UP TO DATE PASSPORTS

Posted: Tue 4th July 2017

 


 


You should ensure that your passport for your pony/horse has the up-to-date owner recorded in the passport.  It has been brought to our attention that many of the horses and ponies competing this season have not completed this transfer.  Please note that


this is a legal requirement in order to comply with DEFRA legislation.  Please contact the passport issuing authority for your animal.
