Transferring registration papers if they haven't been updated?

I have my mare's APHA papers, but they haven't been updated since 2 owners ago (2002!). Is it possible to register her in my name if they haven't been updated?

I'm pretty sure you will need a signed transfer from the current registered owner..

Ok. The last owners contact info is in there from 2002. Would it be strange to contact her?

I guess it's not the end of the world if I'm not on the papers, but it would be a nice feeling!

I would contact the breed association. For my haflinger they transfered him to my name but put a note on the papers that there was a break in ownership. I didn't have to track down the last owners on the papers.

I don't think it would be strange. I sold a mare once that the purchaser was not interested in her papers. I told him I would hold them in case he changed his mind. He sold her later and relayed the message to the new owners. They called me, wanting her papers. We bypassed the second owner and did a transfer straight from me to her and she turned them in.

You have the papers. I can't see where a person would have a problem with signing a transfer. They will probably be happy to know the horse has a good home.

Good luck

I agree with texasgal. It is not strange.

I ended up with an APHA registered horse a few years back (still have him) and the papers were a mess. Well, the whole situation the horse was in was a full blown nightmare. I contacted APHA and they were awesome, gave me every piece of info I needed. I contacted the breeders who were still listed as the owners. They were very understanding and just happy to hear the horse landed a good home and they just signed a new copy of the papers and a bill of sale. It was quick, simple and cost me just the transfer fee, granted I already had a membership with APHA.

Good luck.
