To update, delete, or add information to a report that has already been created simply click on the "Edit Report" link next to the open report that you wish to change.

On the My Stallion Report webpage you will see a listing for Open Reports and Submitted Reports.

Open Reports are stallion breeding reports that you are currently entering but have not completed or submitted. You have an ability to enter breeding information throughout the year and the system will retain all information. Just remember to submit the report prior to the November 30th deadline so late fees will not be incurred!

Submitted Reports are reports that you have submitted online to the ApHC for approval. Once your online stallion breeding report has been verified as being correctly filed it will be uploaded for you to view via the Web.
