Please see NASS Fee Schedule for all associated fees.
Registration applications can be downloaded from the website (see below) or requested from the NASS Registrar.
To register a Shagya-Arabian bred horse born in North America with SHARONA, you must complete a Registration Application for Horses Born in North America. Applications for foals should be submitted before December 31 of their birth year in order to avoid a late fee. Older horses are eligible for registration. If the horse to be registered has been previously recorded with any other registry, a copy of the complete valid registration must accompany the NASS application.
To register an imported Shagya-Arabian bred horse with SHARONA, you must complete a Registration Application for Imported Horses. The application clearly states at the top what documentation is required, including: copy of certificate of registration and official pedigree, record of transfer to current owner, date of importation, translation into English of any documentation in a foreign language and a standard foal application for a foal imported in utero.
The parentage of horses registered with SHARONA must be verified through DNA typing before the registration papers are issued. NASS accepts DNA Profiles from other organizations for parentage verification upon those organizations' labs releasing it to NASS' filing laboratory at the University of Kentucky.
The NASS DNA SAMPLE FORM can be downloaded from the website or requested by email from the NASS Registrar.
Beginning with the foaling year 2021, all Purebred Shagya-Arabians, Shagya Arabians and Appendix Shagya-Arabians are required to submit testing results for the genetic disorders SCID and CA to the registry before registration papers are issued, unless both parents are already on record with the registry as being clear.
TRANSFERS: When selling or transferring ownership of a horse that's registered with SHARONA:
Please do not send the original bill of sale. Send NASS a copy and retain the original for your records. You may cross out anything on the submitted copy that you'd prefer to keep private (i.e. price, terms, etc.).
Once the transfer is recorded, the registration certificate will be returned to the new owner.
LOST OR DAMAGED CERTIFICATES: Replacement certificates may be requested by contacting the NASS Registrar and paying the certificate replacement fee.
Please see the NASS Fee Schedule posted below for all associated fees.
