USEF does not accept agent's signatures as authorization for an ownership
transfer. A parent (or legal guardian) signature is required for a minor.
If the signature of the last recorded owner is not available, an
must be completed and notarized. It must explain why the required signature
is not available and submitted with proof of ownership (bill of sale,
cancelled check, registration papers).
Transfers become effective the date that the proper forms (with required
signature(s)) and fees are received at the USEF office. (GR1105)
All horses competing in United States Equestrian Federation non-breed
restricted licensed competitions with Hunter, Hunter Breeding, Pony
Hunter Breeding, Jumper and Hunter Seat Equitation classes (except
those activities enumerated in GR901.9, items 1-9) must be properly
identified and must obtain a registration number from USHJA. A registration
number for each horse must be entered on all entry forms for USEF licensed
competitions. Only one registration number will be issued per horse and
must remain with the horse throughout its career. USEF Life Recorded horses
recorded before November 30, 2008 are exempt from the requirement to have a
USHJA Registration Number and their USEF Recording number will serve as a
USHJA Registration number.
