National Quarter Horse Registry ~ Since 1956

What are the sections?

In order to provide registration for a wider span of bloodlines, and still keep the quarter horse desired "type", in 2002 the N.Q.H.R administration and members voted to expand the registry into sections with which to separate outside breeding stock and full bred Horses as well as offer registration privileges to those who would not otherwise be able to register there appropriately typed but open bred horses. The official sections of the N.Q.H.R are:
