!!! SALE OF NASPR MERCHANDISE in Ontario!!!
Thank you Glennis Beck of Whitby for having taken over the sale of the NASPR merchandise!
Glennis will have our fabulous jackets, golf shirts, caps, etc. available for sale at the shows, and she also takes orders via her email account firstname.lastname@example.org.
As per agreement with the United States Equestrian Federation (USEF), NASPR registered foals beginning with the foal crop of 2015, will automatically become USEF life recorded as part of the regular NASPR registration fee. The NASPR is pleased to offer this added value to our members.
The partnership between the NASPR and USEF will allow both organizations access to accurate data for both pedigree and performance. The NASPR will provide USEF with full breeding data on each foal and, in return, the USEF will provide the NASPR with a USEF life recording number for each foal that will be noted on NASPR registration papers. In addition the owner will also receive a life recording certificate from the USEF.

Rosedale Top Cat – the First Foundation Sire of the NASPR in Canada
Sporthorse and sportpony breeding in Europe bestows great importance upon the heritability of the characteristics of stallions to future generations. Some of the stallions have shown themselves to be extremely pre-potent and have become very famous. They are recognized and honored as the foundation sires of a breed.
The NorthAmerican Sportpony Registry continues with this practice to honor today a sportpony stallion that has proven himself to be a true foundation sire.
Congratulations, Darlene Morton and family, for this exceptional stallion! The NorthAmerican Sportpony Registry is very proud to honor him as its First Foundation Sire in Canada and is looking forward to many more of his offspring in the coming years.
Makuba – the First Foundation Sire of the NASPR in the United States
Makuba (Maior Domus/Gigi) has truly earned the award as being the first Foundation Sire of the NorthAmerican Sportpony Registry! Klaus Biesenthal of Bell Oaks Farm, Freeport – IL, is his proud owner and breeder. He imported the young stallion from Germany in 1990.
So far the impressive Sportpony Stallion has produced well over 100 first premium foals. His offspring is highly sought after. Conformation, appearance, and temperament combined with great motivation: ‘Yes, this is a Makuba’!
Many of his offspring perform as successfully as their Sire. Some of them excel in particular in the dressage and driving disciplines. Take Makuba’s son Markus (a NASPR licensed Sportpony stallion) who qualified for the FEI Driving Pony Championships that are taking place on the last October weekend in France. Good luck!
