[German] Nennstartkarten?

I'm getting a license to be able to compete with my horse, and came across the word nennstartkarten. Does anyone know what it means? I googled and came up with a few sentences, but I still can't make it out.

"Bin gerade dabei eine Nennstartkarte auszufüllen, habe aber ein Problem..."
"Dort sind es unter Punkt 2 die Nennstartkarten Springen."

Any ideas?

Re: [German] Nennstartkarten?

The translation I get is 'Identification Card'... but more specifically a 'Type of Identification Card'...

On a google search, all the links refer to horses, so it's possible that this word is only used in one way... like a 'horse registration card' or a 'horse identity card' or maybe a 'horse classification card' ?

Re: [German] Nennstartkarten?

Seems to be a standardized card that is used to register in equestrian competitions. They come in three flavor: dressage, jumping, and driving. You can order them with this form. Registration may also be possible online.

I assume that they will not only have space for the registration but also for the event results and thus can be easily used for book, score, and whatever keeping. As they are standardized everybody working at such competitions will know what information can be found on this card and where on has to fill in the score. Smart.

Seems like you could replace "Nenn-" or "Nennung" with Registration
Nennstartkarte - Start registration card
Nennsystem - Registration system
Nenngeld - Registration fee
Nennschluss - Registration deadline
Nachnennung - Late registration (at competition)
Nachnenngebühr - Nachnenngeld - Late registration fee

This terms may also be used for other sport competitions, such as street races, Marathons, Ski competitions etc.
