In conjunction with the 2011 American Saddlebred Horse Association (ASHA) Annual Convention, two new Registry rule changes were adopted.

The following language was added to Registry Rule Section III. C:

If a stallion is sold and the seller retains frozen semen with ownership rights, a contract of sale or statement of the parties must be filed with the registry verifying that the seller has authority to sign breeder’s certificates and stallion service reports for foals conceived by the use of retained frozen semen. The contract must include the signatures of the buyer and the seller or their authorized agents.

Another change approved by the American Saddlebred Registry Board allows non-members to conduct business with the Registry for a transaction fee.  For example, if a non-member wants to register or transfer ownership of a horse, the non-member will be allowed to do so for a $50 transaction fee.
