News and reports about the Hispano-Árabe in Spain
Official web site:

The UEGHá retains full control and management of the Stud Book for the Hispano-Árabe, and Spain has not, nor at this point in time every delegated that authority or stud book daughter status to any other country. At present there are insufficient numbers of Hispano-Árabe horses outside of Spain to warrant the establishment of UEGHá agents for the breed (as opperated by ANCCE for the management of PRE horses). The UEGHá is expanding it's web site to hold a section in English for English speaking Hispano-Árabe horse breeders to access all the information and forms they require to directly apply for Stud Book inscription of their Hispano-Árabe horses. A similar section will be included for European countries.

Hispano-Árabe Horses for Sale in Spain

The UEGHá website carries listings of its member's Hispano-Árabe stock available for sale and more recently has added details of stallions available for stud services.
(Nb. for AI the stallion has to be calificardo approved)

While there are reputable horse dealers trading in Spanish stock, unfortunately there has also been a surge of not so reputable dealers selling horses without papers or proof of sale. For this reason I urge buyers to make use of the sellers promoted through the UEGHá and those recommended by experienced Hispano-Árabe horse breeders genuinely supporting the breed. Without doubt there are some excellent un-papered Hispano-Árabe horses but if you wish to breed from your horse as a Hispano-Árabe then you must purchase horses inscribed in the Stud Book:

All horses in the Main Register can be found here along with confirmation if they are approved for breeding (if they have been submitted for grading), and details of any prodgeny. Horses denoted as RA on their papers are in the Auxiliary Register approved for breeding with Main Register Hispano-Árabe and will not appear on this online database.
