I left a message on her answering machine a number of days ago but have had no response. As I say, I think having a call from some unknown stranger may not have been favourable. I was hoping to find someone on here who may know her and her email address and then I could contact her that way and explain the situation clearly.
Sorry to be vague about who she is but I don't come in this forum and wasn't sure about etiquette of naming people?

Reason: removed private details
Cloverbarley, you probably should not have left too much detail on the voicemail, but since you did, just keep trying - we race people are notoriously bad about returning voicemails/emails quickly (usually because we are outside so much). Not all are this way, but a lot IME.
As for why we don't provide papers - because horses that we've sold as riding horses sometimes end up back racing and that is sometimes not a good thing - happened to me and others I know, even with a sales contract. Also, the breeder may not have the papers, on the owner may not either - the papers stay with the trainer or the racetrack they were at last and often don't get back to the owner when the horse is sold. There is usually no reason to need the papers as long as you can prove the horse is JC registered... Easy enough to do with a free membership to the JC site and checking Registration Status.
