Stallions & Breeding

Application for Stallion License
A Stallion License Application must be completed prior to the issuing of a stallion license. This form is returned to the AHR office–it is not sent in with the DNA sample. Note that the top half is completed by the stallion owner, and the bottom half is completed by the veterinarian examining the stallion. Stallions must be two years old prior to the examination. All stallions used for breeding must be DNA tested and examined in order to be licensed. Have your vet examine the horse and complete the bottom portion of the Stallion License Application. Return the Stallion License Application to the AHR office.

If DNA testing is not on file: When your completed application is received, the office will respond with a DNA application including the ID number for submitting hair for DNA testing to UC Davis. It is the owner’s responsibility to collect and mail hair samples to UC Davis lab.

Certificate of Breeding
A breeding certificate must accompany each foal registration, even when you own the foal’s sire. This is a new form for many members; look at it carefully. Please fill in every blank. If you own both stallion and mare, you may write “same” to avoid completing identical information for each.
