Q: Is a horse that is Revised, also Inscribed?
A --- Yes, however once the horse has passed Revision the inscription is implied.
Q: I just purchased a P.R.E. horse what do I do now?
A:--- While a rather in depth question, you first will need to get a breeders code through ANCCE, second fill out a transfer of ownership for your horse, and then see if your horse is of age to be or has been revised. To help look at the links above to walk you through these steps.
Q: I have a gelding do I need to get him revised?
A: --- Revision is only for breeding stock, geldings can be inscribed and shown in ANCCE shows but cannot be presented for revision.
Q: How Long does it take to get a Carta from Spain?
A: --- Well, that is a loaded question, there are many factors that can alter the return time on your carta. If you have all your ducks in a row 30 days to 6 months.... However if you have DNA, codigo, microchip, marking, vet etc. inconsistencies then you may have a wait on your hands.
Q: How do I know the "P.R.E." horse I am buying is really a P.R.E. registered in the Spanish stud book?
A: --- If the horse is inscribed (see the above steps to make sure) you are safe, if the horse does not show up when you see if it is inscribed (see the above links to find out how to do this), then you may be dealing with a horse that is registered with another registry and is misrepresented as a P.R.E. There are some dishonest breeders out there that "inscribe" their foals with a US Registry and call their horses P.R.E.
Q: What is the advantage to a P.R.E. when compared to an IALHA (S) or a Foundation 'Inscribed' Horse?
A: Well first off you don't ride the papers... A good horse is a good horse regardless of what type of paperwork they hold. When you look at purchasing a P.R.E. horse you are making an investment. When participating with the Spanish Stud Book (the only REAL international registry for the Spanish Horse) you are opening your self, your future clients, and your future clients clients to an international market. It is a fact that if you take your Spanish Carta, your IALHA papers, and your foundation 'carta like paperwork' to lets say China.... The only thing your Chinese clients will want for the future is your Spanish Carta. While your IALHA & Foundation papers may be an added bonus to put in a scrapbook should you want to display them, there is no real value to the other registries once outside the US and Canada. So you will pay more for a real P.R.E. horse, but you and your clients will be open to clientele around the world. Keep in mind even if you do not sell internationally it does not mean a future client of yours will not.
Q: I was talking to a breeder yesterday and they mentioned a 'Carta Sucia' what is that?
A: This is rather a humorous question.... Cara Sucia or dirty face is a term in Spanish often used to describe some one that is untrustworthy or two faced.... this term has been slightly turned and is now used when referring to a 'carta' from the foundation... a dirty carta or 'CARTA SUCIA' a two faced carta... I first heard this term in California in 2009 at a Rodeo near LA, it was being discussed that breeders were being taken advantage of when buying horses in California. When these breeders bred them or took them down to Mexico to breeders down there they were shocked to realize that their Foundation Inscribed/Revised horses were NOT and never could be registered in the Spanish Stud Book. And thus did not hold value as breeding stock in Mexico... Because of this confusion the terms Carta Verdad (Real Carta) and Carta Sucia (Dirty Carta) emerged.
