Producing the Finest Quality Sporthorses that are truly Made In America
The ASR is not a performance registry but a group of dedicated breeders whose main goal is the production of the ultimate sporthorse of Olympic caliber. We wish to recognize and promote our own sporthorses through selective breeding and infusion of warmblood, draft, and thoroughbred bloodlines. The ASR is a new common sense and inexpensive approach to registration and record keeping for our supporters.
Eligibility for registration- Only breeding stock that is neither 100% hot (i.e. TB or Arab) or 100% cold (i.e. Draft) but is a cross-bred of both. ASR will accept International Sporthorse Registry inspected horses. Applications for non breeding stock are not required to submit a video.
Main Book Registration- Pedigree information for 3 generations is preferred- But is not mandatory.
Elite Bloodstock- Extensive pedigree is desired, and a score of 80%.
ASR inspection may be completed by video. All segments are mandatory and any video deemed inconclusive will be rejected. Horses will be scored on conformation, movement, and personality. Inspection score must be a minimum of 65%.
85% or Higher = Premium
75% to 84% = Preferred
65% to 74% = Accepted
