Horse Bill of Sale basics

If you're buying or selling a horse, it may be helpful to put the purchase agreement in writing. A Horse Bill of Sale will take into consideration the different options when buying or selling a horse, such as registry papers, vet bills, price, and transfer of ownership.

When should I use the Horse Bill of Sale?

You should use the Horse Bill of Sale if:

  • You're buying or selling a horse and want to put the contract in writing.
  • You're planning to buy or sell a horse and want to see what kind of preparations need to be considered.
  • You're giving a horse away or receiving a horse as a gift.

How do you write a bill of sale for a horse?

Making a Horse Bill of Sale online is simple. Just answer a few questions and Rocket Lawyer will build your document for you. Consider these questions beforehand to make the process speedier:

  • When was the horse born?
  • Was the horse's Sire registered with a breeder association?
  • Was the horse's Dam registered with a breeder association?
  • Will the horse be examined by a veterinarian prior to the sale? If so, what is the name and address of the vet that will perform the horse's examination?

If you don't have all of the details you need, you can skip questions and save your document for later.

Do you need a bill of sale for a horse?

Depending on your state, a Horse Bill of Sale may be required. For example, California, Florida, and Kentucky require a Horse Bill of Sale every time a horse is sold, bought, or transferred.

How do I get ownership papers for my horse?

The process for obtaining ownership papers for your horse may vary depending on the organization your horse is registered with. It is recommended that you contact that organization for more information.
