Icelandic Horse Registry

 

The United States Icelandic Horse Congress maintains the U.S. Registry of Icelandic Horses in accordance with FEIF rules.  

A horse conceived and born in the U.S. can be registered if it is of pure Icelandic blood as verified by its pedigree and its sire and dam are registered; the breeding conforms to USIHC breeding standards; and the Registry has a Stallion Report for the sire for the year in which the horse was conceived. The horse to be registered must be blood-typed and/or DNA if it is a mare or stallion. In addition, the horse must be blood-typed and/or DNA and the blood types and/or DNA of its sire and dam, if located in the U.S., must be on record with the Registry.

A horse imported into the U.S. can be registered if it is of pure Icelandic blood as verified by its pedigree; it is registered by the government of Iceland or another registry recognized by FEIF.
