Western Australian Buckskin Association
Applications for Registration can only be accepted by a financial member of the Association. An Application for Membership may be lodged with a Registration Application.
Registration Application's are submitted on the prescribed form available to be downloaded on the Forms Page or by contacting the Secretary if you require forms to be posted out.
Horses eligible for Registration: Must conform to the Colour Code on the Colour Information Page. There is no preferred type, however, it is required that the horse or pony be a good representation of its breed. There is no height or age barrier on eligibility for registration. Horses registered with a recognized breed society are systematically accepted as long as they have the correct colour genetics.
All Classifications are initially assessed with photos to help identify colour. (The size of our state makes it difficult to visually classify horses.) Some horses may require a visual classification and/or a veterinary certificate of hereditary soundness. A DNA hair colour test may be requested of any horse whose colour is not clear.
Each application submitted must included: Signed Registration Application, the requested photo's, copies of all other registrations, Membership Application (new members) and prescribed Fees.
Colt Foal Recording: Any Buckskin and/or Dun, Cremello/Perlino or Cream Appendix under the age of 2 which conforms to the requirements of the Association. Colts must be sire or gelding registered before they turn 3 years.
