Registration and Membership Applications


A DA NCCD is a dilute horse or pony (solid or non-solid) that carries a greying gene OR a palomino that does not pass colour standards for solid palomino registration (previously Breeding Purposes Only register).

These dilutes may be either:

  • grey dilutes that do not have a DA registered dilute parent OR
  • the grey dilute progeny of a DA registered dilute mare or stallion.
  • palominos that fail classification on COLOUR for solid dilute registration (note - non-solid dilutes that are palomino are not required to pass classification for DA NSD registration.)
