Purpose

A.  The National Show Horse Registry has been established in the best interest of the show horse industry for the promotion of the English-type horse.

B.  In addition, and of no less importance, it is the purpose of the NSHR to foster and promote the highest level of competition under rules which are fair, safe and honestly enforced.

C.  The most important element in this promotion and the reason for the existence of this horse is the amateur athlete - the amateur horseman.  The NSHR's highest goal is to make our sport available to more amateur sportsmen and women.

D.  In order to set the highest possible standards and the best environment for these amateur athletes and owners, the NSHR will concurrently produce, promote and regulate the best model for the amateur athlete in divisions for the professional horseman.

E.  These elements, the horse, the show environment, the amateur and the professional, are at all times to be considered as a whole in the development of the highest standards in our discipline, the sport of show horse competition.

 

The National Show Horse

The National Show Horse Registry (NSHR) was created to meet a growing need within the equine industry for beautiful show horses with athletic ability, for new excitement and incentives in the show ring and for a broader base for the show horse industry.

 

The overwhelming choice for this new breed was an animal that would combine the beauty, refinement and stamina of the Arabian with the size and high-stepping motion of the American Saddlebred. Since its beginning in 1982,  the NSHR has taken steps to make possible the employment of a variety of combinations of these two basic bloodlines to produce a breed that continues to surpass its own standards, the always exciting National Show Horse.

 

Founders of the NSHR were not satisfied just to create a registry for the new breed.  They also wanted to create a new atmosphere in the show ring in order to generate broader public appeal and to develop a prize money system that would make it financially rewarding for exhibitors to show their horses.

 

Show Ring Excitement

The National Show Horse Registry is dedicated to creating an atmosphere in the show ring that reflects the excitement created by the horses themselves.  New concepts and formats for the shows have been combined with a prize money system to create new enthusiasm for spectators and exhibitors.

 

The NSHR has committed itself to providing opportunities for all breeders to profit from showing their horses.  The prize money system, created by the NSHR, is designed to allow exhibitors a chance to more than offset the expenses associated with owning and showing a horse.

 

The NSHR guarantees to offer a minimum of 40% of all registration fees for any year in prize money during the next year's show season.  That guarantee has resulted in owners of NSHR registered horses earning more money in the show ring than has ever been available through a registry.

Since 1986, more than 160 hard working youth Equitation riders have won more than $380,000 in College Scholarships.  The National Show Horse Registry was the first to develop a performance based scholarship competition.

 

A Broader Base for Show Horses

In addition to the opportunity to win money in the show ring, the NSHR provides breeders with new marketing opportunities.

 

Owners of Arabian or Saddlebred mares can often produce foals through the NSHR that are not only of better quality but also of greater market value than through a purebred breeding program.

 

Many fans have one or more Arabian or Saddlebred mares who have outstanding bloodlines and good conformation, yet do not consistently produce superior quality Arabian or Saddlebred foals.  These same mares often produce top quality National Show Horses that can provide the breeder with a greater return on his investment.

 

New Opportunities

The NSHR offers established breeders and newcomers to the show horse world an opportunity to participate in the creation of a new breed and to establish themselves in a favorable position within the show horse world.  Whether one decides to devote himself exclusively to National Show Horses or include them as a part of his overall horse program, the National Show Horse can be an exciting and profitable venture.

 

Breed Standard

The National Show Horse shall strive to produce an athletic horse which retains size, beauty and refinement. Specifically, the following traits are desirable:

 

A.  Motion.  Balanced and obvious power from the hindquarters flowing into an elevated front end, the front legs showing both flexion and extension;

B.  Neck.  Very long, set high on the shoulder and relatively upright with fine throatlatch.  The neck should be shapely but without a pronounced crest;

C.  Head.  Relatively small, short and refined with large eyes and small, well placed ears and a straight or slightly concave profile (a "Roman nosed" or convex profile is not desirable);

D.  Pronounced withers and a very deep and well laid back shoulder;

E.  Proportionately short back closely coupled with a long hip and relatively level top line (moderately sloping croup not to be penalized);

F.  Legs.  Correct from all angles with long forearms and short cannon bones in front and long, well angled pasterns front and rear;

G.  Refinement of bone but not lacking in substance, especially in the chest, girth, shoulder and hip;

H.  A relatively high set tail, natural and flowing;

I.  When observed at rest or in motion, the horse must exhibit a natural presence and, when animated, extreme brilliance.  The horse must exhibit high carriage when showing or relaxed.

