Registering a Morab

All Morab horses born after Jan 1, 2003 require DNA and parent verification.

DNA testing of your Morab is an additional fee $40.00 members; $50.00 non-members. After the fee is paid a DNA test kit will be sent directly to you.

For parent verification:

Already DNA tested registered Morgan Sire/Dam

  • No additional fee.
  • You do not need to do anything the Morgan Registry will send the DNA results directly to the International Morab Registry.

Already DNA tested registered Arabian Sire/Dam

  • $10.00 fee.
  • A request should be made to the Arabian Registry to provide the DNA results to the International Morab Registry. For your convenience a form is available to assist you with this request.
  • Click Here or request one from our registrar.

Already DNA tested registered Morab Sire/Dam

Registering a Morab Gelding or Spayed Mare

  • If the DNA for the Sire and Dam is on file with the International Morab Registry, you may chose to not have a DNA test done on the Morab Gelding or Spayed Mare. Then the $40.00 DNA fee would not be charged for your registration. To take advantage of this price break you must complete a DNA Gelding/Spayed Mare Waiver Form and submit it to the IMR.

Registering an Older Morab

  • An application, photographs and fee should be submitted.
  • If the breeder or stallion owner is unavailable, please complete those sections as fully as you can.
  • If the horse is already registered with one of the other registries (International Arabian Horse Asssn., Morab Horse Assn., Purebred Morab Horse Assn, Canadian Morab Horse Assn., North American Morab Horse Assn. or American Morab Horse Assn.) please submit a copy of the registration certificate.
  • The International Morab Registry may require additional testing should there be reasonable doubt of parentage or pedigree.

Hardship

  • If you are having difficulty obtaining any of the requirements for registration there may be an alternative.
  • Contact the Registrar to discuss your situation: imba@morab-imba.com

Additional Information

  • Foals are first registered to the person who owned the mare at the time of birth, unless a lease statement is filed.
  • If you leased the sire or dam please submit a copy of the lease agreement or a statement with the sire or dam name and registration number and indicate that the horse was leased to you and signed and dated by the owner of the sire or dam.
  • Postmark date is used for dating purposes on all registration applications and transfers. It is the seller’s obligation to transfer registration papers.
  • If a contract sale is involved, the contract sale dates must be indicated.
  • IMR will accept the horse colors recognized by the Arabian and Morgan horse registries.

Register your Farm Prefix with the International Morab Registry

  • No Charge
  • A Prefix is exclusively issued to any IMBA Breeder member for use as the Prefix to the horse names used by that breeder. The prefix makes your Morabs distinct and quickly associates a Morab with your personal breeding program.
