It took a long time before an official Registry was founded, because breeders would keep the pedigrees of their horses secret within their families.
The first Registry of this breed was founded in the USA as late as 1996 and today there are 3 different registry classifications, depending on the height of the horse. It took till 2004 that the breed became officially recognized by the United States Dressage Federation.
