The RPSI was the first North American Warmblood breeding organization to prioritize Permanent Horse Identification, proven by their early adherance to unique brand #'s, as well as their championing of microchipping and Unique Equine Life #'s to the USEF for years before microchips became required for age verification. The RPSI was also the first North American registry to organize and run a German-authorized Stallion Performance Test in North America, and offer its members the opportunity to market US-bred foals in a Select Online Auction Format.
Beginning in spring of 2017, the RPSI's parent organization the German Westfalen Verband in North America. All new inspections and registrations take place through the Westfalen Verband NA, with the breed-name Westfalen. RPSI registered Mares and Stallions are fully eligible for the equivalent Westfalen Verband NA breeding books.
