    Default Is there any way to find out information about my horse?

    All I know is she was bred and born in Florida as a jumper. She's a Thoroughbred, never raced. I know she was on the Florida hunters, and jumpers circuit. She came to VA a few years ago.

    I'm desperate to find information on her other than what I have, and I was wondering if anyone knows any circuits that keep documentation that is available to the public/online?

    Does she have an identifying tattoo?

    Any passport or registration papers?

    Do you know the names of her dam and/or sire?

    Do you know if the name she has was her original name?

    If you know any of the above then there's going to be record of her available.

    No tattoo, papers were lost in between owners, do not know her bloodlines. I have her "original name", but it is somewhat common.

    I was told she went for a pretty penny when she was a youngin'. I'm willing to do some digging, but I have no clue about anything that goes on in Florida...

    If you know her name and the name of the rider and the sort of classes she was competed in then you'll be able to get a record of any entries and winnings.

    i dont know if this is exactly what you meant, but if shes shown at rated shos her whole show record from about 2007 forward should be on the USEF website under horse results search.

    That would be from 2005 forward.

    If you know what division the horse showed in it may be possible to search back to 1999 by division.

    As an example:

    Pine Tree - How are you able to go back that far? Every time I search on USEF I am only able to see results from 2005 on.

    Thanks for the info!

    In the example I gave I changed the year way back to 1999. Look at the complete URL and you'll see the year field.
    This only works if you know the division the horse showed in. Although if you have a lot of time on your hands you can search several divisions. It's just a little time consuming.

    I have googled her. It's all restaurants or farms/ranches.

    I've also googled her previous owner. The only horse associated with that google search was the horse that was getting sold with my horse.

    She was born 2001 from what I was told. She could be 10 at this point.

    Use the "advanced search" function in Google. It's just to the right of the search box. Put the "horse's name" in quotes, just like this, the rider's name with quotes, too. Use the line that says "without these words".

    Probably not her, this is a NY bred who raced a lot.

    She's not tattooed and never raced so that's not her :P

    Is La Luna her JC name or a 'show name'.?

    You mentioned earlier that she was bred to be a show horse. That's unlikely but possible. Not many TB's are bred specifically for a show career.

    Just because there is no tat doesn't mean the horse wasn't on the track for training.

    You can look at all the La Luna's on USEF and see if one matches.

    I think it would be helpful if the previous owner can supply a little more info.

    Her "show" name is Bella Luna. It was on her purchase papers and the paper I got from her owner.

    She was not bred for the track, from my understanding.

    Quoted from her sales paper: "Bred & Born & Trained in FL for jumpers."

    She went for $12,000 as a 3 year old, but her previous owner can not get in touch with the lady she bought her from. I've tried to get more information, but she isn't emailing me back anymore.
