The Horse For Everyone! ™
From the AMHA Office -
FEBRUARY NEWS -
The office is busy transitioning to the new software system. We are experiencing longer than usual delays on DNA kits and foal registrations, so please be patient with us as we work hard to get your papers sent out. DNA kits are now being emailed directly from the lab at UC Davis. If you need your kit mailed instead of emailed, please let us know when you order your kit. We are able to get Transfers and Temp to Perms out relatively quickly. Remember, we do NOT need photos for Transfers unless the horse is also going Permanent or being registered for the first time. We hope you like the look of our new certificates. We have put a place for an Owner Transfer on the back, so you do not need to send us an Owner Transfer form. If you have any questions at all, please email email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
IF YOU DNA YOUR 2021 FOAL AT THE TIME OF REGISTRATION, THE DNA IS DISCOUNTED 50%
SALE ENDS , AND REGISTRATION APPLICATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED ON OR BEFORE 12/31/21
LOC has developed an International Guest Judge program that allows qualified non-AMHA judge's to preside over AMHA shows. This program is being offered on a trial basis for 2021. Click here for the International Guest Judge Application.
