Horse Registration

Registration provides official identification of the horse, which may be requested for equestrian competitions and/or breed classes by event/show committees. It may also identify a person as the owner/lessee of a horse. Please note the following in regards to registration with SPPHA NSW:

  • Applications for registration will only be accepted from financial members of SPPHA NSW.

  • There is no limit to the number of horses that may be registered except for junior members, where the limit is 2 horses.

  • Registration is for the life of the horse.

  • Registration issued by another Standardbred association is acceptable and additional registration with SPPHA NSW may not be required contact us to discuss.
