Every horse is now legally obliged to have a passport and be microchipped. A vaccination certificate will not suffice for this purpose. Within 30 days of purchase you are required to send the passport to the organisation that issued it, so that you can be entered as the new owner both on the passport and in the Central Equine Database.
If a passport does not accompany the horse it is essential that you apply for one straight away. Depending on breed etc. we will advise you on the most appropriate place to obtain a passport for your new horse. We will check for a microchip, and if one is not found, we will insert one.
