Registration : FPD

Foundation Pedigree Designation Program 


Foundation Pedigree Designation Application


To be eligible for the FPD program, the horse must be registered with the ApHC. This option may also be done concurrently with the application for registration. A horse must also meet the following criteria:

1. Beginning in 2009, then every ten years thereafter, the minimum percentage of eligibility will increase incrementally by requiring one additional horse in the preceding four generations of the applicant horse to be registered with the ApHC; that is, 23 out of 30 beginning in 2009, then 24 out of 30 beginning in 2019, and so on.

2. There must be a minimum of three (3) of these ancestors on both sire and dam sides of the pedigree.

3. Any and all ‘F’- numbered horses within the preceding four (4) generations of the applicant horse’s pedigree are to be considered 100% for FPD registration purposes, regardless of the parentage of those ‘F’ numbered horses.

4 . Horses may enter the FPD program at the percentage level requirements that were in place at the time of their birth. For example, horses born in or prior to 2003 may enter the FPD program at 50 percent; horses born in 2004 to 2008 may enter the FPD program at 73 percent, and so on. Refer to the Official Handbook of the ApHC for additional information.
