I bought a registered 1/2 Arabian in Feb 2013. The owner, a friend, and I had a promissory note drawn up & notarized because I moved her to another barn in January and was going to pay for the horse by Feb 28. In the prom note is states that upon receipt of the payment she would surrender the registration papers. I gave her the money and she did not have the papers handy. She went to look for them and could not find them. It has been 5 mos and still no papers. I do have a bill of sale. She keeps putting me off with all kinds of excuses. I would like to have her papers but it is not the end of the world. There is an Arabian show coming up I would like to take her in but I would need her papers. I know her registered name but not her reg#. Is there anyway I can go around the previous owner to get them? I don't even know what registry she is registered with. Am I just SOL?
