificate of registration will be issued certifying the stallion as an approved breeding stallion of the Association.

(b) Stallions to be presented for approval as breeding stallions under this section shall be presented to the inspection team at a central location to be determined at the discretion of the Board of Trustees. However, in the case of obvious hardship the inspection may, upon approval by a majority of the Board of Trustees, be conducted at a location convenient to the stallion owner and at the stallion owner's expense.

(c) Within two years from the approval, or by the end of the competition year in which he reaches his sixth birthday, whichever is later, the stallion must complete a USCTA or CEF sanctioned three-phase combined training event at Novice (USCTA) or Pre-Training (CEF) level if the test is taken before he is six years old; or a USCTA or CEF sanctioned three-phase combined training event at the Training level or above for stallions six years old and older, with a statement to that effect signed by the event secretary or chief judge to be furnished to the Association on a form provided for that purpose by the Association. Upon completion of this requirement, the approval is final. However, if the foals of the stallion indicate that the stallion is passing serious genetic defects, the Registration Committee may recommend to the Board of Trustees that the stallion be disapproved as a breeding stallion at which time the Board of Trustees may then withdraw the previously granted approved breeding status upon a two-thirds vote. Foals from stallions not meeting final approval conceived before approval is withdrawn shall remain, or be, eligible under these regulations for registration in the Official Registry Book.

§5. Stallions or mares presented to the Inspection Committee for transfer to the Official Stud Book or the Preliminary Stud Book and not approved may be re-inspected at a future inspection upon application and payment of the required fee by the then owner of the stallion or mare.

  3. the foal must be begotten and gestated under one of the conditions outlined in §§ 2 to 6 of this Article.

§2. Natural Cover. If a mare is pasture bred, it must be ensured that only one stallion has access to her during any one heat period.

§3. On-Premise Artificial Insemination With Fresh Semen.

  1. If two or more stallions of breeding age are on the premises, all semen shall be properly identified between collection and insemination.

§4. Transported Fresh Semen.

  1. Prior to foaling, any mare covered by transported semen must be genetically typed, at the mare owner's expense, by an approved laboratory under contract to the Association. The resulting foal must also be genetically typed at the owner's expense and is eligible for registration only if it unquestionably qualifies as the offspring of its alleged sire and dam.
  2. All semen shipments must be accompanied by a certificate from the stallion owner/agent as specified in Part II, Article XIII, of these Corporate Regulations.

§5. Frozen Semen.

  1. Prior to foaling, any mare covered by frozen semen must be genetically typed, at the mare owner's expense, by an approved laboratory under contract to the Association.

  2. All shipments of frozen semen must be accompanied by a certificate from the stallion owner/agent or the owner of the semen, as specified in Part II, Article XIII, of these Corporate Regulations.
  3. Frozen semen breedings are subject to all of the requirements made for transported fresh semen in §4 (a), (b), and (c) of this Article XI regardless of where the frozen semen is dispensed.
  4. If the owner of an approved or accepted stallion not standing, or never having stood, in North America desires, he may register his stallion in the Official Stud Book of the Association. In that case, the owner, or his North American agent, must be a member in good standing of the Association. The owner or agent must pay the same fees for the stallion and issue the same reports and certificates as the owners of stallions standing in North America.
  5. Foals produced by frozen semen from approved or accepted stallions not standing in North America, or never having stood in North America during their lifetime, and not registered in the Official Stud Book of the Association are assessed the registration fees normally levied for imported horses.
  6. Owners of foals produced by imported frozen semen should contact the Association to determine whether the foal's sire is an ATA registered stallion, in which case their registration fee will be the same as for any other domestic horse, or whether he is not an ATA registered stallion, in which case their registration fee will be the same as that for an imported horse.

§6. Embryo Transfer

  3. all breeding and embryo transfer dates must be properly documented:

§7. Regardless of the method employed, a mare may not be covered by more than one stallion during any one heat period. If a mare is covered by more than one stallion within 45 days, genetic typing of the resulting foal and its dam shall be mandatory to determine the correct parentage. The genetic typing costs shall be borne by the owner of the foal applying for registration.

§8. Separation of fillies and colts at the age of eleven months is mandatory.

§9. All stallions must be genetically typed by an approved laboratory under contract to the Association prior to being used for breeding purposes and an official copy of the official genetic type report shall be filed with the Association.

