The American Horse Council’s (AHC) first quarter 2020 webinar on horse breed registries, which will be held on Thursday, February 13, at 1:00 PM ET. A breed registry, also known as a stud book or register, in animal husbandry and the hobby of animal fancy, is an official list of animals within a specific breed whose parents are known. There are over 100 unique horse breed registries in the U.S.

“U.S. Department of Agriculture and the American Horse Council frequently get inquiries as to how to go about registering a horse, or how to establish a registry. We hope this webinar will help educate and provide insights on the steps owners and breeders can take to register their horse,” stated Julie Broadway, AHC President.

Speakers for the Webinar on Horse Breed Registries

Speakers for the webinar on horse breed registries will include:
◆ Cliff Williamson, Director of Health & Regulatory Affairs at the American Horse Council
◆ Debbie Fuentes, Senior Director of Customer Service and Registrar at the Arabian Horse Association
◆ Jeanette Beranger, Senior Program Manager at The Livestock Conservancy

Tentative topics include:
◆ What a registry does and what role it serves in the larger equine industry.
◆ Why a registry may need to be created, how to start a registry, and who to reach out to get support.
◆ U.S., E.U. and U.K. requirements for breeds whose owners want to sell animals overseas and/or compete

The webinar is open to both AHC members and non-members—we encourage everyone to attend! The webinar lasts approximately one hour and will allow for Q&A at the end of each speaker’s presentation. To register for the webinar, please contact Cliff Williamson at
