Tennuvian Horse Registration Requirements and Procedures

You Want to Register Your Tennuvian Horse?

Should I register my horse with the THR?.

Officially founded in 1991 in Colorado by Paula Bonser. She maintains the registrations of Tennuvians that have been submitted. Many Tennuvians exist without being registered and there are many breeders of Tennuvians in USA and Canada. This website is to inform those owners/breeders that there is a registry that is economical to track Tennuvian Horses and verify their parentage. Tennuvians would be excellent horses in Equine Therapy due to their smoothness for handicapped riders without the jarring of the trot of other equines. Excellent for persons with back problems and neurological problems to work on balance and posture. It is important that all Tennuvians are registered for a central area to track these horses and to be a source of breeders, owners and horses for sale.

Canadian horse owners must signify that they are sending U.S. funds when registering their Canadian horses. This applies to other countries, also.

ANY AND ALL FUNDS APPLCIABLE TO THIS SITE SHALL BE MADE PAYABLE TO PAULA BONSER. FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN THE DELAY IN ISSUING YOUR REGISTRATION CERTIFICATE.

When a horse is registered, you have the freedom to enter in high-level breed competitions, like at national level and such. Stallions can be entered in a stud book for their breed. Their offspring can be registered only if both parents were registered and of the same breeds as described in the THR application. It makes a horse easier to sell. There are many reasons why you should register a horse, and there really aren't any negative reasons NOT to register a horse with the THR.

A horse under a certain number of hands (a unit of measurement) is called a pony. The correct term for a baby horse is called a foal. If the foal is a male then it is a colt and if it is a female it is a filly. Horses over 14hh hands or 144cm are classified as a horse and cannot enter pony classes. If it is under 14hh hands (144cm) then it is classifed a pony. There are some horses and ponies that are very close to the 14hh limit and they can become a horse or a pony by shoeing or hoof trimming.
