AQHA and Team on Exclusive Certified Pedigree Program

American Quarter Horse Association

The American Quarter Horse Association and, one of the largest horse marketplaces on the Internet, today announced a partnership to launch a first-of-its-kind certified pedigree program. The initiative allows customers selling registered American Quarter Horses on to quickly and easily post an official pedigree certified by AQHA in just moments.

The American Quarter Horse Association is the world’s largest single-breed equine registry and membership organization with more than 4.5 million American Quarter Horses registered worldwide. The American Quarter Horse Association’s mission is to record and preserve the pedigrees of American Quarter Horses while maintaining the integrity of the breed, and to provide beneficial services for its members which enhance and encourage American Quarter Horse ownership and participation.

"American Quarter Horses comprise more than one third of our horse database, and this partnership with one of the largest horse associations worldwide will provide peace of mind to customers looking for the most accurate pedigree information available," president Aaron Bromagem said.

For a $10 fee, all registered sellers will have access to the AQHA pedigree. Customers posting American Quarter Horses on will have the option to input each horse’s registration number to tap into AQHA's horse database, which produces American Quarter Horses’ three-generation, watermarked pedigrees. The pedigrees will provide customers a better understanding of a horse’s bloodline, which is crucial to helping them make informed purchasing decisions based on their specific needs.

Buyers searching horses on will see the certified AQHA gold pedigree icon next to the animals’ classified ad. Upon clicking the ad, customers can view the horse’s bloodline, with proper names, years and registration numbers of the animal’s ancestors.
