Welcome to the American Roan Horse Association

 

The purpose of the ARHA is to define, promote and enhance the enjoyment of roan horse ownership by providing a registry and communication venues to facilitate member participation through showing , breeding, and competing.The American Roan Horse Association is dedicated to recognizing roan horses as a distinct color breed for American Quarter Horses, American Paint Horses and Appaloosas 

 

The idea for this association was a result of two women realizing that roans fit the same criteria used for Paints and Buckskins/Duns… that one parent had to pass the genetics on to the offspring.  “We are very excited to be able to offer roan horse owners their own association,” states Lori Watkins, in the leadership of ARHA.  “We offer a central website for all roan owners that breed or show and have had an amazing response already.  Our association is a secondary registration for all horses and targets Quarter, Paint and Appaloosa horses.”             

 

All roan offspring must have at least one parent exhibiting color characteristics and carry a dominant roan gene in order to produce a roan.  A horse that does not exhibit the characteristics of roaning will not pass along the gene, hence there will be no “breeding stock” registration certificates issued.
