Do I need a passport for my horse?

From 1st July 2009, it is an offence for a keeper with 'primary care responsibilities ' eg. full livery yards, those caring for horses under a loan agreement, breeders, trainers and transporters, to be in possession of a horse that has not been issued with a passport.

Following the introduction of compulsory passports for all horses in 2005, new European Union (EU) regulations, which came into effect on 1st July 2009, mean that all foals born must now be microchipped before an owner can apply for an equine passport.
