ABRA Registration 

An ABRA equine is found in all types of equine, and for this reason, all types are eligible for registration. ABRA registers light horses, draft horses, mules, ponies, and minis. Separate registries exist for each breed type. An ideal buckskin is an equine that most closely represents the ideals of its particular breed type.

 

ABRA registers light equines. Equines are typically 56 inches (14–16 hands (1.42–1.63m) at four (4) years of age.

 

ABRA registers Miniature equines, Ponies, and Mules in a separate section of the registry. Miniature equines, Ponies, and Mules may not compete in equine classes, but they will follow the rules and regulations as outlined in the equine section for their respective classes.

Miniature equines measuring 38” or less at the last mane hair will be put in the Miniature Equine Division.  Equines under 56” (14 hands) at the wither will be put in the Pony Division.  Draft horses are usually 16–18 hands (1.63–1.83m).
