EUROPEAN BRABANT STUDBOOK

 

In keeping with the Registry’s mission of maintaining European breed standards, the European Brabant Studbook designation is reserved for approved, >93.75% (15/16) purebred horses. These may be imported horses from the EBRA’s list of approved European studbooks, offspring of purebred EBRA registered parents, >93.75% horses registered with the Belgian Draft Horse Corporation of America, Canadian Belgian Horse Association, or American Brabant Association who have passed a Breed Standard Evaluation, and offspring from approved Qualified Mares and purebred registered stallion pairings.

 

Note: No evaluations for 100% purebred horses are required for registration and >93.75% offspring of Approved Qualified Mares pared with an ERBA registered purebred stallion or a documented 100% European Brabant stallion are also exempt from Breed Standard Evaluations.

 

Following the review of supportive documents, horses with passports from the approved registries will be considered 100% purebred. The European Brabant Registry of America reserves the right to assign a lesser rating if the traceable heritage does not support a 100% rating. 

Once the applicant’s parentage has been confirmed, those who are proven 100% will automatically be recognized in the European Brabant Studbook. Those who are less than 100%, but greater than 93.75%, must undergo a Breed Standard Evaluation. Those applicants who pass the Breed Standard Evaluation are then recognized in the European Brabant Studbook. Should the rating fall below 93.75%, the horse will be recognized within the European Brabant Stock Studbook.

 

Note: Applicants applying for registration of a horse whose parent, or parents, are not EBRA registered, must provide a copy of existing registration documentation and/or passport for the non-EBRA sire and/or dam, along with a breeding certificate that substantiates the offspring’s breeding. In the event a breeding certificate is not available, the applicant may provide a DNA parentage test that proves the offspring’s sire and dam. 

Note: The European Brabant Registry of America reserves the right to assign a lesser rating if the traceable heritage does not support a >93.75% rating. Should the rating fall below the purebred threshold of 15/16, the horse will be considered for recognition within the European Brabant Stock Studbook.
