I am buying a horse tomorrow that will have APHA papers.
I have never bought a horse with papers before and don't know the first thing about it.
All I know is that I should get the original.
But, how am I able to get it transferred to my name? Or, do I need to?
From my understanding is that the current owner has them, but, I don't think he ever got them put in his name. He is a horse trader. He gets really nice horses and resales them a bit more trained, and for a lot more money!
I have seen a picture of the papers, they have the previous owners name on them. I have been in contact with this person to ask about the horse, he was very friendly and helpful.
Can I get them transferred over to me with him if he will do it? How do I do that?
And, do you have to be a member of the APHA to actually do any of this?
I doubt very highly that the original owner, whose name is still on the papers is still in anything like that since he no longer has any horses.
Ugh, as you can see, I need help.
