Fees for Registering Your Foal/Horse
For the most current fee schedule please ensure that you use a current application for registration form.
A current American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) member may transact business with the Registry. A non-member of ASHA may transact business with the Registry upon payment of a $50 non-member fee per Registry transaction.
- Basic registration fees are determined by the age of the foal/horse being registered at the date the Registry receives the application and fees. If fees are not included with the application the amount will be determined by the age of the foal/horse on the date the fees are received. Unregistered foal transfers which are not filed in the same year the foal is born will incur a $50 fee.
Birth to 6 months: $45
6 months to 12 months: $65
12 months to 24 months: $200
Over 24 months: $300
- DNA kits are $50. DNA testing is required for every foal/horse to be registered. (Foals/horses which are tested by a foreign lab require a $25 fee.)
Ø If a sire or dam has never been blood-typed or DNA tested or was blood typed prior to 1992 there is a one-time $137 fee in order to have this done.
Ø If a sire or dam has been blood-typed after 1992 they will require conversion to DNA. This is a one-time $30 fee for the lab to convert the blood sample on file.
If you are unsure if your sire or dam has had either of these tests done you may check on-line or inquire with Registry staff.
- Optional fees include the Breeder's Designation ($25) and the Return by Certified Mail ($10 - U.S. only) fees. A Breeder's Designation is an option for the breeder to assign an individual(s)/farm/business other than themselves to be listed as the breeder. Please refer to the Breeder's Designation form for more information.
