The Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse Launches Worldwide Horse RegistryNew

Albuquerque, NM----The Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse unveiled a new worldwide registry for Pure Spanish Horses (P.R.E). The announcement was made at the Foundation’s annual meeting held January 26 in Dallas, Texas.

The new registry, called the P.R.E. Mundial, will initially serve breeders and owners in the United States, but will also support associations and individual members in other countries. Negotiations are underway with several Pure Spanish Horse associations in Europe, Mexico, Central and South America, and are expected to be finalized by mid-year.

Barbara Currie, Chairman of the Board stated: “The recent passing of the Spanish Stud Book out of the hands of its century-long administrators, the Cría Caballar, has painfully highlighted the need for a more global approach to registering horses and advocating for the P.R.E. Failure to support breeders outside of Spain has cost the international owners and breeders significant hardship due to the lack of availability of registration documents.”

The P.R.E. Mundial Registry will use a rigorous inspection or revision process similar to that used traditionally in Spain. This ensures that only quality horses enter the Registry. This process will be supported by former members of the Cría Caballar. Mrs. Currie further commented: “We are thrilled to have the support and participation of the former officers of the Cría Caballar as well as other experts including judges from the Spanish College of Judges.”

The Foundation invites owners and breeders of Pure Spanish Horses who have questions about registering horses in the United States to contact Barbara Clark, Executive Director, at the Albuquerque office. The program will be fully operational in February. More can be learned by accessing the website: http://www.prehorse.org and clicking at the bottom of the purple cover for the registration papers.
