It is specifically prohibited to freeze/suspend an owner at time of foaling until their membership dues are paid in full when a new owner of a foal is not able to register a foal because of the unpaid membership.

Please confirm with managers of future events whether they will accept the digital copy of the USAHR Certificate of Registration.
