Due to the overwhelming response of the aged-horse registration special in 2021, the American Quarter Horse Association is extending the offer for a limited time.

Part of AQHA’s mission is to record and preserve the pedigree of the American Quarter Horse. Each horse registered with the Association is integral to staying true to the core mission of recording and preserving the breed.

AQHA members can register American Quarter Horses 24 months after the foaling date or older for the price of a yearling – only $170. This is a savings of up to $380 based on the age of the horse! All AQHA registration rules apply to new registrations. To be eligible for registration, all registration requirements must be met*.

AQHA has always encouraged early foal registration by keeping weanling registration fees lower for members; however, this special gives unregistered aged horses the opportunity to join the more than 6 million American Quarter Horses registered worldwide. Prices for horses 23 months after the foaling date and younger will remain the same.  

To begin the registration process, view the AQHA Registration Guide and download the registration application.

AQHA Member Experience Professionals are available via phone and email to assist with any questions regarding the AQHA registration process. To register a horse as an American Quarter Horse, you must be an AQHA member. If you are not a current member, join AQHA or renew your membership today!
