Find Out Your Horse's Breed Composition With Our DNA Test

We only need 30 mane and/or tail hairs with the follicle still attached (pulled, not cut).


Results will be emailed to you within two weeks of your horse's sample being received by our accredited lab.


Every horse breed ancestry DNA test comes with a free DNA profile search where we search for the tested horse's sire and dam matches. Any matches found will be listed in your horse's report. If matches are not found, we do keep all DNA on file in case future matches are found.

What do your results include?

The results of the test will be provided to you in a detailed report, which will outline the different breeds that make up your horse's ancestry, breed specific genetic concerns, unique breed characteristics and more. This information can be valuable for a variety of reasons – for example, if you're trying to determine the best training and care plan for your horse, or if you're simply curious about your horse's background.

All tested horses will have a parentage and registry search performed - any information found in our database will be listed in your results. We keep DNA on file so if a match for sire and/or dam is found in the future, we will contact you.

DNA My Horse will also provide you with a custom certificate with a photo of your horse stating their breed composition for display and keepsake purposes. The report and breed certificate are emailed to you so you can get the results straight away after they are complete!

Finally get the answer to your horse's breed(s):

I rescued a cob mare who was in foal from an awful situation June last year. She had been dumped on a farmer’s field and were in really poor condition. The farmer contacted me for help as he didn’t know where they’d come from or what to do with them. I attended with our vet who agreed that the animals needed to be removed on welfare grounds. The mare recovered well and had her foal later that July. We used the DNA My Horse breed test to help us learn the foal's breed - he was an traditional gypsy cob/welsh section D mix!
