Red face Can someone look up my horse on APHA?

I just got a pretty Paint Mare and I would like to get her basic info but don't want to spend a fortune just to find out her sire/dam and DOB.

Could someone look her info up for me? Her registered name is "She's Taylor Made"

I appreciate anything you can give me. Once I know for sure she is on there I may pay to access it and change her registration info.

Thanks.

Why would you need to change the registration information? If you own her, don't you have her papers? Transferred them to yourself? Become a member of APHA?

When I was an active member of APHA, I had access to the databanks. Just a little confused here...

Edit: also, if you own her, know her registered name, her papers would have her sire/dam and DOB

Just because a horse is registered doesn't mean the current owner has the papers! Registered horses get sold all the time without papers! She probably just knows the horses registered name and wants to make sure she is registered before paying to become a member and hopefully get the horses papers in her name if possible I am not a member of APHA but I hope someone on here can help you OP!

No I don't have her papers

The lady I got her from - got her from the person that registered her but never got her papers. She is just a pleasure horse, I never plan to breed her although I heard that she has had a foal. I am not an APHA member so I can't look it up myself, I was just hoping someone out there would help me out. If I have to I will pay to join but all I want to know is her birthday and parents so seems like a lot of money just to find out that.

I don't know that I will try and change ownership, I am just interested to get some info on her. I didn't get much from the current owner.

As far as I know, through APHA, you can't transfer ownership online. You have to have a hard copy of the papers, with the previous owners signature on it releasing ownership of the horse to the new owner, you. You put your information on the back of the papers and send it through the mail.

That helps. If I decide to register her I'll need to track down the owners info then. Good to know.

Any registry I know of requires the hard copy with owner transfer to get her papers to you.

Even if you don't plan on breeding her, without the papers she has an equal value to a grade of unknown parentage/breeding. It would be well worth the trouble and money to get ahold of her papers and get them in your name. If you don't end up keeping her for the rest of her natural life, it is to her benefit that you have her papers if you were to ever sell her.

Does the lady you bought her from remember who she had purchased her from? The other thing is, if she is registered but neither you or the previous owner have the papers, are you sure you are spelling the name correctly?

I was able to track down her first owner via email, but she said Taylor wasn't in her name the breeder registered her. She sent me her registered name in "Quotes" so I assume it is her name. I also went to the APHA site and did a name search and it shows her name is taken. That is all I can do on their without subscribing.

I will probably transfer her registration eventually, but I know that will involve a lot more work. I really just want to know when to celebrate her birthday, I know its a silly reason to check but I want to make sure how old she is as well.

Heck, guys all she wanted was any info on the horse, not whether she could register her or not.Not a big deal. I wish I was still a member, I would have gladly looked it up.. Sorry, but can't help, sounds as if Kansas spice girl is trying to help.
