Composite dilute registration

Please note that composite dilutes (horses and ponies that carry two or more different dilutions ie dun & silver) may now be registered in all the registers for which they carry a dilution gene WITH THE EXCEPTION OF SOLID PALOMINOS which MUST BE a chestnut horse carrying one copy of cream and NO OTHER DILUTION GENES to be eligible for registration as a solid palomino**.  To facilitate this, simply tick the relevant boxes on the registration application, include the additional composite dilute registration fees and provide DNA proof as required.  Note that all composite dilutes have a PRIMARY registration, which is designated as per this Regulation - if you choose not to composite dilute register this is the registration they will be issued with.  The relevant register is written on the top of the registration certificate.

For instance, a buckskin silver (A- E- Crcr Z-) is registered as a silver FIRST but may also be registered as a buckskin and is eligible to be shown in both silver and buckskin classes.

** Solid palominos with a silver parent are required to be DNA tested for silver and must return a negative test result to be eligible for registration as a palomino.  If they carry silver they are registered as silvers and are not eligible for palomino registration.  Other dilutions are generally visible hence DNA testing for those dilutions is not required UNLESS requested by the Registrar.
