I am 16, and when I bought him, I was 15, and he was bought in my name, and his papers are in my name. I didn't even bring a parent with me, my boss drove me there with her horse trailer. I will be sure to talk to her parents, but I will allow her to sign the horse in her name.
I bought horses like this myself, and sold them, signing for them in my name, before I was 18. that said, you don't have a valid contract. the primary 'signees' must be of legal age, meaning the buyer and seller. If you ever had to take action, using the bill of sale as a legal document, it would be invalid, thus completely nullifying the point of having it in the first place. do ahead and negotiate price with the girl, but she should not be the only one signing(nor should you). My parents don't know the head from the tail, so I did all the negotiations, but they should have been there to sign(or even my BO).

don't ever let the horse leave without being paid.

don't ever take a persons word for it. deposit in hand and everything in writing.

don't ever assume it will work out based on phone conversations and emails. I've had the most perfect sounding buyers come look(several different cases) that swore up and down that the horse was perfect and they were showing up with the trailer, only to have them turn out horribly wrong for the horse, or not the way they portrayed themselves.

Arguably since a minor cannot enter a legal contract and you're a minor....see where I'm going with this? It could be argued that you are not the owner, since you're legally a child. I doubt it would ever be an issue - I don't see people getting into a legal battle over this horse, but if something did come up it could turn into a bigger mess than you think.

Please don't be irresponsible because it's what you got to do. I have never signed my name to a horse until I bought Jackson and that was AFTER I had turned eighteen. All sorts of things can come up that you need to have the *legal* owner present for, my vet, for example, requires signatures from the legal owner and will not accept from those younger than legal age. Show grounds here require signatures from the legal owner, must be 18 years of age, etc. just something to think about.

I am not arguing anything, I am just saying that he is signed into my name, and with AQHA. If they decide to buy him, I will make arrangements with her and her parents, but I am not going to stop her from transfering the papers into her name, instead of her parents. But yes, I will make sure everything is in order, and he is paid for, before he leaves the property.

I don't think you understand that he can't LEGALLY be transferred into her name, not trying to argue either just facts...

I have another question then... should I have them sign a bill of sale, along with a transfer paper, or will the transfer paper be enough?

When I bought him, I only got a transfer paper signed for him, nothing else.

The AQHYA allows minors to have horses under their name.

So does APHA.

OP, Have then sign a Bill of Sale and you can sign off his transfer papers.

You should have a bill of sale - which is like a receipt. Where as the transfer is just registration.

I wouldn't be too worried about an underage girl signing the bill of sale, if anything it would be more risky the other way around.

I wouldn't hold him without a deposit, and I don't accept a payment plans at all, much less letting a horse off property without full payment.

Another Question!

If I get a date where someone wants to come out and see the horse, but I get another reply, and they want to come sooner... should I let them, or tell them to wait until after the other people come?
