*Studbook of Origin*
While meeting with the European Commission, AQHA was made aware that as
of November 1, 2018, AQHA was recognized by the EU as the studbook of
origin for the American Quarter Horse. This recognition was automatically
arrived at based on several factors, including the following:
- AQHA is the holder of the historical records of all registered
American Quarter Horses.
- AQHA's breeding program (rules of registration) was officially
listed by the EU in spring 2018.
- The EU laws implemented on November 1, 2018, included definitions
allowing a studbook of origin for a particular breed to exist and be
recognized outside of the EU.
Prior to November 1, 2018, the EU recognized AQHA's German affiliate,
DQHA, as the studbook of origin for the American Quarter Horse in Europe.
DQHA pursued this recognition to safeguard the breed during a time when EU
law did not provide definitions for a studbook of origin outside of the EU.
Following the meeting with the European Commission, Dr. Morrison, Dr.
Dren and I traveled to the DQHA offices outside of Frankfurt to review this
new information, discuss the implications of DQHA stepping back from the
role of studbook of origin per the EU's request, and to thank DQHA for its
efforts on behalf of the breed. AQHA and DQHA have had a decades-long
partnership that has helped develop a strong and loyal industry of American
Quarter Horse breeders and owners in Germany.
Moving forward, AQHA's listing with the EU allows EU member states to
operate their daughter studbooks, under the direction of their competent
authorities, in alignment with AQHA's breeding program. AQHA's breeding
program can be found as the Rules of Registration within the AQHA Handbook
of Rules and Regulations.
