If the person you purchased an American Quarter Horse from is not the current owner according to AQHA records, you will need to complete multiple transfers. Check with the seller to ensure they have a transfer report putting the horse into their name
If you’re not buying a horse from the owner on record, check with your sellers to ensure they have a transfer report putting the horse into their name before you complete your purchase. AQHA does not knowingly allow skipped transfers, but you can send multiple transfers in at the same time and we’ll update the horse’s record and put the horse in your name.
Here's how to do it:
- Include a signed transfer or bill of sale for each ownership change; this is required in addition to the original registration certificate.
- When multiple changes of ownership are being reported, the transfer fee is still $25 if the ultimate owner is a current member.
- If the ultimate owner is not a current AQHA member, the fee is $80, which includes a one-year membership.
