Stallions at Stud
LICENSED STALLION INFORMATION
ApHC UK Stallion owners must obtain a stallion licence from the ApHC UK if they wish to register the stallion’s offspring. The stallion must pass a five stage vetting with an independent vet (not your own vet). Once the veterinary report has been completed, send your Stallion Licence Form and ApHC UK Application Form for a Veterinary Certificate for a Colt/Stallion together with a current colour photo (taken side on) and a fee of £50 to the Registrar. A negative test certificate for the hereditary condition PSSM1 and a negative grey gene test must also accompany the application. (Details from www.horsedna.co.uk) Please note that stallions must be licenced by 3 years of age if you wish to register their offspring with the ApHC UK and if you wish to show them at our ApHC UK breed shows. You can licence stallions after this time but any coverings that take place before they are licenced will not meet our normal registration criteria.
• ApHC (American) stallions do not need to be licensed to breed to ApHC mares or A register mares. This is because the ApHC in America does not operate a licensing system. However if ApHC stallions based in the UK cover a B registered mare the offspring will not be eligible for the main B register unless the stallion is also licenced with the ApHC UK. Please refer to our registration criteria for more detailed information on our registration criteria and procedures.
• If your stallion already has a licence with another breed society or organisation, this may be acceptable to the ApHC UK provided the stallion has undergone a five stage vetting and meets all our pedigree and registration requirements. You will be sent a stallion licence certificate with the relevant stallion licence number.
Stallion Report Forms
All licensed stallion owners are required to complete a stallion breeding form each year giving details of the mares covered that year by 31 December. This form is to be sent to the registrar as proof of the mares covered. Please see below the costs:-
£10.00 Annual Filing fee (for each stallion)
£2.00 per mare (charge for each mare covered)
• Stallion report forms must be sent in to the Registrar by 31 December of each year. Stallion report forms submitted after the 31 December will cost £50 plus an additional £2.00 per mare as a late filing fee.
• In order to register a foal on the ApHC UK Appaloosa breed registers the stallion owner must submit an annual stallion report form along with the appropriate fee otherwise the progeny from that stallion can not be registered with us.
Licenced stallions that are standing at stud in the UK are eligible to advertise in the relevant section of our on-line stallion directory on our website - www.aphcuk.org. Other stallions that may be of interest to our members may also advertise in the relevant section of the stallion directory including ApHC American stallions or stallions from permitted outcrosses. All Appaloosa breeders are welcome to advertise in our breeders guide. The ApHC UK will provide as much information as possible to help members make informed decisions about breeding and registration.
