Non-pedigree passports / ID documents
In order for a foal or horse to be registered in the Irish Sport Horse Studbook or the Irish Draught Horse Studbook, both their parents must be registered in the Irish Horse Register and the animal must be eligible to be included in the Studbook. If your horse has no pedigree or is not eligible for inclusion in either studbook, you can obtain an identification document/non-pedigree passport.
STEP 1: CALL YOUR VET
Your vet will complete the marking chart for your foal/horse, microchip the animal and attach the microchip bar code to the marking chart.
STEP 2: SEND YOUR MARKING CHART TO HSI WITH FEE
Return the completed marking chart and appropriate fee (see our current fees) to Horse Sport Ireland.
STEP 3: YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR PASSPORT
