I'm buying an American Quarter Horse. How do I transfer him into my name?

A few documents must be sent to AQHA to transfer an American Quarter Horse's ownership.

When transferring a horse's ownership, you'll need:

  1. A completed transfer report form or signed bill of sale.
  2. The original certificate of registration. 

More helpful tips when transferring a horse:

  • Before you purchase an American Quarter Horse, it’s always a good idea to ensure that the seller has the original registration certificate as well as a transfer report.
  • Contact AQHA Customer Service to make sure that the person you’re purchasing the horse from is the owner on record or authorized to sign paperwork for the owner
  • To double-check ownership, you can purchase an ownership record for the horse via AQHA Services
