Imported Hanoverian, Rhineland, or Hessen horses issued registration papers outside of the United States must be recorded into the AHS’ database to compete for AHS year-end breed awards, go to an inspection, or have offspring registered with AHS.
- A name must be declared for the horse.
- Mares ALREADY ENTERED into the German Studbook MAY NOT HAVE THEIR NAME CHANGED.
- When choosing a name, it must start with the first letter of the sire’s name.
- Certain “W” line horses have reverted to the “F” line, so please check with the AHS Office if this applies to your horse.
- The name may not exceed 20 characters, including spaces and punctuation, and must be unique.
- You are allowed to show your horse under a different name.
- Fill out the online recording form and upload a copy of the front cover and pages 2 and 3 for passports issued prior to 2016 (for passports issued in 2016 or later, copy the front cover and page 21) OR a copy of the front of the Certificate of Ownership.
- The owner of record will be amended in the AHS database and stickers will be mailed to the new owner to affix onto the original passport.
