The European Brabant Registry of America promotes transparent, healthy and safe breeding practices by requiring owners of all active European Brabant and European Brabant Stock breeding stallions to submit Leg Health Reports at ages two (2), six (6) and ten (10). If a stallion is >2 at the time of registration, a leg health report is required before the Certificate of Registration will be issued.

 

Leg Health Reports will not disqualify a stallion from breeding however, not submitting the mandatory Leg Health Reports will result in the embargo of their offspring’s registration until such time as the reports are filed with the Registry.

 

All Leg Health Reports must be performed and submitted to the EBRA between January 1st and December 31st of the year the stallion turns two (2), six (6) and ten (10). All delinquent Leg Health Reports will be subject to a penalty fee. Additionally, offspring of that stallion will not be registerable until such time as the report is filed with the Registry.

  • The stallion owner may download and print a copy of the EBRA Stallion Leg Health Survey from the website, or email their DVM provider a digital fillable form, so the attending veterinarian may complete the form during the exam. The DVM and the horse owner are required to sign the form. The EBRA may contact the attending veterinarian to verify the document’s authenticity. Falsifying of the Leg Health Report will result in the immediate termination of the stallion owner’s Membership. Horse owners may call the Registrar at +1 (724) 605-3680 and request a physical form be mailed to them at their expense.

    The completed survey must be scanned, or captured by smart phone device, and emailed, along with digital copies of the radiographs (DICOM images), to the Registrar@europeanbrabant.com. Alternatively, the original copy of the Leg Health Report may be physically mailed to the Registrar (407 Woodland Rd Mercer, PA 16137) and the attending veterinarian may send the digital copies of the radiographs via email to the Registry.

    The Registrar will send the stallion’s Leg Health Report and radiographs the EBRA’s appointed equine radiology specialist, who will provide the EBRA with an independent, unbiased, scientific analysis of the survey and radiographs, then issue an official report. Only the official report will be posted publicly to the EBRA website. The radiographs and exam form will be made available on the “Members Only” secured website for Members’ viewing; no sharing of the secure information is permitted. The specialist and the EBRA will continue to monitor and track each stallion’s leg health for the presence and/or progression of chronic progressive lymphedema (CPL), if any, over the stallion’s lifetime. In doing so, the Registry aims to have a better science-based understanding of the disease and its progression, while also promoting heathy breeding practices through the dissemination of information, which may be used by mare owners to make informed breeding decisions. As a Registry, our goal is to ensure healthy European Brabant offspring for years to come.

  • Required for all breeding stallions

    Optional for mares and geldings
