Mare & foal Registration     

is organizing and doing the inspection for the Westphalian Pferdestammbuch e.V. Germany

Principles of the attendance of American breeders

I. Breeding-book

There is only one Westphalian breeding-book, which is located at Münster and is kept in

accordance with the provisions of the breeding-book regulations of the Westphalian

Horse Breeders Association. Sire and dam of the foals who are to be brandmarked with

the Westphalian brandmark, or for which a pedigree-paper is to be issued, must be

registered in the breeding book, no matter where they may be located.

II. Registration of foals & mare

Foals can be registered (foalbrand and pedigree-paper), if either the dam and/or the sire

has Westphalian or Rheinländer pedigree-papers. In any case the sire has to be licensed by a German

Warmblood Association (any German Warmblood Sire is accepted!) but he must have successfully passed the

stallion approval test in Germany. In exceptional cases the stallion approval test in U.S.A. can be accepted.

Besides Westphalian mares, other warmblood and Thoroughbred mares can be registered

and accepted as a broodmare for the Westphalian Association if they are of outstanding
