It is a legal requirement that all horses are transported with their passport. On admittance to the Equine Centre your passport will be checked by the intern or clinician overseeing the care of your horse. Once the passport number has been recorded, and the section IX declaration checked, we usually ask owners to hold on to the passport, rather than leave it with us while their horse is here. Where appropriate, we will take a photocopy of your horse's passport to keep on the case record.
Clause 9 of our Consent Form states that the horse has been signed not for human consumption in section IX of their passport. It is therefore important that you keep a copy of the Consent Form with your records. This will be checked when the horse is admitted.
