this is not true in all states. i know here in Iowa registration papers are NOT proof of ownership. we had a gelding of ours stolen out of our pasture. the lady, a very well know APHA breeder here in Iowa, cut our fence while she knew we would be away at a show and took him. she admitted she had him, but because we did not have a "legal bill of sale" here in Iowa. we could not prove he was ours. she got trespassing fines, a big lawyer bill, and a crippled horse. (he was kicked in the stifle while in her possession.)

that is a shame but if you had a legal bill of sale with his reg. # on it, you would prove ownership. also having the papers with your name on it, and mabye a coggins test with his reg.#'s on it would have helped too. I know some people who microchip thier horses, that info would also have the reg. # programed into the chip info.
