Sections of the Studbook

Purebred

Both sire and dam of the pony requested to be registered must be registered purebred New Forest Ponies documenting parentage for at least three (3) generations with a studbook recognized by the New Forest Pony Breeding and Cattle Society of England. DNA of both the sire and dam of the applicant must be on file with the University of Kentucky Equine Parentage Testing & Research Lab for the purposes of parentage verification. The sire of the pony requested to be registered must have been licensed by a studbook recognized by the NFPB&CS of England at the time of conception.  No foal can be entered unless the sire has been entered and licensed in a recognized and authorized daughter stud book of the NFPB&CS of England with DNA on file with the University of Kentucky, USA.

Part-bred

Encompassing both first-cross and second-cross ponies. One parent or grandparent of the pony requested to be registered must be registered as a purebred New Forest Pony documenting parentage for at least three (3) generations with a studbook recognized by the New Forest Pony Breeding and Cattle Society of England. DNA of the New Forest parent or grandparent of the applicant must be on file with the University of Kentucky Equine Parentage Testing & Research Lab for the purposes of parentage/grand-parentage verification. Part-bred stallions are not licensed by the New Forest Pony Society of North America, but the offspring of first-cross (one parent being purebred) New Forest Ponies may enter the studbook as part-bred New Forest Ponies.

Section X

Purebred ponies that do not adhere to the Breed Standards may be registered in the X Section of the studbook.  This includes things such as ponies over 148cms or of incorrect coloring and/or markings.  Ponies initially registered as purebred, but later determined to not meet breed standards (i.e. over height), will be moved to Section X. Offspring of Section X ponies crossed with purebred ponies will continue to be registered in Section X.  And, while these ponies may compete in NFPSNA’s show programs, they are not permitted to compete as purebred ponies in Registered Purebred New Forest Pony classes.
