United States Dressage Federation Announces New Online Search and Improved Web Services for Horse Owners

Dressage Press Release

The United States Dressage Federation (USDF) has released a new online horse search. Horse owners and lessees can now access a complete report of all their horses registered with USDF, and print a one-page portfolio. This new tool will provide a comprehensive owner/lessee horse portfolio, complete with horse name, registration type (Horse Identification number [HID] or USDF Lifetime Registration), and owner/lessee membership information. Also included are effective dates of HID, Lifetime Registration, and owner/lessee membership.

This new tool is intended to be used for competition entry purposes, and it will also provide an easy way for owners/lessees to view their portfolio of horses on file with USDF. This portfolio includes all horses currently owned, but it will not include deceased horses or horses that have been transferred to another owner. To access this new search tool, visit

Individual horse records will still be available through the USDF horse registration search, and USDF encourages owners to assist USDF by supplying or correcting pedigree information. In order to ensure correct information, owners are asked to submit breed papers when registering their horses. USDF has enhanced the horse registration search by adding a color-coded system of identifying whether breed papers have been received by USDF. Owners can also send corrections via the Web site. To use the horse registration verification search, visit The printable online horse registration verification, available through this search, has also been improved to include a wallet-size horse membership card that can be cut out and used in place of the larger horse certificate.

USDF continues to improve its member services available on the Web site, by allowing members direct access to current USDF membership data. These convenient services not only allow members to access the information when they need it, but they also allow members to view data that USDF has on file, inform the office of any errors, and assist USDF in ensuring the accuracy of its data.