§10. If, in the opinion of the Registration Committee, there is justifiable cause to question the parentage of a foal, the Committee may require the foal, sire and dam to be genetically typed. The results of this test, together with such other information as may be available, may be taken into consideration by the Committee in its determination of the foal's parentage and registration.

Article XII.  Stallion Breeding Report

§1. On or before January 31 of each year, the owner or lessee of each approved stallion registered with the Association, or the owner of frozen semen from an approved stallion registered with the Association, as the case might be, must submit a stallion breeding report on a form provided by the Association, together with the required fee, listing all mares bred to the stallion or with the stallion's semen, during the preceding calendar year, whether such mares were determined in foal or not.

§2. The stallion breeding report shall include the mare's registration number, the mare's registered name, the name and address of the owner, or lessee if applicable, at the time of service, and all breeding or shipment dates or dates of exposure as well as the method of breeding employed as specified in Article XI, §2 to 6 of this Part II. A separate report must be submitted for mares bred by transported fresh or frozen semen.

Article XVI.  Registration Procedure

§1. Before any horse eligible for registration shall be registered all transfers of the sire and dam must be completed.

§2. The owner of the horse to be registered shall execute an application for registration of the horse on a form provided without cost by the Association which shall be identified as "Application for Registration." The said application shall be accompanied by the required fee, and shall include the name, sex, color, markings, pictures and foaling date and the name, registration number and color of the sire and dam. Upon approval of the application by the Registration Committee an original certificate of registration shall be issued to the owner in either the Official Appendix Book, the Official Registry Book, the Preliminary Stud Book or the Official Stud Book. The certificate shall contain the same description of the animal as contained in the application form, appropriately identify the horse as registered in the Official Appendix Book, the Official Registry Book, the Preliminary Stud Book, or the Official Stud Book of the Association, and specify the registration number with the prefix "OAB," "ORB," "PSB," or "OSB" as the case may be.

§3. The owner of a horse which qualifies by breeding for registration in the Official Stud Book of the Association may make preliminary application for approval of the horse as a broodmare or breeding stallion on a form provided without cost by the Association which shall be identified as "Application for Breeding Approval" or "Nomination for Inspection." The application shall contain the same minimal information as required for the application for registration and be accompanied by the required fee and the original certificate of registration. Upon completion of processing of the application by the Registration Committee and approval after personal inspection by a member or members of the Inspection Committee, the Association shall issue to the owner of the horse a certificate of registration in the Official Stud Book. If transfer to the Official Stud Book is disapproved, the original certificate of registration in the Official Registry Book will be returned to the horse's owner with the appropriate endorsement.

§4. When the horse which is the subject of the application has been accepted for registration in either the Official Appendix Book, Official Registry Book, Preliminary Stud Book, or Official Stud Book and the completed certificate issued therefor, such registration shall be binding upon the Association and the person to whom issued may be deemed the owner unless and until clear and convincing evidence is adduced showing fraud or mistake in the application or issuance of the certificate of registration, or the ownership is properly transferred.

§5. The Association and its officers shall use diligence in securing true information in connection with the registration of any and all animals registered, but neither the Association nor its officers shall be answerable in damages for the issuance of any certificate of registration made in conformity with information supplied by the application for registration.

§6. A duplicate certificate of registration will be issued to the owner of record upon an application therefor accompanied by the required fee and affidavit explaining the loss of the original.

Article XVII.  Transfers

§1. When an animal is sold, the seller shall endorse in full and deliver to the buyer its certificate of registration and the buyer shall promptly forward said certificate and required fee to the Association.

§2. In order that the progeny of any animal may be registered, all transfers of ownership of such animal and dates of sales must be duly recorded.

§3. Whenever title to a registered animal passes to another by reason of incapacity of the owner, the Association may transfer the registration of such animal to the new owner upon order of a court of competent jurisdiction or other satisfactory proof of transfer of title.

Article XVIII.  Geldings

When a previously registered stallion is castrated, the certificate of registration, with the date of castration noted thereon, must be surrendered to the Association. An endorsement that the change has been noted in the records of the Association shall be placed upon the certificate of registration and the certificate, so endorsed, shall be returned to the owner of the horse.

Article XIX.  Death of a Registered Animal
