If you have a horse registered with another studbook you may wish to have that animal recorded in the Irish Horse Register for breeding or competition purposes. The horse will retain its original passport and breed code but will be recorded in the IHR. For endorsement, please send the passport and fee along with a completed Endorsement Application Form to Horse Sport Ireland.
