Horse Passports & Equine Identification

Back to Client Management

Below you will find guidance for owners and managers of equestrian establishments with regards to Horse Passports and Equine Identification, namely the legal obligations of horse and yard owners, and understanding these laws. This includes templates to confirm receipt of, or refusal to permit retention of, Horse Passports. This guidance is free to access and has been sourced from reputable sources. Please note that a majority of platforms have not updated their guidance from the previous guidance since the replacement legislation valid from October 2018. 

The information contained on the Yard Owner Hub is provided for guidance only, and we encourage all users to consider their own circumstances and take professional advice where appropriate in relation to the management of their business and the equines in their care.

You may also find useful webinars or podcasts covering these subjects on our Webinars page.

These resources are available free of charge to all, and always will be. All we ask is that if you use any of the documentation, or find the information contained herein useful, please consider adding your yard to LiveryList, and/ or making a secure donation to help cover the work and research that goes into providing these resources:
