Obtaining Registery for horse with lost papers

I recieved a filly for breaking a few horses for a guy last year as payment and the reason he let it go for a low price was because she had been purchased by a man who had came out to this guys barn and the guy who bought her was going to go home which was about 2 hours away the way he explained it. The guy took the papers on the horse who was registered through the AQHA as a form of receipt or what not. Well 2 months down the road the man still hadnt showed up to pick up his filly! Well as I said I came did some training and ended up with this little mare and I would like to try to get her back registered. How do I go about doing this? Is it possible? Through dna or something??

You need to contact AQHA and talk to them. They will lead you down the right path.

Wait, did the guy that took the papers pay for her? Has she been transferred? Whoever is the last registered owner can send in for new papers and sign a transfer to you. But I would be concerned if she was bought and paid for, just never picked up.

The holder of the papers own them. They can give them up with the horse or keep them. The AQHA doesn't care to put it in easy terms, they do not force anyone to turn over papers with the horse. So you may never have a registered with papers horse.

Unless the person who gave the filly to you has legal right to the horse, not only can't you register her, in the eyes of the law, she was stolen.

Lol she wasnt picked up for over a year and the man who purchased her NEVER called back hardly stolen... I have had her for 1 year now and I got her after 2 months had went by from the date of sale. For all we know the purchaser died! He dropped off the face of the earth and never even tried to call the BO I got the horse from. If I called AQHA wouldnt they be able to tell me about the owner if he ever transfered the papers to himself? I doubt he even registered himself as the owner to start with to be honest. I actually doubt the man is alive not trying to sound harsh but who pays for something and doesnt pick it up EVER??

The person who gave you the horse needed to have ownership of the horse. He could have done that by putting a lien on the horse for back board payment. There is a right way to do it and a wrong way. He can't just give you the horse and you contact AQHA to have him registered in your name. For all you know, the person who has the papers never transferred the horse to his name either so it becomes more of a mess.

That's what I am getting at if he never transfered the papers to his name and they are still in the BO name. Couldn't I do a dna test or something to find out more about the horse?

If you know her registered name, AQHA will be able to tell you who she is registered to. All transfers will have to be done by the last recorded owner.

You took her home a year ago (2 months after she was sold, but not picked up), but are you sure that the guy that bought her didn't call shortly after you took her? If someone pays for something, legally it is theirs. Was there a contract between the buyer and seller stating how long he had to come pick her up?
