The horses registered in the Nomination Program by February 28th will be eligible to participate in the Derby.

In order to enroll the horse to the I.N.P., you need a membership.

To register horses to the I.N.P. you must be a member of the IRHBA for the current year (from 2023 the fee is € 50.00).



Membership fees and registrations of stallions, Futurity foals and Derby horses can be made:

a - "on-line": Payment by credit card or Pay Pal. In this case you will have an Immediate registration and no additional costs.

Pay Pal is recommended as it is the safest and cheapest way to pay

b - "off-line": by downloading the registration form from the IRHBA Web site , or by requesting it to the IRHBA show office , attaching the required documents and the receipt of the bank transfer.

In this case, an "office charge" of € 20.00 is due for each form, € 50.00 for a new stallion, € 25.00 for a stallion already registered, € 25.00 for each Futurity foal and € 25,00 for each Derby horse.

In the event of errors of any kind (non-association, amount due, missing or unreadable data, etc.) the registration will be kept pending for a maximum of 30 days: if the problem is not resolved within the deadline, the request for enrollment will be canceled for all intents and purposes with a refund by the IRHBA of any monies collected.

Any cancellation of a payment by the Bank or PayPal will automatically result in the cancellation of the related registrations and of the receipt issued by IRHBA.

The deadlines are mandatory and the date of the last bank transfer to settle the amount due will be used to determine the cost of the registrations.

All these issues can be avoided by using the “online” inscription by the website.