4.  Effective with foals born in 1999, all mares must have blood type/DNA information on file with the NSHR prior to registration of foals.

 

B. Rebreeding to a Different Stallion

Those mares not involved as donor mares in an embryo transfer program are required to wait 42 days before being bred to a different stallion.

 

C. Breeder of Record

The breeder of a horse is the owner of the dam at the time of service.  Individuals using leased mares in the production of National Show Horses may be listed as the breeder of record by having the owner of the dam at the time of service complete the "Breeder Of Record" portion of an application for registration.

 

III.  Registration

Horses eligible for registration with the NSHR must be produced by one of the breeding combinations stated in Section II A. 1-3.

A.  Registration

1. A completed, original NSHR registration application must be submitted with the following:

a.  Payment in full of applicable, nonrefundable and non transferable registration fee in U.S. funds;

b.  Photocopy of registration papers for Arabian or Saddlebred dams.  Dam's registration papers must indicate that the applicant for registration of the horse owned the mare at the time of foaling.  If not, the transfer portion of the registration application must be completed.

c.  Blood type/DNA information for the dam must be on file with the NSHR for foals born subsequent to January 1, 1999.

2.  At least on owner of the horse to be registered must be a current member of the NSHR to apply for registration.

5.  Registration fees and deadlines.

(See Fee Schedule, Section XVI.) All dates are dates of postmark.  See General Policies (Section XV) for a definition of postmark.

6.  A registration certificate will be issued only when all applicable registration requirements have been met.

 

B.  Showing Requirement

No horse, eligible to be registered as a National Show Horse, may be entered or shown in NSHR approved classes until it has an official certificate of registration or confirmation letter.  However, that horse may be registered at the show prior to entry if an application is filled out and payment of the current applicable registration fee is made at the show secretary's office and is signed and dated by the show secretary.  Any prize money and/or points earned will not be awarded until registration is complete and a certificate of registration has been issued.  Prize money will be considered
forfeited if registration is not completed by NSHR fiscal year end of March 31st.

 

C.  Registration of Horses outside North America

Horses sired by stallions (see Section I.B.) residing outside North American may be registered as National Show Horses, provided that they meet current registration requirements (see Fee Schedule, Section XVI).

 

IV.  Breeding Methods

A.  Artificial Insemination 

This allows for producing NSHR eligible foals if performed in the presence of a licensed veterinarian or NSHR certified technician and in the presence of the mare owner or his agent.

 

Frozen Semen from a deceased or gelded stallion may be used indefinitely.

 

B.  Transported Semen (TS)

The National Show Horse Registry allows and recognizes for registration, horses produced by transported semen (TS).  The use of proper technology for shipping and using TS is the responsibility of the stallion and mare owner/agent; the National Show Horse Registry assumes no responsibility for either nor does it guarantee breeding success.  Breeding contracts are strictly between the mare and stallion owners.

 

Foals produced by TS must be blood typed/DNA prior to issuance of a Certificate of Registration.  Registration will only be made if the foal's blood type/DNA is in harmony with that of the alleged sire and dam.

 

C.  Embryo/Oocyte Transfer

Embryos/oocytes collected from a mare may be transferred to a recipient mare.   An embryo/oocyte must be transferred to a recipient mare within three calendar days of the collection from the donor mare.

1.  Foals resulting from embryo/oocyte transfer may be eligible for registration if the following requirements are met:

a.  A registration application has been completed, signed by the appropriate recorded owner(s) or agent, and mailed to the Registry; and

b.  The registration fee for has been paid.

c.  Foals produced by Embryo/Oocyte transfer must be blood typed/DNA prior to issuance of a Certificate of Registration.  Registration will only be made if the foal's blood type/DNA is in harmony with that of the alleged sire and dam.

