About the RPSI

What's special about the RPSI? Breeding goals, registry rules, and inspection judges are the same on both sides of the ocean, so breeders and buyers alike can rely on a consistent standard of quality. The RPSI is proud to be a friendly, accessible registry that stands behind its breeders, offering service, advice and stability. The RPSI was the first North American warmblood registry to offer breeders a Select Foal Auction - offered annually. North America is producing some of the highest quality equine athletes in the world, and it's our job at RPSI to ensure that the breeder receives the recognition and promotion they deserve.

The RPSI offers studbooks for Deutsches Sportferd (Warmblood), German Riding Ponies, Kleines Deutsches Sportpferd, Knabstruppers, and Haflingers. The Warmblood book is open to mares and stallions from recognized Warmblood registries, as well as Thoroughbreds, Arabians and Anglo-Arabians. RPSI/Deutsches Sportpferd horses are bred for quality of movement, correctness of conformation and clear character. This foundation produces a superior athlete with high trainability and competitiveness for any of the sport horse disciplines. Read more...
