GREAT NEWS FOR STALLION OWNERS!

Pre-printed Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications are now available online!

These applications are commonly referred to as "the blue forms" and in the past were sent by postal service to stallion owners who submitted on-time Stallion Breeding Reports.

QUICK AND CONVENIENT!

Online, pre-printed Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications allow stallion owners the convenience of printing them as soon as their submitted Stallion Breeding Reports are entered in the ApHC data base. Also, a greater number of stallion owners will be able to take advantage of using pre-printed forms since it will be available for everyone, even those submitting late Stallion Breeding Reports.

THE SIMPLE 4-STEP PROCESS!

1. Go to www.appaloosa.com.

2. Click on "Member Sign In" and sign into your ApHC Online Member Account. If you have not yet signed up for an online account you can do so my clicking on the "Create Online Account" link on the Member Sign In web page.

3. Click on "My Registration Applications" to view your Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications.

4. Click on the "View & Print Application" link associated with the horse that you wish to work with to view and print your application.

The data printed on the applications is based on information submitted to the ApHC on your 2011 Stallion Breeding Report.

When you print the Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications, a "Reminder for Mare Owners" notice will also be printed. This notice reminds mare owners of the importance of registering ApHC-eligible foals resulting from your stallion's breedings, and updates them with current Rules and Regulations for ApHC-registration.

ADDITIONAL MARE OWNER INFORMATION AVAILABLE!

In an effort to further assist mare owners with the registration process, in some instances additional information will print along with the Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications. Please forward this information to mare owners along with the Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications and the Reminder to Mare Owners:

General Rules and Regulations and a partially completed application for Appaloosa Breeders' Trust will also be printed for eligible foals.

If your Stallion Breeding Report lists mare(s) that do not meet ApHC bloodline requirements, mare owner information titled, "Unknown/Unregistered Mares—Hardship Registration" will also be printed.

If your Stallion Breeding Report lists breedings in which one parent is not an ApHC-registered Appaloosa with Regular (#) registration classification, mare owner information titled, "One Parent is Not ApHC-Registered as Regular" will also be printed.

We hope you take advantage of our online, pre-printed Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications and find the process convenient and easy to use! As in the past, when pre-printed Breeder's Certificates/Registration Applications are unavailable, blank applications may be downloaded at www.appaloosa.com.

We'll be happy to answer any questions that may arise. Please contact the ApHC Registration Department at (208) 882-5578 ext. 300 or registration@appaloosa.com.
