Advances in technology and streamlining of American Morgan Horse Association’s work processes have enabled AMHA to trim some Registry feesa nd approve a new fee schedule in an effort to encourage registrations and transfers.

Doing this will fulfill the Association's mission to preserve and perpetuate the Morgan breed and maintain the accuracy of the AMHA registry. These changes will go into effect on January 1, 2015.

A Registry subcommittee conducted numerous interviews and surveys for six months of Morgan horse owners and breeders to gain insights and suggestions.

In brief, AMHA has broadened the age range from 18 -24 months to 18- 60 months, giving owners an additional four and a half years to register their horse at the $210 member fee; and lowered the top price by $100 to $310 for those horses over five years old.

Registration Fee Schedule--Effective January 1, 2015        

Member          Non-Member

Under 6 months          $90                  $175

6 – 12 months             $100                $185

12 – 18 months           $125                $210

18 - 60 months            $210                $295

AMHA wants to help ensure every Morgan has a place in history. It is important to have breeding lines recorded to allow them to be perpetuated. Plus, AMHA wants to help Morgan owners have good ownership records for liability reasons.
