Leased Breeding Stock Policy

The CAHR does not recognize leases and upon application for registration, the RECORDED OWNER(S) of the dam must sign in the appropriate sections. In order to be shown as the BREEDER, an Assignment of Breeder Designation, along with the appropriate fee, may be filled out and submitted along with the registration application, however this only applies to who will be shown as the foal’s breeder and does not entitle the bearer to ownership of the foal. The recorded owner of the dam at the time of foaling will need to sign the Foaling section and if a transfer is to take place they must also sign the Transfer of Ownership section at the bottom of the registration application or provide a proper bill of sale. A transfer fee will apply.

The CAHR does not recognize leases. Upon application for registration, the RECORDED OWNER(S) of the dam must sign in the appropriate sections. In order (for who? Dam’s owner or foal registrar?) to be shown as the BREEDER, an Assignment of Breeder Designation, along with the appropriate fee, may be filled out and submitted along with the registration application – however this only applies to who will be shown as the foal’s breeder and does not entitle the bearer to ownership of the foal. The Recorded Owner of the Dam at the time of foaling will need to sign the Foaling section and if a transfer is to take place they must also sign the Transfer of Ownership section at the bottom of the registration application or provide a proper bill of sale. A transfer fee will apply.

The recorded owner of the dam at the time of foaling is always considered the first owner of the foal. A Breeder Designation allows the leasee (or anyone) to be designated as the Breeder on the Foal’s papers. The foal must then be Transferred from the Recorded Owner of the Dam to the Leasee for the Leasee to be shown as owner of the foal.
