2022 Ontario Resident Mare Forms Mailed

Foals from mares meeting the requirements of the Ontario Resident Mare Program are registered as ONTARIO BRED. 

Mare enrollment:

Mare Owners (or Lessees) must enroll their mare(s) in the Ontario Resident Mare Program for each foaling year that they wish their foals to be registered as ONTARIO BRED. Enrolled mares must be resident in the Province of Ontario for a minimum of 180 consecutive days, including the date of foaling. Permission may be granted for mares required to leave Ontario for breeding or health reasons. If a mare’s absence from Ontario during her 180-day residency period is approved by the Program Administrator, the residency period will be interrupted for the time she is out of the province and will resume when she returns.

The fee for enrolling a mare in the Program is $100 before she foals or $300 after she foals, but before September 1st. Please Note: Third party proof of residency must be submitted if enrolling after the mare has foaled.

Mares Enrolled in the  ORMP as of October 13, 2021 – 2021 Foaling Year
