The Canadian Horse Breeders Association was granted a federal charter
and was incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act. Its mandate is to
monitor registration, identification, and the keeping of the stud book
for Canadian horses. Additionally, it looks after grading. The
maintenance of the genealogy books has been entrusted to the Canadian
Livestock Records Corporation.
Only members of the CHBA may register their Canadian horses. For more information, please contact the CHBA.
The Association, headquartered in Québec, has members across North America and is administered by a Board consisting of nine (9) directors: six (6) from Québec, two (1) from Ontario, and one (2) to represent Western Canada, the Maritimes and the United States. The day to day operations are governed by the Statutes and Regulations of the Association. These are available online or at the CHBA.
