About Us: 

Founded in 1906, the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (CTHS) was incorporated under the Animal Pedigree Act as the official registry of Thoroughbred horses in Canada.  The CTHS (Alberta Division) and its membership are a major part of the agriculture community in Alberta – our goal is to ensure a viable future for our members by providing assistance and developing programs to ensure that future.  Our mandate is to promote the purchase of Alberta Thoroughbreds, keep records, organize sales, disseminate information, compile statistics and assist our membership with registration.
