THE REGISTRY

The Purpose of the SBHA  Registry 

 

Our purpose is to record pedigrees and track ownership of horses that qualify for registration in the SBHA.

 

The majority of our registered horses are offspring of registered SBHA animals; however the SBHA is an “open” registry, in that we accept applications for horses from parentage not currently registered in our association.

 

Regardless of the origins of an applicant, each horse accepted into the Registry must stand on its own merit. This means passing an inspection  based  on its  individual adherence  to  SBHA Breed Standard.

How Does the SBHA Differ from Other Colonial Spanish Horse Registries?

 

Our association, originally called the Spanish Barb Breeders (SBBA), was established in 1972 with the desire to both preserve and restore horses of Colonial Spanish descent to their original quality through which time and circumstances had exacted a change. 

REGISTRY DIVISIONS

 

The SBHA Registry consists of four divisions:

General: For horses and foals out of at least one SBHA registered parent. 

Permanent: The most prestigious division honoring horses that have most closely adhered to the

 breed standard, as well as for any SBHA registered horses that have attained advancement from the General or Appendix division, resulting from their application and inspection.  Horses must be at least three years of age to apply.  

 

Appendix: This division is a multiple-purpose classification for horses that display Spanish Barb characteristics, but who do not qualify for the General or Permanent divisions. Appendix horses must also be inspected and accepted.  Offspring of horses in the Appendix division are eligible to apply for the General & Permanent divisions.
 

Half-blood: For half-blood horses produced by either a SBHA registered sire or dam.