2.  If the recorded owner of the donor mare sells the embryo/oocyte prior to the birth of the horse, written notice must accompany the registration application.  In that event, the Certificate of Registration will be issued in the recorded ownership of the purchaser.

3.  It will be the responsibility of the applicant to obtain the necessary blood/DNA samples from the donor mare.  If the donor mare is not blood typed/DNA, any resultant foal produced by embryo/oocyte transfer may be denied registration.

4.  Each transfer of an embryo/oocyte may occur either at the same location as recovery or the embryo/oocyte may be transported to another location for implantation. 

5.  When an embryo/oocyte transfer flush of the donor mare is completed, there is no waiting period when rebreeding to the same or a different stallion.  When an embryo/oocyte transfer flush of the donor mare is not completed, a 42 day waiting period must be observed when breeding to a different stallion.

6.  Restrictions:

a.  If the NSHR finds there are any questions of parentage, the foal may be denied registration.

b.  Any violation of these Embryo/Oocyte Transfer rules will be subject to review by the Breed Rules Committee and any resultant foal may be ineligible for registration.

c.  All other rules and regulations of the NSHR will also apply.

 

V.  Transfer Of Registration

A.  Change in Owner of Record

To transfer recorded ownership of a registered horse, the recorded owner must complete and sign the transfer portion of the original Certificate of Registration.  Each person to whom the ownership is transferred is responsible for promptly sending to the NSHR a completed and signed Certificate of Registration and paying the transfer fee (see Fee Schedule, Section XVI).

 

B.  Transfer without Signature of Owner of Record

Whenever legal title to a registered horse passes to another person because of the death of the owner, any court order or decree or by foreclosure of any lien, the NSHR may transfer the registration of such horse to the new owner upon the following:

1.  Upon order of a court of competent jurisdiction or other satisfactory proof of authority for the transfer;

2.  Upon payment of the transfer fee and any reasonable costs and expenses of investigation;

3.  Upon NSHR's receipt of certified copies of all related documentation supporting or ordering the transfer; and

4.  Upon satisfaction of such other requirements as may be deemed necessary by the NSHR.

 

C.  Sale without Certificate of Registration

If a registered horse is sold without the Certificate of Registration, the certificate must be surrendered by the recorded owner to the NSHR for cancellation.  The NSHR will record such cancellation in its records.


VI.  Certificate Changes and Replacement

                A.  Replacement Certificate

To obtain a replacement for a Certificate of Registration which has been torn, mutilated, soiled or otherwise defaced, but which is identifiable, the owner of record must submit the original Certificate of Registration to the NSHR for identification and pay the replacement certificate fee (see Fee Schedule, Section XVI).  Upon approval by the NSHR, a replacement certificate will be issued to the owner of record.

 

B.  Duplicate Certificate

To obtain a duplicate Certificate of Registration, the owner of record must file with the NSHR a completed affidavit, on a form provided by the NSHR, providing a satisfactory explanation of the loss of the original Certificate of Registration and pay the duplicate certificate fee (see Fee Schedule, Section XVI).  Upon approval by the NSHR, a duplicate Certificate of Registration, so marked, will be issued to the owner of record.  All recorded owners must sign the affidavit even if horse was originally registered in an “or” ownership.

 

C.  Markings or Color Change

A recorded owner may request a change in a horse's markings and/or color as shown on the Certificate of Registration by submitting the Certificate of Registration along with the appropriate form, provided by the NSHR, and such information as may be required by the NSHR.  Upon approval by the NSHR, an amended Certificate of Registration will be issued to the owner of record at no charge.

 

D.  Castration

After a stallion is castrated, the Certificate of Registration marked with the date of castration must be submitted to the NSHR.  The NSHR will issue to the owner of record a new certificate, at no charge, indicating the horse is a gelding.

 

E.  Cancellation upon Death

Upon the death of a registered horse, the Certificate of Registration and a statement signed by the owner of record indicating the date of death must be sent to the NSHR for recording and cancellation.  Upon request, the NSHR will return the cancelled certificate to the recorded owner.
