Registering Your Foal or Horse with the ATA
Benefits of Registering Your Horse with the ATA:
Registering your Trakehner horse helps to promote the Trakehner breed and is the first step towards future inspection and approval for breeding. Participation in the ATA year end awards program, horse of the year (HOY) or USDF/USEF all-breeds awards requires registration as does the ATA futurity awards program.
Registering your horse provides evidence of lineage which may be helpful in marketing and selling your horse. Many prospective buyers of horses are interested in a horse's individual registration as well as performance awards.
A DNA typing kit will be sent from the ATA Office once the registration fee and the appropriate paperwork have been received. Obtain a tail hair sample from the foal (it must include the roots of the hair). The parentage of all horses registered with the ATA must be verified by DNA typing. If the dam has not been DNA typed, then a sample will need to be submitted from her as well. Parentage verification through DNA typing must be performed before a foal’s registration can be completed.
Once all required information has been received & registration is completed, the foal’s registration papers are mailed from the ATA Office. All fillies, colts and gelded weanlings are entered into the appropriate Registry book (full Trakehner, anglo/arab trakehner or part-Trakehner). "Original Stud Book" or approved breeding entries are made when the mares are presented for inspection at three years of age or older and stallions are presented for inspection at two years of age or older. Stallion breeding registration (after approval) is final after a stallion completes his performance test requirements.
