Westfalen NA inspections, or keurings, are held in the late summer and early fall of each year at host sites throughout North America.
From 2017 onward, all inspections and registrations will be Westfalen, in cooperation with our official parent organization the
Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch e.V.,
and inspections are judged by qualified representatives of the German parent registry and all registration passports are
produced by our WBFSH sanctioned parent verband in Germany.
As in Europe, approved mares and stallions are entered directly into the Mare Book and Stud Book and foals
are given a registration number at birth. This number follows the foal's show results, location, and breeding records, if applicable.
Foals are also required to be Microchipped and receive a Lifetime USEF # along with their Microchip. Branding is Optional.

in your farm and horses, as well as encourage more people to get involved in an inspection! Here's a sample press release written by

rambunctious four-month-old, and inspection weekend is just around the corner.
