How Do I... Change the name of my horse?
A recorded owner may request a change of the horse’s name provided the horse has no
registered progeny, is not an imported animal, has never been exported, has not received any points in previous IAHA or AHA programs and has not been
issued a Certificate of Registration for Racing. The Certificate of Registration must be
submitted with the signature(s) of the recorded owner(s) and the name change fee. Upon
approval by the Association, an amended Certificate of Registration will be issued to the
recorded owner of the horse. See Article
This name change applies only to domestic horses (Article 1001)
or horses imported in utero (Article 1004).
Will I be able to identify a horse after its name has
changed? Yes, horses can still be located using the former name either
by Association personnel or by individuals searching names
via DataSource Online. DataSource will
display former names in parentheses behind the registered name.
