Whether you have a pure or partbred Saddlebred, or just want one of our ID passports for non-Saddlebreds, we offer a fast service and one of the most reasonably priced passports on the market. All passports are returned by Recorded Delivery.
Any queries email: Registrar@american-saddlebred.co.uk
Phone: 079418-12212 (answer phone)
Please note you MUST use the new application form (Sept 2017) and the barcode sticker for the microchip MUST be attached to the form (not handwritten for ANY passport applications, unless applying for overstamp of existing passport only).
Passport applications, horse registrations, transfer of ownership, details of castration etc. should be sent to the HORSE REGISTRAR.
WHO IS ELIGIBLE TO REGISTER?
We can issue passports for ANY equine, whether a Saddlebred or a non-Saddlebred.
Purebred Saddlebreds, registered in America with the ASHA and parentage verified by DNA are entered onto our main registry.
Direct offspring (first generation) from ASHA registered purebreds who are not themselves ASHA registered shall be considered for entry onto Appendix A and can be upgraded onto our Main Regsitry upon ASHA registration.
Partbred Saddlebreds are entered onto our Appendix B registry.
Non-Saddlebreds can also register with us for an ID passport and are entered onto our Appendix Q Registries.
Horses can be dual-registered with many societies, but they can of course only have ONE passport.
If you choose to register with us and obtain your passport from us, then simply fill in the application form in full. You must get a vet to insert a microchip and the Vet must also fill in the ID part of the application form. Please also read the Legal requirements for owners page.
If you choose to obtain your Saddlebred's passport from another PIO, but you still wish to register him/her with us, then you only need to fill in the first page of the application form - it is not necessary to get a Vet to do this. In addition you must send your horse's passport in with the application form, as this will be overstamped by us as well as us issuing you with a Certificate of Registration. Please also read the Legal requirements for owners page.
You may also wish to register your non-Saddlebred with us even though he/she has a passport already. In this case, you need to fill in the first page of the application form - it is not necessary to get a Vet to do this. In addition you must send your horse's passport in with the application form, as this will be overstamped by us as well as us issuing you with a Certificate of Registration. Please also read the Legal requirements for owners page.
