Breeding Methods: Stallion Owner
Owning a successful stallion is an investment in both time and money. Be sure you have done all the legwork to ensure his foals are eligible for registration.
- All stallions must be DNA typed.
- All stallions must be genetic health panel tested. Please visit Genetic Health for more information on genetic defects.
- A stallion breeding report must be filed by November 30th of the breeding year listing all AQHA mares and the dates they were bred.
- If frozen or transported semen is used it should be indicated on the report.
- If semen is frozen and stored, a permit should be purchased to protect your investment in your stallion.
- The stallion owner must sign the breeder’s certificate on the application in box 7 or release it online.
- For stallions born 2015 and after, his semen may only be used for two calendar years following his death or gelding to produce a foal eligible for registration per REG111.6.
