Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry

Shagya-Arabian Semen Importation Guidelines

Shagya-Arabian Stallion Shagya III

Always looking to the future and quality of the Shagya-Arabian in the US and Canada, the Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry (PShR) is working to expand and diversify the bloodlines available on the North American continent.

Other than the purchase and importing of breeding stock, the most economical alternative is the use of frozen semen to incorporate new bloodlines into the US and Canadian genepool. The PShR wants to encourage and help facilitate the communication between stallion and mare owners in North America and the world-wide Shagya-Arabian community by initiating a communication network on our website free of charge.


Free Performance Shagya-Arabian Registry Stallion Service Network:

The PShR is offering a free service to recognized ISG Shagya-Arabian or Purebred Arabian stallions approved for Shagya-Arabian breeding from around the world. Communication and networking are key to the sharing of bloodlines to ensure the quality of the breed for all ISG members.

To enable the communication between the mare and stallion owners the PShR are encouraging Shagya-Arabian and purebred Arabian stallion owners to list their stallion on our PShR website free of charge.

We will have two divisions:

  1. Horses with frozen semen already processed per the USDA importation criteria and ready to be shipped to the USA: Link to stallions
  2. Stallion owners interested in processing semen for the USA if enough frozen breeding doses were purchased.

While the PShR is providing contact and horse information for networking the PShR is not responsible for the purchasing, shipping or storage of acquired breeding doses. The PShR will not negotiate for either party or receive a commission.

All owners with ISG approved Shagya-Arabian or purebred Arabian stallions wishing to be listed can contact the PShR Registrar. The PShR has a form for stallion owners to complete. We will be happy to help you with the English. The form and pictures can be emailed to PShR Registrar: Linda Rudolphi, 281 Ruby Road, Noble, IL 62868,
