i) Fills out the Identification Diagram in full detail, marking EVERY Whorl and Feather on the Foal (including common Whorls), and gives a full written description including the IRIS Colour of the Eyes, and the Skin Colour underlying the hair. The Vet and the Owner should check that the ID Diagram Markings correctly correspond to the Foal’s actual Markings and that the Written Description does not accidentally Transpose any Markings from left to right or vice versa.

4. Sire/Dam’s Genetic Health Test Results Certificate (if not already submitted to BAPSH Ltd) where one of the parents has Appaloosa blood. If the SSSH or Appaloosa parent is not certified Negative then either that parent or the foal must be DNA tested for PSSM1.
5. Mare Owner’s Section of the Covering Certificate,
6.The current Registration + Pedigree Passport Fee (£74.00) plus the fees for the DNA tests where required – see below.

Genetic Typing and/or Testing
If genetic testing is required, the hair sample for the foal (or parent horse) is sent by BAPSH Ltd to Animal Genetics UK in order to have one or more of the following tests performed:-
a) Lp gene and Patn1 gene – The foal is tested for the Lp and Patn genes IF it does not show clearly visible evidence of the Lp gene in its birth coat colouring
b) Grey gene – If the PRE parent is Grey then the foal must be tested for the Grey gene. Foals with non-Grey parents do not need this test because Grey is a Dominant gene and will always be expressed in the coat colour of the parent.
c) DNA Type and Parentage Test.
The Foal will ONLY require DNA Type & Parentage Test IF these two Time-frames have been MISSED :-
   i) A Copy of the Covering Certificate was NOT sent to the BAPSH Registry Office within ONE month of the last Covering Date,
ii) The Foal Registration Application is NOT sent to the BAPSH Office BEFORE the foal reaches FIVE Months Old.
d) PSSM1 – The test for PSSM1 is done if the Appaloosa lineage parent or parents is/are NOT certified Negative for this genetic disease.
NOTE 1 :- Hair samples that are not used are stored securely in that horse’s own dossier.
NOTE 2 :- If Parentage Testing IS required and One parent has no DNA Type Profile recorded with the relevant Breed Studbook, the Breeder of the Foal will need to request a hair sample of this horse from its owner and send it to BAPSH with the Fee for DNA typing; thus enabling the Parentage Test for the Foal to be completed.

BAPSH Ltd have a business agreement with Animal Genetics UK which gives all our clients a discount on the usual prices providing the DNA samples are submitted by BAPSH Ltd. The Animal Genetics Test application form will be completed by the BAPSH Registry Office upon receipt of the Hair Sample and the appropriate Fee. Please contact BAPSH Registry Office for the current prices for each Genetic Test.

2. UK BORN FOAL/HORSE REGISTRATION WITH A PASSPORT FROM ANOTHER PIO STUDBOOK OR AN ID-ONLY PASSPORT

Horses with parentage eligible to be recognised as a Spanish Spotted Saddle Horse are sometimes Passported with another Equine Breed Studbook first or with a non-pedigree ID-Only Passport by their first Owner. A later Owner may desire to have the pedigree SPANISH SPOTTED SADDLE HORSE breed status of their horses recognised by Registration in the BAPSH Ltd SPANISH SPOTTED SADDLE HORSE Studbook.
This can be done for ID-Only Passports providing the Covering Certificate issued by the owner of the Stallion is still with the horse’s paperwork given to the later Owner. Passports issued by Other Equine Breed Studbooks will usually be accepted once the stated pedigree is verified by BAPSH.
Inclusion in BAPSH Ltd SPANISH SPOTTED SADDLE HORSE Studbook will recognise the pedigree parentage, and enable the horse to enter in the majority of the classes at the National Breed Show for Spanish horses in July, and also to enter in a wide variety of Iberian, Spanish, and Foreign Breeds classes at local and county shows, plus the BD dressage championships for Spanish horses.
