Foal
Why don't past owners want to reveal themselves?

Ok, now this one is puzzling me.

I wanted to contact the previous owners of the horse that I bought, to see if I could follow her lineage down and find out more about her breeding.

The woman I bought the horse from, said she was not able to tell me, because when she purchased her, part of the conditions of the sale was that she not reveal the previous owner's name.

I did find out that my mare could have been registered when she was born, but the owners of her Dam did not pay the owners of the Stud the stud fee, so they refused to issue papers for the foal.

Would that situation be the reason these people don't want their name revealed?

Trained
I don't want people calling me and bothering me about a horse I sold. I don't want to get an extended family along with every horse I sell. However, I don't go to any lenths to keep my name secret and I have had people call me about horses that I have once owned. Most are fine people but every once in a while you get somebody that wants to either chat for an hour about how they love the horse or tell you how poorly trained it is and all the mistakes you've made. The fact of the matter is that you have the horse you have and you should deal with it the way it is. Very rarely will knowing anything about a horses past help you with riding or training it.

^^ I like calling horses' breeders to find out how they were as a foal. And I suppose you should like that your horses are in good ownership. :)

Foal
Yes, I can see how some people don't want to be bothered by certain types of people, but what's wrong with someone wanting to know the history of their horse, especially if no information has been provided?
Would it not be easier for the sellers/breeders to just provide all the information they can on each horse they sell to begin with?

I would love love love love to hear from a few of the owners of some of the horses that I have had. It would make my day to see how they are doing.

Smart!

Obviously did it because of people like you. If an arrangement was made during the initial purchase(which was probably was done for money saving purposes), they knew that someone, somewhere along the line would eventually be wanting to do what you want to do, which is to register the horse. I find it quite clever on their part.

Makes sense? In their shoes I would have done the exact same thing.

I work with all types of different breeders. And every single one of them likes to stay in contact with the owners. That way every time there is a success story, they can post it on their website or something and then it will spread the word about their horses. And it shows the owners that you actually give two ****s about them. It's just good business.

I'm going to have to severely disagree with this. I think the horses past has almost everything to do with riding and training him.

How does it save money? And how is it clever of the breeder?

Ir would make my day if P.Ds owners called me up to tell him how he's doing and ask stuff. I would just love it! I understand if you are a big time trainer/breeder or something and you sell hundreds of horses, but like White foot said, wouldnt it be nice to here how your horses are doing every once in a while?

My2Geldings, I don't really understand your post... how would that benefit the breeder not to have one of their hroses registered?

I think it's just good business to call someone up atleast once or so a year or email them just to be updated. That's what I'm trying to understand, looking at it from a buyers perspective the only word I would spread about that breeder is how they conducted bad business.
