Product Overview


Use this product to register:

  • All horses and ponies under 5 years of age whom DO NOT have verifiable parentage (ie. parentage is not verifiable by Stallion Return, DNA parentage test, or dual registration with a RECOGNISED society (see below)).
  • Horses and ponies born before 1 Aug 2015 whom have known parentage which cannot be verified. Sire and dam's names will ONLY be added to registration certificates of horses and ponies born before 1 Aug 2015.

As per the IMHR Constitution, the fee for horses or ponies registered with unknown parentage shall be double the cost of the normal fee. Horses or ponies must be micro-chipped or branded for identification purposes.

  •  Please use the Gelding (FREE) for all Geldings.
  • Please use the TRANSFER product if you have purchased a horse which already holds IMHR registration (check the IMHR online studbook if you are unsure).
  • Please complete form carefully, checking all spelling.
  • Do NOT complete form using all capital letters.


Regarding the IMHR Studbook Amnesty:

For the amnesty period to 1 August 2015, parentage as specified by the registered owner will be recorded on the Association stud book and registration certificates. After this date, proof of parentage must be provided via stallion return (lodged with IMHR before resultant foal is born), DNA or dual registration with another society recognised by the Committee. Horses without confirmed parentage shall be listed with parentage ‘not on file’ until parentage is confirmed.

 Recognised societies for the purposes of registration are:

- Miniature Horse Association of Australia (MHAA) Inc.

- Australian Miniature Pony Society (AMPS) Inc.

- New Zealand Miniature Horse Association (NZMHA) Inc.

- American Miniature Horse Association (AMHA) Inc.

- American Shetland Pony Club (ASPC)

- Australian Pony Stud Book (APSB)


Regarding the use of MHAA service certificates:

If you are attempting to register a horse born after 1 Aug 2015 using an MHAA service certificate, you must include a copy of the lodgement receipt (tax invoice) which would have been issued to the stallion owner at the time the return was submitted. Failure to do so will result in the horse being registered with parentage 'not on file' until parentage is confirmed by other means as outlined above.
