registering a horse

Postby okiegirl2008 » Wed Jul 30, 2008 2:17 pm

Hi everyone, I just got me a horse and had a question. The people we bought her from did not know much about her. They gave us her previous owners info and told us she was a buckskin paint. Now they emailed me and told me the previous owner said she is a palomino paint. I want to get her registered...where do I even begin?

Check the Pinto Horse Association of America, Inc. It is a color registry.

I think I would start with the American Paint Horse Association, and go from there.

Women and cats are going to do what they want, men and dogs would be wise to accept this.

We raise and show APHA. APHA is a closed registry. Unless her horse is out of APHA registered parents who have their DNA on file at APHA, her mare cannot be registered with APHA.

The American Paint Horse Association will not register grade stock.

Ok. Since no one seems to know anything about this horse, why would you assume she is grade stock or that her parents might not be registered? Granted, it is a long shot, but the only thing that seems to be a given is that she is a Paint of some kind - hence the suggestion of starting with the American Paint Horse Association and going from there. When in doubt, start with the obvious!

Well considering that most of the stallion breeding reports and registrations are done online now, and apparently she is the horse's third owner, and I am going to guess that she was not given any APHA forms or papers. If she was given the info, she wouldn't be asking here.

I do not profess to be an expert at the intricacies(sp?) of horse registration, and I'm sorry to appear dense, but you lost me.

You assume a lot, who knows where the papers may be? they may just not have transfered between the first and second owner. I would start with the breeder of the horse to see who is registered.... the subject horse, the mare and/or the stallion. Athough the Pinto assoc. is a shoe in...but then again who really cares ( sorry just my opinion on the pinto assoc.)

Thanks everyone! So basically, I need to call the breeder and ask if the her parents were registered?

Yes that would be the best place to start. Sometimes horses are registered, but sometimes people for one reason or another do not transfer the papers to the new buyers. I also know that if the sire and dam were registered, but your horses papers were not sent in it gets very expensive to register as they get older. You can check out the apha website to see fees at www.apha.com.
good luck

She's a pretty mare. How old is she?

Here is the APHA phone number. Call them and ask what you need to find out from your horse's breeder.
The people there are very nice and will help you. (817) 834-APHA (2742)

BTW, the many of the horses that show in the Pinto Stock horse classes are also registered with the American Paint Horse Association. The Pinto Association serves a purpose and fills a need for many people.

Good luck.
