Scottish Sports Horse is an Open Studbook therefore any sports horse/
pony foal regardless of parentage or pedigree can be registered
(passported or over stamped) by the SSH in accordance with EU directives.
Foals will be entered into one of the foal sections outlined below
depending on its parentage outlined in the SSH Guidelines.

also sired by a EU/WBFSH licensed or approved stallion. Foals must
have a minimum of three generation pedigree.

Basic Register For foals that do not require an
SSH breed society passport e.g. animals with unknown breeding and
non breeding stock. No pedigree will be recorded. Foals registered
with a basic passport cannot be presented at an SSH Grading.
