Welcome to the NFHR Website
FROM THE REGISTRAR'S OFFICE
Registrations and Transfers: Please refer to our Rules of Registration
and Services and Fees
page for NFHR rules and current fees before you send in your paperwork. Get your current years foal registrations in before they're 6 months old, to save on cost! If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar at 303.684.6466 or email@example.com
Microchip Requirement Clarification:
The NFHR BOD has rescinded the 2022 motion requiring microchipping for registration. While this means microchipping is not required, our incentive program for such has been extended (see announcement from 1-4-2024).
A new policy effective 1/1/2022: a $10 discount on registration fees per horse, if microchipping is completed before registration is presented. The Notification of Microchipping form needs to be submitted with the registration application to recieve the incentive.
If you have any questions, please contact, firstname.lastname@example.org or 303.684.6466
On 12/23/22 the NFHR board voted to cease sales of microchips. Microchips may be purchased by other means and reported to the NFHR. To report, go to our forms page [ click here for link
] and download the "Notification of Microchipping" form. Complete that form and return it to the NFHR office.
If you have no other means to obtain a microchip, you can order using this link: [ click here
]. "The perfect microchip for all things Equine: Proof of Ownership, Health Certificates, FEI Passports, USEF Rules, Event Registration and more."

FYI: To change a ByLaw here is how our ByLaws read:
ARTICLE XIII. AMENDMENT PROCEDURES
A. AMENDMENTS TO THE BYLAWS. The Board of Directors shall periodically review the Bylaws and propose changes as needed. The proposed changes shall be posted on the website as soon as they are available. A ballot shall be sent to the members by mail or electronically at least 45 days prior to the deadline stated for the return of the ballot. Approval of substantive changes to the Bylaws will be by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of all members responding to the ballot. Changes in the Bylaws to correct spelling, grammar, formatting, numbering, consistency, or to comply with applicable laws shall require only the approval of the Board of Directors.
PHASE II OF NEW DATA BASE - CUSTOMER PORTAL
We have released Phase II, a new Customer Portal and Pedigree Website. This new site will replace the existing Pedigree Site by the end of the year.
The Customer Portal will allow members to:
Update their customer record (address, phone, email, privacy settings)
View and manage all the horses they currently own
Upload images of horses they currently own
Report horses they own as gelded or deceased
View members only messages from the office
Access the Fjord Herald electronic version
Access the new Pedigree Website
We are also currently working on the ability to let owners initiate registrations and transfers, as well as file Stallion Service reports directly with the office.
In order to use the new Customer Portal, you will need to set up a new login using the current email address you have on file with the office. Please correct your email address or add to your renewal form. If you do not supply us with this information, then your login information will be inaccurate and could lead to problems for you gaining access to the portal.
Please contact Jeanne email@example.com with any problems/questions. She is working closely with the Database Developer and will get your questions answered in a timely manner. One suggestion; please be sure to check your spam folder if you don't receive your confirmation email.
NOTIFICATION OF CLARIFICATION IN RULES OF REGISTRATION
No comments were received by the 11/17/23 deadline. THIS RULE CHANGE (CLARIFICATION) HAS NOW BEEN PUT IN PLACE. Visit the Rules of Registration to view.
Dear NFHR Members,
The following clarification (in red font) has been approved by the Board of Directors, to be included in our Rules of Registration.
The Breeders Committee would like to propose the following correction to the Rules of Registration Article I, Paragraph D. It is our hope that with the scientific clarification of what a horse is and what crossbreeding is that there will be no room for further argument within the membership.
Article I. D. OUTCROSSING PROHIBITION:
1. The NFHR prohibits NFHR registered horses from being outcrossed with other breeds of horses. This includes other breeds of horses as well as any other animal in the family Equidae or genus Equus.
2. If an NFHR registered horse, mare or stallion, has been proven to have been used for outcrossing with another breed of horse or other animal in the family Equidae or genus Equus, the NFHR Registrar will withdraw that horse from the Registry and so remove any registration privileges to that horse and to any future progeny of that horse.
