Success begins in the breeding shed!


RPSI   Rheinland Pfalz-Saar Internationalaboutusstatestudfarm

The RPSI registry administration and judges tour for 3 months each year and personally inspect every single foal that is presented for registration.  They  evaluate  conformation, movement, type, and temperament and foals are rated in relevance to the ideal. Foals are inspected keeping all FEI disciplines in mind, and by the same judges worldwide, which ensures the equality of those evaluations.  The RPSI is actually the official North American extension of the German Verband, the Pferdezuchterverband Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar e.V. RPSI (Deutsches Sportpferd, formerly called Zweibrücker) horses receive official passport-style registration papers from Germany, as well as a Life Number, are branded  and microchipped.  They are DNA tested and entered into the German database of sport horses (VIT). North American horses registered with the RPSI are eligible to compete and breed in Germany, under the same rules as the horses born in Germany, and breeders here get input, advice, and a critique from the same German judges and officials who are actually overseeing the direction of sport horse breeding in Germany.  For more information on the RPSI please follow this link.
