Question How to re-register/change the registered name?

I have a filly who was registered through APHA. She is a solid roan, which also makes her eligible to be registered with the Roan association.

I am interested in changing her registered name, but don't know how to begin that process. I don't care what association she's registered under, but wouldn't it be really complicated to have the same horse registered under two different associations with different names?
Does anyone know the process for changing a registered name through APHA, or if it is even possible?

Riders aren't 16 and pregnant. Riders are 16 and arthritic.

As long as she has no progeny, her name can be changed with the APHA. I believe it costs $100. I'd call them and ask the exact process.

I know the TWHBEA will allow name change as I've done it but the horse was a gelding. Cost me $50. It was a whole different ball game for mares and stallions and if my lousy memory serves me correctly, it was considerable more costly. An email to the registry will get you the info. Look after the APHA registry and that is a breed registry. Someone else needs to step in and let us know about the Roan Registry and if it's just about color.

yes you can change their name as long as they haven't earned any points or have any registered offspring.Know people that have done name change.It was a long while ago but They filled a name change request form & fees. Was about $100 back then...
