Hey! So I am 14 years old and my family and I just purchased two registered paint horses. We have never owned registered horses before and they of course need to be taken out of the previous owner’s name, so I had a question. Can I, as a 14 year old, have the horses in my name? I’ve searched for an hour and none of the results are even related to my question. If not they can be in my parents name no problem, but I would love to have them in my name since I’ll be the one riding and possibly competing. Thanks for any help!

Yes you can. I'm sure it spells it out clearer in some part of the rule book but I came across this reference first.



2. An AjPHA membership is based on a 12-month period beginning with


the month of purchase and expiring the last day of the subsequent 12th


month (Example: if membership is postmarked Feb. 20, it expires Jan.


31 of the following year) and does not include a subscription to the


Paint Horse Journal. Exception: youth memberships automatically


expire on December 31 of the year in which the youth is 18 years


of age as of January 1. AjPHA membership does not include voting


privileges in the APHA except as pertains to Youth matters. An AjPHA


member may register horses in his/her name at member rates for the


full term of said membership.

Well I tried to bold the particular part it mentions juniors registering horses in their name but it didn't work. This was what I wanted you to read:


" An AjPHA member may register horses in his/her name"

If you are a member then you can. At least one of your parents should be/they will ask for as a responsible party but your name shows on the papers.
