192 ARTIFICIAL INSEMINATION AND/OR EMBRYO TRANSFER
Artificial insemination using frozen semen and embryo transfer are not allowed, and any person or breeding establishment found in violation shall be barred from showing and/or registering their horses for a period of not less than one year.

192A On Premise Artificial Insemination

A foal shall be considered eligible for registration which is conceived by artificial insemination involving the use of semen that is used immediately following collection (time lapse not to exceed 24 hours) and at the place or premises of collection.

192B Cooled Semen Transportation

A foal shall be considered eligible for registration which is conceived using cooled semen (not frozen) transported from the location of collection, if other Association rules and the following conditions are met:

1. Before semen may be transported from the location of collection, the stallion owner, lessee of record or authorized agent (all hereafter shall be referred to as stallion owner) at the time of permit application, shall apply and pay the yearly fee for the transported semen permit ($200.00 per stallion per year). This permit is effective for the calendar year (January 1 - December 31) during which the semen must be collected and used. The permit fee is non-refundable or transferable. In addition to hand or pasture breeding mares, a stallion will be limited to twenty (20) mares exposed to transported cooled semen and on premise artificial insemination or any combination of the two procedures during any one calendar year.

a. This permit will:

(1) Be issued to the stallion owner upon receipt of the above fee and the blood/DNA genetic testing of the stallion on record with AMHA.

(2) Identify the stallion from which the collection is to be taken.

2. Once a permit has been issued, a collection insemination report must be completed and sent with each inseminate by the stallion owner. This report requires a portion to be completed and mailed to the AMHA by the mare owner. This report will certify the identity of the collected stallion and date as well as the inseminated mare and date. The collection and insemination shall be overseen/conducted by veterinarians/technicians as attested by their signatures certifying that the appropriate stallion and mare have been correctly identified from the horses' original registration certificates.

3. The mare must be inseminated within seventy-two (72) hours of collection.

4. The mare owner shall contact the stallion owner to arrange for the transportation of semen. Any fees charged by the stallion owner in connection with providing the transported cooled semen are between the mare owner and the stallion owner.

5. Should the mare for which a collection insemination certificate was issued not conceive within the calendar year, the stallion owner must apply for a new permit and fee paid before insemination with transported cooled semen is attempted in the subsequent calendar year.

6. Prior to the completion of the registration application for a foal conceived through the use of transported cooled semen, the applicant shall have the blood/DNA genetic testing of the dam and the foal on record with AMHA, and the foal's parentage must be verified.

7. There will be a $500 penalty fee per incident for transporting semen without a permit.
192 C The stallion service report shall include all mares exposed to transported cooled semen whether or not a mare conceives. Said service report will distinguish between artificial and natural (hand or pasture breeding) services and transported cooled semen.
