The IALHA Studbook and Registry
The IALHA manages both a Studbook (a record of the verified pedigree of each horse accepted into the Studbook ensuring that it meets our criteria) and a Registry, which connects the individual horses in our studbook to their breeders and current owners through a verifiable process of documentation.
Our Registry accepts for entry into our studbook Andalusians and Lusitanos that have foreign registration documents from either APSL or ANCCE and also from a select few other registries who meet our strict documentation requirements including parent verification, microchipping and clear ownership documents.
The IALHA Registry Board and Registry staff are continually working to enhance our Registry rules and processes to insure that we continue to issue registration papers of the highest quality guaranteeing the purity and identity of each horse and accurately documenting its breeder and owners. Our papers insure the value of the horses registered with us and are respected around the world. Read more about the IALHA Registry, the history of Studbooks, and what we do.
