The purpose of the WWHA Alternative Registration is to provide an amnesty opportunity for all owners of unregistered Walking Horses with lost or missing bloodlines to register their horses so they can document and track the horse’s performance and progeny. WWHA recognizes that hardships with other registries and within a horse’s life can result in lost records and lost heritage for a Walking Horse. The Alternative Registry is designed to return lost horses to registration status for the purpose of competing or breeding. Alternative Registry horses will be eligible for point accruement and may produce registerable stock, if bred to a full blooded Walking Horse. Alternative registry horses are required to pass a DNA breed test, or follow an appeals process should the horse fail the DNA breed test.
