For any horse to qualify for registration in the Foundation Foxtrotter Heritage Association it must first qualify via V-factoring ( see V-factoring page) and must have traceable extended pedigrees to horses registered with the Missouri Foxtrotter Horse Breed Association registered prior to 1970.

All horses must be duly registered with the Missouri Foxtrotter Horse Breed Association which requires DNA testing. FFHA membership is required prior to registering horses with the FFHA.

All horses registered with the Foundation Foxtrotter Heritage Association shall be registered as silver medallion horses on the merit of their V-factor and heritage. Horses who pass inspection by Foundation Foxtrotter Heritage Association approved inspectors shall receive a GOLD medallion on their registration papers as well as the silver.

Horses shall be inspected in hand. Horses shall be allowed no chemicals, drugs, calmatives or mood altering medications prior to or during inspection.

Inspectors decisions are final. Any contest of results of inspection may be brought to the attention of the Managing Director or Regional Commissioners by written request for reconsideration. A vote on the matter must be conducted. If approved the member may apply for re-inspection of the horse by a second inspector.

Inspections may be conducted in person at approved FFHA events, by inspectors being invited to private residences, or via video footage with a minimum of 5 minutes tape and a maximum of 30 minutes. All videos must show the subject horse standing squarely on all four feet from front, back, and side view with the head up. The gait portion of the video must be taken from an angle conducive to seeing the gait and must include enough strides to establish gait.

Horses presented for inspection shall be wearing a halter and lead rope. If shod the horse shall be wearing common keg shoes.
