I'm not an APHA member so I can't look it up. But in order for her to be registered in your name, you need the original paperwork with the previous owner signing off, relinquishing ownership of the horse. Why did you get a copy and not the original?
Some people refuse to sign off on a horse and there isn't anything the APHA can do to get her registered in your name. When my mares papers were stolen, we had to contact the person that was on her registration papers, she contacted APHA and said they were lost and we needed a duplicate. APHA sent it to her, she signed off as owner and I finally got them and she in now in my name. It look a long time and there were a lot of middle men involved.
That registration number looks off to me. Are you sure that they are APHA papers and not Pinto or Paint Pony?
