Rachel has written several posts about horse registration papers. Having a horse's registration papers is not the equivalent of legal ownership of the horse. The registration with the breed registry may not have been updated for many reasons. However, Rachel McCart provides an excellent reason for getting the registration updated in your name as soon as you buy the horse.
|Who owns the horse if breed|
registration is not transferred?
This is really good reason for updating the registry papers with the USIHC if you buy an Icelandic horse.
