REGISTRATION PICTURES HELPFUL HINTS


Having the correct photos will expedite the registration process so you can get your papers sooner.  (See below for examples.)

When submitting photographs of your horse, please remember to:

* Use a 35 mm camera or high quality digital camera. Avoid instant cameras because the photos tend to over expose or fade.

* If you use a digital camera, you can send us the pictures burned to a CD.

* Take photos on a sunny day with the sun behind the photographer.

* Always send one picture you want placed on the papers, & the four basic views - front, rear, left side and right side.

* Position the horse with his legs apart so all four feet can be seen in each of the photographs.

* The photo to be added to the registration certificate should be either a 3/4 front view or side view (like shown below) but must clearly show the front of the face and all four feet. If someone is helping you, make sure they are out of this photo.

* Do not saddle or blanket your horse and make sure the horse is clean of mud and debris.

* The horse being photographed should be the only horse in the photo.

* Take photos on level ground - steer clear of tall grass and other obstacles which can block the view of the horse.

* Pull back the forelock so head markings can be seen.

* Take separate, close-up photos of unusual markings and markings that fall out of the normal marking area.

* Be aware of the background. A solid background is best for light colored horses, while a dark horse shows up best with a lighter back

* Submitting the correct photos will help in the registration process so you'll get your papers sooner.  Good, clear photos also will help verify markings and may avoid the need for a physical inspection.

Five basic views are needed - front, rear, left side, right side and a three-quarter front view shot, which will be the photo used on your registration certificate.
