If your horse is purebred, and you have the registered name of the horse, you will likely find information on the sire or dam lines on multiple websites. You might find several options if you search for a horse’s breed registry. Some allow the name of a horse to be used again after a specified number of years. You can find accurate information by knowing the year your horse was born.
The Jockey Club Information Systems provides five-generation free pedigrees to Thoroughbreds via its website www.equineline.com. If you’re interested in breeding, you can explore “nicking” and get suggestions on genetic lines that might cross well with your horse. You can also find other information.
Pedigrees for Thoroughbreds as well as many other horses can be found at www.allbreedpedigree.com, though care should be taken to verify all pedigrees. Similar to Wikipedia, www.allpedigree.com lets users input data. Some of these data may be inaccurate. The most reliable source of pedigree data is still breed associations.
