This program was designed by ISHR to give people whose equines are registered with another "spotted" registry/association extra recognition by registering their equine with ISHR.
A person shall receive FREE MEMBERSHIP for (1) one year PLUS a $5.00 discount on the registration fee! (if already a paid, current member of ISHR the free membership does not apply)
To join this program, a person must send in a membership application along with the ISHR registration application ALONG with a copy of the "other" spotted registration certificate. The membership and registration applications must be sent in at same time. A person can register as many qualified equines as they desire throughout their free membership year (as long as a copy of the other certificate accompanies each application form for registration).
This program was established to give owners of (10) or more "spotted" equines a substantial registration discount. All equines must be registered at the same time to recieve the discount in registration fees. Below is a breakdown of how much a spotted horse owner can save in registration fees!
LARGE HERD DISCOUNT:
10 to 19 horses registered as a group at one time = $15.00 ea.
20 or more registered as a group at one time = $12.00 ea.
SMALL HERD DISCOUNT:
4 to 9 horses registered as a group at one time = $17.00 ea.
PLUS you will recieve a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP with the large Herd Discount! A year free membership with the "Small Herd Discount".
The savings in registration fees are all quite substantial! It saves to register horse herds with ISHR!
