If the mare has been covered by two stallions in the same season, it is essential that two Service Certificates be lodged and DNA will be required to establish paternity.

Any mares inseminated by transported or frozen semen must have a Service Certificate as well as an Artificial Insemination Form (AI) completed by the veterinary surgeon or technician who performed the insemination.

This form should be sent, completed, back to the Stallion/Semen owner who can then fill out the Service Certificate with the correct information.

Semen dealers should complete the appropriate section of the Artificial Insemination Form and forward it with the semen to the veterinary surgeon to complete the remaining sections.

The owners of all stallions currently financially registered in the Stallion Register must purchase a Service Certificate Booklet from ACE Group. These forms must be completed for every mare the stallion serves. The forms are non-carbonised forms which are in triplicate – the top copy is to be forwarded to ACE Group, the duplicate to the mare owner and the triplicate copy stays in the book. Certificates must be completed and lodged with ACE Group by the 30th April of each year.

Awards for Stallions
ACE registered stallions of especially high quality are awarded distinction. The inspection of the stallions is carried out during the yearly ACE breeding inspection and assessment tour.
Stallions scoring an overall percentage of 78% and higher are eligible for a premium award.
Stallions scoring a total average of 80% and higher are awarded elite stallions.


Horses used for breeding are expected to be healthy and fertile. General health, as well as the health of reproductive organs and hereditary health, are to be taken into account.
Recognition of results of sports performance for the entry into the Stallion Studbook.
ACE recognises results from international and national competitive sports events/ horse performance shows for approval to the ACE studbooks if they correspond to the following placings:

Dressage: Receive scores of at least 68% five (5) times under various judges in tests at the advanced level or higher at EA Australia recognised events; or

Jumping: Be placed in the top three (3) in at least 1.45m to 1.50m courses for a total of five (5) times at EA Australia recognised events; or

Eventing: Be placed three (3) times in the top 50% of finishers at EA Australia recognised events at a three-star or higher level.

Horses that achieve these performance results may be accepted into the Studbooks – provided they have also passed an ACE approved inspection of movements, external appearance, and internal characteristics.
