All NZWA registered mares are eligible to apply for classification inspection into the NZWA Studbook Mares registered with other recognised Warmblood registries or Thoroughbred, Anglo Arab and Arabs registries may apply for pedigree approval and classification into the NZWA Studbook. We do not register these horses as they are already registered. They must pass the classification inspection to gain entry into the NZWA studbook. Their progeny can then be registered with the NZWA,

Warmblood studbook mares from other WB registries that have already passed a classification inspection do not need to undergo a second inspection with the NZWA. They simply require pedigree approval into the NZWA studbook.
