Well the lady refused to hand them over (she signed a bill of sale though) and whover bought her didn't fight the issue and bought her anyways and the person who bought after that got in contact with her and she still refused and it just kinda went down the line like that until I got her. The lady I talked to who was with the registry people told me I would probably be able to get it so I am hopeful ^.^
The first thing I would do is contact the lady who is withholding the papers yourself. You might be surprised.
The papers on my Paint mare were outdated by 3 owners back - no one had done any kind of transfers. Rather than make a long paper trail, I called that lady up and she happily agreed to sign the papers to get her transferred from her to me without all the BS.
I'm just saying you never know, she may just say sure or tell you how you can get them. The worst she can say is no, then you can ask her why LOL
Next up, the registry should be able to step in and do what they have to do, provided you have the proper paper trail for them to follow back to this lady who refuses to give up the certificate.
It may seem like a hassle, but it's worth it in my opinion - so absolutely you only have claim to her :)
