NASS Brochure

Shagya-Arabian breeding in America officially began in 1986 with the founding of the North American Shagya-Arabian Society, Inc. (NASS). 

Later that year, NASS was accepted by the International Shagya-Araber Gesellschaft (ISG) as the official registry for the USA and Canada. ISG is the International body supporting the breeding and preservation of the Shagya-Arabian breed.

The Purpose of NASS: 

  • Promotion, Preservation, and Improvement of the Purebred Shagya-Arabian horse

  • Establishment of a Shagya-Arabian Registry for Purebred and Partbred Shagya Arabians

  • Regulation and approval of breeding stock

  • Dissemination of information about the breed to the public

  • Establishment of an Performance Awards system for performance achievement

  • Promotion of cooperation with Shagya-Arabian breeders around the world, and in particular with the International Shagya-Araber Gesellschaft (ISG).

​NASS News Newsletter

NASS Newsletter: 

Hard Copies will be mailed to all current NASS Members in December 2018. 

Shagya-Arabians were relatively unknown in America before the 1980s, although a few had been imported both before and after World War II. Prior to the founding of the NASS no registry for Shagya-Arabians existed in America, and they were sometimes mistakenly registered as either purebred or partbred Arabians. 

NASS carries out its role by maintaining the Shagya-Arabian Registry of North America (SHARONA).

NASS also organizes and conducts breeding approval inspections. To be eligible for Shagya-Arabian breeding, mares and stallions must be approved by a panel of judges which are all ISG-Certified and selected by NASS. 

Contact the Breeding Committee Chairperson for more information about upcoming inspection tours: NASS Breeding Committee Chairperson. 

NASS publishes a  newsletter and an annual report. The newsletter includes minutes of board meetings, farm news, articles about the breed, classified section and membership information.  The NASS annual report includes inspection tour results when applicable, farm news, articles about the breed, classified ads and announcement of the winners in the awards program.
