OF YOUR FRIESIAN
Friesian horses are registered with the
KFPS in the Netherlands with an additional registration certificate
being provided by the ANZFHS. For a Friesian to be referred to as
'studbook registered' it MUST be registered with the KFPS. In basic terms there are three
different levels within the KFPS Registration system. The Main
Register, B Book 1 and B Book 2.
The majority of countries around the
world simply use the KFPS Main Register though in special cases, due to
isolation, lack of access to Studbook Stallions, restrictive numbers
of members and horses etc. the KFPS have approved the use of
non-Studbook Stallions for breeding and this has resulted in the need
to include registration categories to accommodate the registration of
foals from these breedings. Foals from these breedings are registered in either B Book1 or B Book 2, depending on the registration
status of parents and whether or not the stallion has a Breeding
Permit. You should visit the
pages for additional information.
information about how to read registration papers, colour coding of
registration papers and what registry foals can be entered into based
on registration of parents will be added shortly.
