How can I register my foal?
Registering your foal on our website is easy and straightforward.
I have registered my foal online, what happens next?
After you have registered your foal with Studbook Zangersheide vzw you will receive an invoice from HorseID. After your payment has been received by HorseID, the foal needs to be identified by the identifier of your choice. As soon as we have received all the required information (microchip number, sketching, positive DNA result, ...) via your identifier we will print your passport and send it to you.
The procedure for foal registration outside Belgium depends on the member state in question. Generally, the foal can be easily registered via the website of Zangersheide. As soon as the foal has been registered via the website you will receive a sketching form. The veterinarian is required to complete the sketching form of the foal and to send us the microchip number together with the hair samples for DNA verification.
Another option for foal registration is to ask the veterinarian to download the Zangersheide Horse Identity App and complete the foal sketch on the App. Following that, hair samples of both dam and foal have to be sent to Zangersheide for DNA verification.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our staff. They are familiar with the guidelines of individual countries and will smoothly guide you through the registration procedures.
How long does it take before I receive my passport?
Studbook Zangersheide vzw takes every effort to deliver your passport as soon as possible. The average processing time depends on several factors; the identifier, the DNA verification in the laboratory, printing of the passport… We generally need a period of four weeks from the moment we have received all the data.
Do I need a stud service certificate to register my foal?
No, you don’t. A stud service certificate is no longer necessary because Studbook Zangersheide vzw carries out parentage verification of every foal via DNA analysis.
The dam/sire of my foal is not a Zangersheide horse, can I still register my foal with your Studbook?
Of course you can! As a rule, every foal whose parents have been registered (and for stallions have been approved by) in a WBFSH-recognised studbook can be registered with Studbook Zangersheide vzw. This is on the condition that both parents were bred for the sport or can submit sport results. In case of doubt please get in touch with our studbook office.
Why should I opt for a Zangersheide passport?
A Zangersheide passport is a quality label for your foal and horse. It is evidence that your foal has been correctly identified and that its DNA profile is correct. It also offers you a chance of winning one of the numerous bonuses for breeders and you are entitled to take part in the various Zangersheide events.
What do I have to do when the horse changes ownership?
In case of a change in ownership you can send the horse’s passport to our studbook office in Lanaken, together with a sale statement from the last-known owner on the passport. In case this document is not in your possession we will get in touch with the last-known owner on your behalf.
What do I have to do when I have lost my passport?
You have to apply for a duplicate passport via HorseID.
You can apply for a duplicate passport via our studbook office.

My mare is not pregnant, what happens next?
