International Andalusian & Lusitano Horse Association
The IALHA registry is dedicated to the preservation of the bloodlines of Spanish (Andalusian/PRE) and Portuguese (Lusitano/PSL) horses in the United States.  This trust has been taken very seriously since the founding of the first registry in the United States in 1966. The studbooks of the two mother countries were the foundation of that first registry.  In 1995 the IAHA and AAHA were combined to create IALHA. At that time, ALL the horses in the studbooks of both registries were checked very carefully to ensure that the studbook of the new IALHA Registry was absolutely correct and served as a solid foundation.

The Registration Process

Each registration application is carefully reviewed by our registry specialists for all necessary elements.

After receipt of photographs, DNA analysis, parent verification, and permanent identification (through microchipping and/or branding), the application is sent to the IALHA Registrar and one of the Registry Board members for final review.

If the horse has been imported, or has parents not registered with IALHA, the paperwork is reviewed by the IALHA Registrar and all Registry Board members.

Following approval, a Certificate of your IALHA registered horse will be mailed.

The Half Andalusian Registry

The IALHA also maintains a half-bred Registry.  Horses eligible for this registry must have two IALHA registered half-bred parents, or one Purebred parent crossed with any other breed.  Half-bred Andalusian or Lusitano registrations receive the same level of scrutiny as purebred registrations before being approved and issued a Certificate.

Providing value

The IALHA Registry Board and Registry staff diligently uphold our Registry rules and processes to ensure that the registration papers we issue are of the highest quality, guarantee the purity and identity of each horse, and accurately document its breeder and owners.

This is why the IALHA Registration process and Studbook are respected around the world for their judiciousness and reliability. When the certificate is safely in your hands, you know that your horse’s identity is assured and is the descendant of a breed of horse that traces back to the Horse of Kings.
