Registration / Transfer / Leases / DNA verification
Digital Horse Registry
The American Shire Horse Association migrated to the Digital Horse Registry application in 2019, which allows members to complete all services online, pay online, and receive real-time assistance on open orders. The ASHA encourages use of online services via the Digital Horse Registry application, however we gladly accept mail-in request with all required information, signatures, and fees remitted with the services requested. Below are link, tutorials and instructions for each of the services offered by the ASHA. If you have any questions or concerns, please call the office during business hours.
Submit your Shire or Shire Sport horse registration via the American Shire Horse Association DNA verified Registry or by mail.
Transfers require the current owner to complete and sign an Application for Transfer of Ownership (located on the back of the Registration Form).
Registration Rules cover how the ASHA views the lease of horses. Please read the rules before entering into a lease.
The ASHA has used DNA verification to register horses since 1994. Once you pay for the service, a printable form allows you to mail the DNA directly to the lab.
