Well an update of sorts. I contacted the following registries to see if she was eligible to be inspected by them, with the following results:
Westfalen - no reply
Selle Francais - no reply
Hanoverian - no reply
RPSI/Zweibrucker - no reply
Zangersheide - no reply
Holsteiner - eligible, video inspection available, nearest physical inspection in my state about 7 hours away and no dates planned yet this year.
Oldenburg - eligible, 4 inspection dates planned in my state, three of them not far away.
KWPN - eligible, one inspection about 5 hours away.
…And now I understand why a lot of horses are reg Old NA around here!
Can anyone say if I should make a special effort to try and get her inspected KWPN or Holst, or just go with OldNA? (Bearing in mind that I hope her breeding years are far away and I don’t have any stallions in mind)
Also once a mare is inspected, do you have to pay annual fees to keep her up to date until you breed? (ie can I get her inspected then go away and carry on with life until I choose to breed, or would I need to get her re-inspected at a later date if my membership lapsed?
OldNA allows you to add a mare into their MMB without inspection for a fee… uh… what if she was a conformational disaster zone? That doesn’t speak well of their book, surely?
