New Mexico Horse Breeders Association

Promoting the breeding of racing American Quarter Horses & Thoroughbreds in New Mexico since 1961

The New Mexico Horse Breeders' Association promotes the breeding and racing of American Quarter Horses and Thoroughbreds in the state. Established in 1961, this non-profit corporation has served as the backbone to an agricultural industry that is a long-standing tradition in New Mexico.

The NMHBA also serves as the official registry for New Mexico-bred horses. It also administers a legislative-mandated incentive fund, which encourages the expansion of the industry and improves the quality of performing athletes. More than ever, horses bred in New Mexico are competitive on a national level and are internationally recognized for their accomplishments.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS

  • Broodmares need to be registered by September 1 of the year they are bred for their foals to be registered without penalty. Once a broodmare is entered into the registry, she is registered for life. The mare must remain in the state of New Mexico for her entire pregnancy and foaling. All rules also apply to recipient mares. Current membership is required when registering any horses.
  • Stallions must be registered with the NMHBA before covering any mares in order for the resulting foals to be registered New Mexico-bred without any penalty.The penalty for each foal conceived prior to the registration of the stallion is $1,500. Current membership is required in order to register any horses. To register your stallion, contact the NMHBA office at (505) 262-0224.
  • If you have a New Mexico-bred that has been renamed or has been given a reissued set of registration papers, you need to get them restamped by the NMHBA office.
  • All horses age on January 1, 2016. Register your foals no later than December 31 in order to save money -- the older the foal, the higher the registration fee. Be sure your envelope is postmarked no later than December 31, 2015.
  • We will start accepting 2016 memberships on November 1, 2015. 
  • All stallions must be EVA tested and vaccinated before the breeding season. Stallions who have been vaccinated need to have a booster shot every year before the next breeding season. Forms will be mailed out for the veterinarians to fill out and sign.
