In order for a foal to be registered in the General Stud Book or Non-Thoroughbred Register, the sire and dam must first be registered as breeding animals with Weatherbys. Once a broodmare has been registered a foal registration form will be sent out each year to the owner of the mare.
If you require a broodmare registration form or would like to discuss the registration process please contact John Sharp or call 01933 440077.
Requirements for Broodmare Registration
DNA Sample - A DNA Sampling kit will be sent upon receipt of an application form if a DNA type is not already held. A sample will only normally be required for foreign mares or mares born before 1996.
Correctly Endorsed Passport for Imported Mares - all mares who have travelled to Great Britain or Ireland from another country will need their passport to be endorsed by the relevant Stud Book Authority. For more details on Imports and Exports please visit the International section.
Registering a Mare Not Previously Registered with Weatherbys in the Non-Thoroughbred Register
If you would like to register a mare as a foundation broodmare in the NTR, please contact John Sharp or call 01933 440077.
Broodmare Change of Ownership
If you acquire a mare that has already been registered as a broodmare and wish to continue breeding to Weatherbys registered stallions, please download, complete and return the form below with the mare’s passport and the indicated fee.
If you have acquired a registered broodmare but do not wish to continue breeding or do not intend to register progeny with Weatherbys, please visit our Change of Ownership/Duplicate Passport section.
Notification of Dead, Sold or Retired Broodmares
If you have received a foal registration form you may notify Weatherbys if a mare has died, been sold or has retired via the Internet Foal Service. You may also register a live foal or record a negative result using this service.
Broodmare notifications can also be made via email.
