I’d love some insight on how I could go about registering my new Holsteiner mare.
She is out of a mare registered with the Holsteiner Verband. However, I believe her sire is unapproved. He was sold out of country and I’ve been unable to track him down.
However, the sire’s parents were both registered with the Holsteiner Verband. He’s by Contender.
My mare is very well bred and truly a beautiful little filly, it seems criminal that I can’t register her with the AHHA. Does anyone know if there is a way I could get her approved even though her sire is not?
If the AHHA is not an option, do you think the American Warmblood Registry would take her? Is it even worth it to register her with a non-breed specific organization?
Any insight is much appreciated. I’ve already emailed the AHHA with more specific pedigree info, but I haven’t heard back from them yet.
