ICHR (Colour Registry)

NEW! Now you can colour register your IMHR registered horses and ponies too!

TIPS ON CHOOSING A CATEGORY:

ICHR classes horses and ponies based on their phenotype (the way they look) as opposed to their genotype (genetic make up).

  • If a horse/pony has pink skinned white hair on the body (not including white markings on head or legs) which is larger than a sheet of A4 paper, ICHR classes it as a pinto (excludes Perlino/Cremello).
  • If a horse/pony has spots or other visible appaloosa markings such as striped feet, mottled skin. roaning, frosting etc, ICHR classes it as palouse.
  • If a horse/pony has both of the above, ICHR classes it as a pintaloosa.

A horse/pony can only be registered as ONE of the above patterns.

If a horse/pony is eligible for any of the above classifications, it cannot be registered as any of the following:

  • Buckskin
  • Palomino
  • Silver
  • Cremello
  • Perlino
  • Dun
