It is a pleasure for the Holsteiner Verband to register your foal and/or mare.

Please note, that the stallion owner has to sign the covering part. In the case of Embryo Transfer, please be sure that there is a signature of a Veterinarian. You will find some helpful instruction in completing the form in the Foal Form section below. Send it via email to
After the Certificate of Birth has been received, we will send you the registration documents (diagram, documents for the DNA testing) from Germany via email. You will receive the microchip from our office of the North American Breeding District by postal service.

If you are not a member of Holsteiner Verband, please download the membership form found on this page, and make sure that your mare is activated in the breeding year.
