This page provides registration & transfer information.
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.
Registration applications may be downloaded from the NASS Website (see below) or requested from the NASS Registrar.
The parentage of all purebred Shagya-Arabian, Shagya Arabian (Book II) and Appendix Shagya-Arabian (previously "Part-Shagya-Arabian") foals registered with SHARONA must be verified by DNA typing the sire, the dam, and the foal. NASS accepts DNA Profiles from other organizations for parentage verification upon those organizations' labs releasing it to NASS' lab (University of Kentucky). If you are in doubt as to whether or not the stallion and/or mare have already been DNA typed, check with the NASS Registrar or NASS Breeding Committee.
The DNA SAMPLE is posted below and 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 (Book II) and Appendix Shagya-Arabians registered with SHARONA must be tested for SCID and CA, unless both parents are already recorded as being "clear”. Lab reports must be sent to the NASS Registrar.
