STAGBI & IHRA - January 2016

Following the IHRA's decision to move away from STAGBI and establish a new Irish Standardbred Stud Book in Ireland, STAGBI & IHRA have drawn up a working agreement to facilitate the process.

As of Feb 1st 2016, new registrations from Ireland should be presented to the IHRA and will thereafter be registered in the Irish Standardbred Stud Book. The dams of new registrations will also need to be transferred out of the STAGBI Stud Book into Irish Standardbred Stud Book. Owners are required to apply for mares to be transferred. In order to assist the process, there will be no fee for mares transferred before 31 Oct 2016. Thereafter the transfer fee will be £50.

Mating certificates issued for Stallions registered in STAGBI Stud Book or Irish Standardbred Stud Book will be honoured by either organisation. However, it is advocated that Irish owned stallions are transferred into Irish Standardbred Stud Book. There will be no fee for stallions transferred before 1 April 2016. Thereafter the transfer fee will be £50. Please note that stallion owners should apply to the Stud Book that holds the stallions registration for mating certificates.

Application for Transfer Forms for mares & stallions can be downloaded by clicking this link

Horses in Ireland that currently hold a STAGBI passport will remain valid, and until a horse is transferred into the Irish Standardbred Stud Book, transfers of ownership will need to be processed via STAGBI.

It is hoped that STAGBI and the IHRA via the new Irish Standardbred Stud Book can work together to maintain the integrity of the breeding of Standardbreds in Great Britain and Ireland.
