The ACPS is now offering registration for Halfbred stallions and Connemara Sport Horses. Under the new registration rules Halfbred stallions will be permitted full registration and ¼ Connemaras, to be called Connemara Sporthorses, will be eligible for registration. Horses or ponies qualified for registration will include:
- Halfbred stallions (must have one registered purebred parent)
- The offspring of Halfbred Stallion x Halfbred Mare = Connemara Sport Horse (one or both parents must be registered)
- The offspring of Halfbred Stallion or Halfbred Mare x non-Connemara = Connemara Sport Horse (the Halfbred parent must be registered)
- The registration opportunity will end at ¼ Connemara, meaning the offspring of ¼ Connemara cannot be registered through the ACPS unless they are bred back to a registered Purebred or Halfbred Connemara.
- Registration fees will be $75 for Halfbred or Connemara Sport Horse Mares or Geldings and $250 for Halfbred Stallions.
