Passport Update 18Mar22

We continue to work hard with all parties to clarify the rules about processing Horse Sport Ireland passports. Following consultation with Defra and HSI, we are still fine-tuning protocols for naming and transfers of ownership on these passports, but we have now done a small number of trial runs.  There is a new naming form on our website. We will be able to update foal papers to a full passport, provided that there is DNA and a covering certificate (we can check the latter online). We are still clarifying some details with Horse Sport Ireland with regard to sport horse passports.       
The costs will be:

  • Change of ownership: £20 inc VAT
  • Overstamping:  £30 inc vat
  • Naming a previously unnamed horse: £30 inc VAT. 

Discounts: Any two of the above: £40 inc vat. All three of the above: £50 inc VATFull passports will be charged at the same rate as passports for our own horses, and the same rules apply regarding the need to be a member to register a purebred Irish Draught. A full list of fees will be published as soon as possible. 

Thank you for your patience. We will update you further when we have more information.
