ISG Meeting - Switzerland See ISG Website for Details




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. 

We want to share news about all our wonderful members and their horses. Whether you trail ride, do dressage, western, drive,  jump, take riding lessons, pleasure ride, distance ride, do cowboy mounted shooting, archery, etc., NASS want to include news about every one of our members and fellow foreign ISG members. Please contact the NASS Newsletter Editor at: NASS_Newsletter_Editor@shagya.net

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

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
