International Andalusian & Lusitano Horse Association

The IALHA registry is dedicated to the preservation of the bloodlines of Spanish (Andalusian/PRE) and Portuguese (Lusitano/PSL) horses in the United States. This trust has been taken seriously since the founding of the first registry in the United States in 1966. The studbooks of the two mother countries were the foundation of that first registry. In 1995 the IAHA and AAHA were combined to create IALHA. At that time, ALL the horses in the studbooks of both registries were methodically verified to ensure that the studbook of the new IALHA Registry was absolutely accurate and served as a solid foundation.

Friesian Horse Association of North America – FHANA

The first step in making an informed purchase of a Friesian horse is to understand the organization and rules of the KFPS Studbook.  The Koninklijke Vereniging ‘Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek’ (KFPS) recognizes the Friesian Horse Association of North America (FHANA) as its sole representative on the North American and as such, FHANA facilitates the registration of KFPS horses.  The rules of any horse registry may be complex and the rules of the KFPS are no exception. There are several levels in the KFPS studbook which allows one to differentiate between the registry and status/grade levels of horses in order to achieve the KFPS’s primary goal of preserving and improving the Friesian horse.

The Friesian horse. There she is: fiery, strong, intelligent, and looking just a bit superior. As if she knows of her centuries-old heritage. As if she knows of the place she has in so many hearts.

The Koninklijke Vereniging “Het Friesch Paarden-Stamboek” (KFPS) is the oldest studbook in the Netherlands and promotes the interests of the Friesian horse in the broadest sense of the word. The KFPS has been realizing this by the meticulous registration of Friesian horses since the time it was founded in 1879. In addition, the KFPS has established a breeding program to maintain and further refine the unique characteristics of the Friesian horse.

The KFPS is an international studbook with at least 12.000 members of which almost half are located outside of the Netherlands. Friesian horses can be found on every continent in more than seventy countries. The registration of horses in other countries is done by the KFPS in Drachten through local associations affiliated with the KFPS. Friesian horses in both the Netherlands and other countries are inspected according to KFPS standards by jury members trained by the KFPS.

The interest in the Friesian horse has exploded in recent decades. As a result, the breed now has a population of 70,000 registered horses. More and more horse lovers are impressed by their regal bearing, their suitability for both recreational and professional equestrian sports, and their friendly character.
