We are actually going to bypass the current owner and go right to my name.
I bought an APHA registered horse and the came thing happened to me. The owner I bought my horse from never had the papers tranferred to her name, so when I was registering my horse I had have a transfer summery from the owner I bought my horse from and for myself. There was no time limit because the owner that I bought my horse had my horse for 5 years and so there is no time limit on this.
It is also very helpful to call APHA because they are very knowledgable and were able to talk me through the process. Because this was also my first registered horse and I had no clue what to do.
