Transfer of ownership – Legal Requirement from July 1st 2014

  • 30 June 2014, 20:04

On foot of a Statutory Instrument signed into law by the Minister for Agriculture Food and the Marine, it is now a legal requirement to report changes of horse ownership to the Passport Issuing Authority who issued the original passport for a horse. This applies for any horses whose ownership changes after July 1st, 2014.

When a horse is sold the seller should complete the form (download HERE) and give it to the buyer along with the animals passport. The buyer should then complete their section of the form and return it to Horse Sport Ireland along with the passport and the appropriate fee.
