Registering your mare online requires that you attach an electronic copy of your mares papers, including the second page with markings. Once you submit the form a copy will be sent back to your email with the time and date that you submitted it, for your records.
Due July 1, of the year prior to foaling, however if you decide to register your mare AFTER July 1, you will need to register her and breed back to an Indiana Registered Stallion. More information is available in the complete Quarter Horse Breed Development Program Rules.
*Mare applications are to be completed annually.
Please Note: Even if your mare is registered for a particular year, if the foal was not registered with Indiana it will not be Indiana Bred (IB) eligible. Please make sure to register your foal within 1 year of the foaling date. Foals that are not registered within their 1st year of the foaling date will have a late fee assessed. The breakdown of late fees are as follows:
12 months and 1 day to December 31st of the yearling year: $200 late fee
2 years old: $400 late fee
3 years old and older: $1,000 late fee
