Step 3 - lodging the forms

When you have downloaded the forms, fill them out paying particular attention to the information that is required - there is a checklist included with the registration applications to assist you with this.

Applications for registration of stock where parentage is known must be accompanied by PROOF OF BREEDING by way of either a service certificate, copy of other breed registration certificate or statutory declaration IF you want parentage listed on the certificate.  The same applies for geldings where parentage is known.  Failure to supply this information means your horse will be recorded with NA sire and dam.  Our advice and assistance are free so please email us if you are unsure about anything.

Lodging copies by email

Scan and email your paper forms once completed and all supporting documentation to the email address on the form (dilutestreasurer@gmail.com).  Include a copy of your PayPal receipt for payment of fees.

Lodging an interactive word document

Once you have completed the document, SAVE it to your hard drive and then email it and all supporting documentation to the email address on the form (dilutestreasurer@gmail.com).  Include a copy of your PayPal receipt for payment of fees.

Lodging an interactive online form

Simply complete the online form then click on the submit button at the bottom.  Use the supplied links on the page to submit your supporting documentation, including a copy of your PayPal receipt for payment of fees.

If you wish to show in the interim, please advise us and we will issue you with a showing certificate, which must be discarded upon receipt of an official registration certificate.
