registered in an EU studbook
( AES, KWPN, NRPS
or other EU studbook) will
in the BP Studbook.
Stallions must have sufficient quality for the basis of our breeding objectives
that have been approved do not have to be re-inspected.
have a Friesian Foalbook (vb) mare, Can I take her to the keuring to be entered
into the BP Studbook?
all mares that represent the breeding goals of the BP Studbook, may be keured to
be entered into the BP Studbook.
Naturally, BPS would like information from
these mares for future data in our breeding programs.
Mares that have
titles/predicates in other studbooks keep those predicates in the BPS, but may
to increase their title with the BPS.
have a pinto mare that is registered in another registry, Can I register her in
All horses that are registered by another European Studbook, can be accepted
into the BP Studbook.
have a mare without papers, can she register with the BPS?
of which ancestry is not proven, may be entered into the BP Studbook under VoorBook
1 until 2015,
they have been inspected. Once a year a day is set aside for such
a Tinker be registered in the BPS?
a BP horse is a combination of Friesian and Warmblood. The minimal
Friesian blood is 25% and a maximum is 87.50%
a Friesian Stallion be registered?
preference goes to Approved Friesian stallions, Pinto or BP approved stallions.
But the BPS money like other studbooks,
the more popular the stallion, the
better the selection. Foals of an unapproved Friesian
Stallion would be
registered in the Voorbook 3, after DNA testing.
I register a Pinto Stallion?
Stallions that have been approved by an acknowledged Studbook, can be entered
into our studbook.
The BPS recognizes nearly all studbooks that keep accurate
reliable records. The foals from un approved
stallions can be registered in the
Voorbook 3, 2, or 1.
I have to do DNA testing?
Yes, every horse which is bred, must do a DNA profile. This is to
accurately show the mother,
father and descendents.
small cost is an investment in the future. All approved stallions are
already DNA tested and thus
the cost is for the Mare-E45
bred a foal that was born without Pinto markings?
to worry, a black foal can be used for its breeding lines, and be
registered and take part in the keurings.
