UK Registration Tour

Elite Foals UK Registration Tour

The Elite Foals Registration Tour was developed to simplify the process of registering foals in the UK, for both studbooks and breeders, while encouraging quality sport horse breeding in Britain.

The tour allows breeders to benchmark their horses against others, provides feedback and comments from top judges, and creates professional, quality photographs and videos. Helping you to both improve and refine your breeding programme and effectively market your foals.

Bringing together several different studbooks, both British and European, a variety of foals can be registered at once - this is a unique opportunity for you to register all of your foals on one day, with the option to choose the right studbook for each foal. 

The tour is supported by the AES, SHB(GB), Breeders Elite, SPSS, WBS(UK), KWPN, Oldenburg, British Hanoverian, and British Rhineland studbooks.

Impartial, expert advice on choosing a studbook is freely available prior to the tour, helping you to find the studbook that best suits you and your foal. There is an in-depth guide available online, and the Elite Foals team is on hand to help you make the right choice.

Professional runners present all of the mares and foals, ensuring that your mare and foal are shown at their very best, while also creating a level playing field for everyone. Whether you are a small- or large-scale breeder, the Elite Foals Registration Tour is for you!

The tour connects breeders, trainers, and riders, with many international buyers attending both the regional and national events, and several foals being sold abroad after their success on the tour. 

The foals also compete for qualifcation to a national championship in September, where substantial prize money is on offer. The prize fund awarded in 2018 was in excess of £40,000, with £5,000 to the champion foal in each discipline, rewarding British breeders for their tireless dedication and commitment.

The National Final is a fantastic gala evening, with the best foals from each region competing for the top prize. Foals travelled from across the country to Moreton Morrell College, where owners of competing foals were invited to a champagne reception and gala dinner.
