Welcome to the North American Studbook
NAS was established with the single purpose of assisting the North American sport horse breeder to better compete in the domestic and international marketplace. It was created by a small group of seasoned breeders and professionals who have a keen insight into the hurdles facing North American breeders, coupled with a strong understanding of the European means to achievement.
By employing the success-proven strategies that have fueled the European rise to its preeminent state in the sport horse world and adapting these standards to the unique advantages and challenges of our market, the NAS brand has become synonymous with quality and performance success with both breeders and competitors.
NAS is also dedicated to support the industry at large by helping all horses to have positive ID. We offer comprehensive solutions in our Auxiliary and Certificate of Pedigree Books for horses in need of positive ID or that are not eligible in the main book.

NAS approves Beau VD Fruitkorf Z by Berlin out of a Clinton dam and owned by Derek Petersen. This elegant and well behaved stallion scored a 9 in the free jumping test and finished with an overall score of 8.28, earning a First Premium status. His results under saddle are already exceptional. We look forward to his offspring next year. Congratulations Derek!
We would like to give Derek and his family our most sincere regrets for his loss of this magnificent animal. We are glad to know that a couple of foals are on the way. They will be very special.
NAS recommends for the 2017 foals to be microchipped at the time of registration.
It will be mandatory for all horses in 2018.

The pillars of the NAS brand are four-fold
Registry standards of quality are assessed by top sport horse breeders, judges and professional competitors. While these standards are consistently and stringently applied, the NAS assesses each horse as an individual so that quality breeding stock is not overlooked. Standards encompass not only bloodlines, conformation and athleticism of the horse, but also the performance career and progeny of the horse.
A major function of the NAS is the educational support of the North American breeder. Whether a Keuring, a sponsored-seminar, a sport horse auction or the website, the NAS ensures that each is rich with information and experience so that learning continuously expands for all members.
The NAS will gather, compile and assimilate data and information for members’ registered horses. In the current North American market, the link between the breeder and the adult horse they bred is often broken and information is lost. One of the primary goals of the NAS is to foster a stronger link so that breeders’ are able to track the horses they have bred.
In 2018, Microchiping will be mandatory for all new registered NAS horse.
NAS serves mare and stallion owners in a friendly, clear and most importantly, collaborative manner without bias or politics.
