AQHA Question

I was wondering if there is a way to email AQHA... I just joined today (to transfer a horse into my name) in the youth regestration and I have to ask a question... unless you guys can answer it for me.

The horse I just bought (Dimensional Wrangler) is registered in the Original Breeders name, and I bought him off a guy who is not his original breeder, although he did get a transfer report filled out, with the original breeders information... but not his.

I got him to fill out a transfer report, for me to have, so I can send it in. Will it be a problem if the horse is not registered in his name?

I have both transfer reports and the actual papers. This guy bought him at an auction less then a year ago along with a few others, and he is selling almost all his horses.

Also... Wrangler is a gelding, but registered as a stallion. I would like to get this changed, but I don't know how... should I send in both transfer reports and his papers, to get them changed into my name? Will they automatically change his gender to a gelding?

He has a brand, so should I send a picture of him in too?

Sorry about all the questions, this is my first time with a registered horse, and transfering, and having an AQHA account. Please give as much information as possible!

AQHA will not knowingly skip an ownership transfer. The first transfer (name on the existing certificate being sold to guy you bought from) will need to be addressed before you can register the transfer from guy you bought from into your name. Of course, if you have a transfer certificate signed by owner on the registration papers, but the "Buyer" section was left blank, you could technically fill in your name but it's not ethical.

If you send in a vet's note that the horse was gelded when you send in the transfer report, then they will adjust the papers accordingly.

Okay, thanks, on both transfer reports, the gelded option is checked. I am going to send both transfer reports in, one with the breeder signing off, and one with the previous owner signing off, will my information as well, and the registration papers. I hope it works, but I don't know if I will have to pay for both transfer reports, or just one... and I emailed them about that.

You will have to send in the fee for both transfers. Be sure you copy your papers. If they find any irregularity with either transfer, they will seize your horse's papers and will not release them until all questions and problems are answered and all fees paid.

I had something similar happen when we bought our mare.

1). You need all the signed transfers from the registered owner to you. (Which it sounds like you have.

2). I only had to pay one transfer fee for all three transfers. So, make sure that deal is still available.

3.). I sent in full pictures with my papers and they actually put them on her papers. I think that's helpful. So, take a front, left, right, and rear shot and a close up of any special markings.

That's it! Just be prepared, due to some questions about the transfers, mine took almost 5 months. :(
