Sold without papers
A friend of mine bought a AQHA registered mare and the lady would not sell the papers with her. She has the bill of sale to prove she is the owner. The lady still has the papers, which is against AQHA rules, she has tried to sell her the papers. Where she has already bought the horse is there anything she can do through the AQHA so she doesn't have to pay for the horse twice?

Things like that need to have been brought up before money changed hands. I've seen horses sell for a real cheap price with no papers but a higher price if papers were included. Seems ridiculous to me but apparently not to the seller for whatever reason.

If the seller's name was not on the papers, she can contact AQHA and contact the last owner listed to request a set of duplicates. As long as she knows the registered name of the horse, AQHA will give her the most recent person who registered the horse and she can start from there. Of course, if the seller was the last person to register the horse, that won't work.

The lady who sold her is also the breeder. So she is the only one with the papers.

Why did you agree to buy her without papers?

RebeccaA13 08-07-2012 03:28 PM

Im not really sure why she bought her without papers.

That being the case, there isn't anything she can do about it that I'm aware of.

What is the horses registered name? My geuss is, either the horse was not registered, she doesn't actually own the horse, she lost the papers, OR, the horse has HYPP or HERDA, or even a parrot mouth and it is documented on the papers......
