If she is currently registered and you are paying the extra $200 to get the papers, then the cost of transferring them to you is $15.00 + $45.00 to join the AQHA if you are not currently a member.
What I've done in the past is to leave the transfer papers open so I don't appear on the transfer records. What I'll do is to give the papers and the transfer form to the new owner so that if they register the horse in their name the record shows the previous owner and the new one but not me. That is a pretty common thing to do.
One reason that is done, many times, is so that there are not a lot of owners shown on the registration which might suggest to a potential buyer that there is a problem with the horse because of all the owners in a short time. It takes about 30 days to get the papers back from AQHA with the new owner's name on them. If you are going to flip the horse it looks bad that the current owner - you - have only had the horse for a few weeks.
I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.
Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.
It's not always what you say but what they hear.
