Using the breeder’s prefix in the horse’s name is preferred. This form, completed by the breeder, allows the person named use the breeder’s prefix. The use is limited to the horses specified by the breeder.

  • The ABA maintains a list of reserved prefixes.
  • When registering horses an ABA reserved breeder prefix as part of the horse’s name is required.
  • Reserved prefixes are unique and cannot be used by more than one proprietor. A proprietor is allowed to have only one prefix active at a time. By proprietor’s written request, a previously reserved prefix may be deactivated.
  • Prefixes must be at least 2 characters long. It is suggested that the overall prefix length be short to allow enough characters for the foal’s name. There is a maximum of 35 characters per horse name (including spaces and prefixes).
  • Submit 2 prefix choices; if the first choice is not accepted, the second choice will be evaluated.
  • You will receive a notice from the ABA Registry confirming the acceptance of your prefix.
  • When a farm is sold, exclusive use of its registered prefix does not automatically pass to the buyer. A letter requesting release of the registered prefix must be submitted to the ABA office by the prefix’s owner on record. Application for exclusive use of that prefix must then be made by the buyer.
