Bought a new horse? Transfer it online!

APHA is first stock-horse breed to offer online transfers of ownership

APHA is excited to offer an online option for transfers of ownership of registered horses. Users must have the original, signed registration certificate in hand and a current APHA membership — only a single ownership update, from the owner of record to the new buyer, is eligible for online transfer processing (multiple transfers of ownership for a horse must be sent to APHA directly). To get started, the buyer must sign up as a new user at the APHA ShowDay site (https://apha.myshowday.com/) and connect it to their existing APHA membership. Once your account is validated, select “Transfer” and walk through the steps to transfer ownership of your Paint. Questions? askapha@apha.com
