ASDR stands for “Australian Stock Horse Society Registry” which is a registry of Australian Stock Horse breeding, maintaining an accurate database of breeding information and keeping records of the performance of all registered stock horses. The Australian Stock Horse is known for its versatility, athleticism, and intelligence, and is used for a wide variety of disciplines such as campdrafting, cutting, dressage, endurance, eventing, polocrosse, show jumping, and more.
To register a horse with the ASDR, the horse must meet certain criteria, including:
- The horse must be a purebred Australian Stock Horse or a partbred with at least 75% Australian Stock Horse blood.
- The horse must be DNA tested and the results must be provided to the ASDR.
- The horse must be inspected and approved by an ASDR inspector.
- The horse’s dam and sire must be registered with the ASDR.
- Ownership of the horse must be verified.
Once the horse is registered, it will be given a unique registration number and will be listed in the ASDR database. This registration will allow the horse to participate in ASDR events and to be eligible for awards and recognition.
It’s also important to note that the registration process and criteria may change over time, so you should check the ASDR website or contact them for the most current information.
To begin the registration process, you will need to contact the ASHS and request registration forms. These forms can also be found on their website. Once the forms are completed and the horse has met the registration criteria, the application will be reviewed by the society. If the horse is approved, a registration certificate will be issued and the horse will be listed in the society’s database.
