Note to the database:
This database, completed in August 2012, replaces a Microsoft Access database that had been in use since the early 1990’s. This project was undertaken to improve the data collection and management processes of the RMHA by providing an expanded, relational, web-based system about Rocky Mountain horses, for Rocky Mountain horse owners, RMHA members, equine enthusiasts and other visitors to our website.
The pedigree charts, generated from the database, contain the most accurate information about the lineage of Rocky Mountain horses obtainable from the recorded history of the breed. Because there is no documentation for the earliest horses, there are registered and unregistered horses with the same name, horses where the data shows more than one sire and/or dam, and sometimes two identical horses with an identical sire and/or dam but a different grand-sire and/or grand-dam. For the database to work properly, no two horses can have the same name and every horse can have only one sire and one dam in the data. To minimize changes to the data imported from the Microsoft Access database, but still account for the problems associated with the unregistered horses, specific horses have a number appended to their name.
To summarize, the following criteria were used to modify the data:
