About the ABRA
Founded in 1965, the mission of the American Buckskin Registry Association, Inc. is to collect, record and preserve the pedigrees & show records of Buckskin, Dun, Red Dun, Grulla, and Dunalino horses, miniature horses, ponies, and mules.
Equine of all breeds are eligible if they meet registration requirements. Even horses with an unknown pedigree may be registered according to their color eligibility alone through the Hardship Registry.
In 2017, the ABRA added the Buckskin Bred Program. This registry was added to register equines who do not meet Regular Registry requirements and are an offspring of buckskin, dun, red dun or grulla equine. Buckskin Bred classes have been added at both the World Show and regional club level giving those horses a place to shine in their own light.
ABRA is a progressive and innovative equine association dedicated to the growth and expansion of the registry and membership.
We offer many conveniences to our membership through our website, email, and social media networks.
We are an association that believes in providing the best customer experience whether it's online or in-person!
In the show pen, ABRA offers its Members recognition for outstanding achievements and establishes a record of performance with an impressive award system.
