The Radautzer Award

NASS has created the Radautzer award to recognize NASS Registered Horses competing in AERC rides. Please visit the Radautzer Award page for more 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.

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).
