Older horses, some mares, and some stallions have the old style of BWP paperwork. These papers are white and green with black print. On the back of these papers is a block for the new owner to fill out their information and for the seller to sign. These papers can only be transferred if the seller signs them. Once these papers are signed they should be sent to the Registrar of BWP/NAD with a bill of sale and the appropriate fee for a transfer. Foals of 1996 have papers that are designed to fit inside passports. These papers are pink. There is not a place on these papers for a transfer. These papers must be sent to the Registrar of BWP/NAD with a bill of sale signed by the seller of the horse and the appropriate fee.
Foals born in 1997 or after have paperwork in a passport format. These have a place on page 16-17 for transfer of ownership. The date (day/month/year) belongs in the first column, the new owners name belongs in the second column, the new owners address belongs in the third column, the new owners nationality belongs in the fourth column, and the new owners signature belongs in the fifth column. The seller’s signature MUST be in the sixth column. Then the papers and a bill of sale should be sent to the Registrar of the BWP/NAD with the appropriate fee for official transfer.
