Horse DNA Testing for Identity

We are often contacted by people wondering if they have a Lipizzan.  In these situations we can run Parent Verification (PV) DNA on the horse (requires a hair sample) and compare it to our existing database to determine if

  1. It is an exact match for a previously registered horse, or
  2. If there are any potential sire or dam matches in our database. 

We also have a breed "fingerprint" method under development using the PV DNA that can suggest if a horse is purebred Lipizzan.

To initiate testing, please complete the following form.  The DNA testing fee is $47.  A DNA Submission Form will be emailed to you in pdf format. 

Alternatively, payment may also be made by sending a check directly to the USLF office - make sure to include all the information requested on the below form.

Stallion Reports

You may submit a stallion report online for up to four mares. If you have five or more mares (or prefer not to do the online form), please download and print the PDF.
