Oregon Bred Program

Oregon Bred Program

  1. A horse must be foaled within the geographic boundaries of Oregon to be eligible to be registered Oregon Bred. An application for this registration must be filled out in its entirety, and accompanied by the appropriate fees. The OQHA will provide the proper forms upon request for the Oregon Bred registration. The Oregon Bred committee chairman must approve the Oregon Bred application.
  2. A horse must have his Oregon Bred application for registration before the committee chairman for approval before the registration is valid. With the Oregon Bred Breeders Seal affixed to the AQHA papers, the horse becomes eligible to receive Oregon Bred awards.
  3. The name of the individual applying for the Oregon Bred registration shall be the same as that on the membership card. The burden of the responsibility lies with the old and new owners to notify the OQHA of any change in ownership.
