TGCA - PART BRED REGISTRATION CRITERIA
OPEN TO ALL COLOURS
Although the animals entered in all sections of the TGCA part bred Stud Book vary in size and substance, all show evidence of their common ancestor, the Traditional Gypsy Cob.
Each cob presented must contain a minimum of 50% Traditional Gypsy Cob. The remaining 50% can be any other breed, but must be proven to be either sire or dam, by means of covering certificate or, & DNA Profiling subject to individual requests from the TGCA taken on individual merit.
Where the dam (or sire) of a Part-bred foal is not registered with the Relevant Breed Society, they are reminded that they should send a photocopy of the sire/dam’s pedigree and accurate breed information with their application to allow full pedigree details to be included in the foal’s registration. Unlicensed stallions will be noted as such.
Animals of no known or unproven breeding, but who display clear Traditional Gypsy Cob characteristics, may be accepted into the Part bred Register on visible evidence only. All such applications are treated individually and require a TGCA assessment approval.
