Horse Passports


Since the Horse Passport law was enforced in 2004, all horses in the Great Britain must be issued with a passport and be entered on the National Equine Database.

Penalties for not holding a passport include a statutory maximum fine of £5,000 per offence or imprisonment for a term not exceeding 3 months - or both.

Since 1st August 2009, when new legislation came into force, you must carry your horse’s passport with you each time you make a journey made by vehicle - regardless of its distance or destination.
