Many of our fees had to go up on 1st January 2022 so please read through or download the new 2022 Registry Fees document. During this first full week in January the various Application Forms have ALL been updated and uploaded to the website. It’s a huge job and there may be the occasional link that doesn’t work or that takes you to a form that isn’t there, if this happens please email the details of the page and the location of the faulty link to bapshregistrar@btinternet.com and we will fix it.

2022-01-01 THE NEW DEFRA APPROVED BREEDING PROGRAMMES FOR SPANISH-NORMAN HORSES & SPANISH SPOTTED SADDLE HORSES

These wonderful breeds were fully recognised and approved by DEFRA in 2021 after a number of years of hard work on the BPs by BAPSH Ltd, and many years of work before that by dedicated British breeders. There were some quite big changes made in the regulations for both breeds in order to meet FAnGR’s concerns about the possibility of too small a gene pool in the original BP applications. Please read the new information carefully. The revised Breed Standards (available as PDF), Detailed Mating Strategies (available as PDF), Breeding Programmes etc can now be found on our website. Some of the important data has also been made available as downloadable PDFs to print and keep for referral.

2022-01-01 HISPANO-ARAB HORSES IN THE UK
Post-BREXIT in mid-2021 DEFRA agreed that the Hispano-Arabs in the UK are returned to the care of BAPSH and will now be registered, passported, and approved for breeding by BAPSH Ltd. DEFRA has confirmed this change; the UEGHa in Spain have been refused extension of their control into the UK. This BP extension refusal is due to the UEGHa’s lack of interest in the British Hispano-arab population in the last 13 years whilst they were in control of the British population.  Since BAPSH took control the first Ha has been Approved for Breeding after 15 years without Gradings for Ha. Congratulations to KEBDANI DANITA 37.5% (born in 2007) bred and owned by Mrs Phyllis Haddu.
