HYPP test result procedures

As of January 1, 2008, all unregistered Appaloosas that owners choose to have HYPP tested and parentage verified through the ApHC, using the same sample for both tests, will have their HYPP test results designated on their original certificate of registration. HYPP testing is not a requirement of ApHC registration.

Owners that choose to test for HYPP and have the parentage verified through the ApHC, using the same sample for both tests, that were previously issued a certificate of registration will have the option of meeting ApHC requirements for a corrected certificate (see Rule 241) upon which the ApHC will designate HYPP test results, or the owner may retain the original certificate.

Test fees:
HYPP test……..…………………………………………….…$45 (member and non-member)
Parentage verification……………………………….…$50 (member and non-member)
Parentage verification and HYPP test……………$95 (member and non-member)

Please note: The last sentence in Rule 223.A. of the **2008 Official Handbook of the ApHC** should be corrected as follows: **All fees and procedures for issuance of a duplicate corrected certificate will be required where applicable.** It’s not necessary to complete and notarize the affidavit for duplicate certificate so that HYPP test results may be printed on your horse’s certificate of registration. Forms are available at www.appaloosa.com or call ext. 300.

    Steve,

    I was just wondering why the ApHC is going to charge $45.00 per HYPP test when we can go straight to Maxam Labs with the test for $35.00? I am not against the HYPP results having to be done when DNA is done in order to put the results on the papers. I have hoped that this would be a requirement. But what I don’t understand is the $10.00 markup by the ApHC for they HYPP test. Before I wrote to you I made sure on the Maxam Labs for that the HYPP test is still $35.00 through them without going through ApHC.
