Registration Papers

Not really off topic but could decide on which forum to post......


Anyhow, how does or can one tell if registration papers are real, fake, or for a different horse?

Depending on the registry the often include pictures or a drawing noting the markings of the horse (I'm only experienced with AQHA, APHA, and AHA).

I think for a nominal fee, you can also send in hair to most registries to DNA test and confirm the horse is who you think it is. I know the Morgan Horse Association does.

Agree with the post above ^ it is especially hard for the stock horse breeds since most do not DNA. My ApHC papers have a picture of the horse on the back as well as my MFTA papers. AQHA does not do that.

Oh, interesting @carshon . We were posting at the same time I thought DNA confirmation was pretty standard but maybe not. My Morgan's registration papers have a statement that says "DNA confirmed" or something along those lines, and if you buy a Morgan but it's been separated from its papers, you can send in hair to confirm parentage, and if that individual is also registered, get a match on that specific horse.


So, I guess the best advice is to call the registry in question to ask what to do.

This is for a Missouri Fox Trotter. No pictures no marking comments other than color red. Shows foal date and owner at foal plus linage going back a ways.


The owner did not show me any ownership papers such as bill of sale when purchased. Just got me wondering.

The Foxtrotter association has different levels so his papers would be colored based on his lineage. Gold and Blue I think. My mare was younger than the gelding you have so her papers haver her picture on the back. It could be that he is older and the registry did not include the pictures then

The registry might have pictures/drawing on file if you contact them or search the horse through their database. With AHA the papers themselves only list lineage, color, sex, and breeder but their Datasource search tool has the pictures/markings in it.

Well shoot. I received a text a text from the owner asking what time I was coming today. In my reply, I asked if he had any ownership papers from the original purchase. He said the short answer was, "I don't know", but yet he had the registration papers in a manila folder with the horses name.


And then he mentioned that he did have someone coming this afternoon to look at him. The horse has been listed since April 28. I like the horse's personality but I'm getting suspicious. An old selling trick is to make the potential buyer think he's about to miss out.
