Definition: If a horse has papers, or is papered that means it is registered with a breed registry. Usually the horse's pedigree and physical characteristics will be recorded. A registration number is assigned and most registries require the horse be given a unique name. In many countries it is illegal to sell the papers separately from the horse and to ask more money for the horse with papers than without. The registration papers often document the names of the owners, and in some cases its performance record.
