New Passport Application
Apply for a new HPA Passport
A horse should only have one passport, you will need to do everything to check that it has not previously been issued with a passport, before applying for a new one.
This form must be completed by both the owner and a veterinarian and returned to the HPA for endorsement, until this has been done this is not a valid document. Under EU legislation all equines must hold a DEFRA approved passport and (as of 1st July 2009) all horses must be micro-chipped when they are first identified. Equines that are eligible for registration with a breed society should refer to the appropriate society for passports. It is illegal to transport horses without a passport.
Previously Registered With Another Passport Issuing Organisation?
If the equine has previously held a passport within Europe please contact the issuing office to amend ownership details. This passport can then be ‘over-stamped’ by the HPA.
Third Party Insurance Cover for Polo ponies: In order to be entitled to third party liability cover under the HPA membership insurance, passports must be registered to current paid up members of the HPA with a handicap up to and including 2 goals; and non-HPA passports must be ‘over-stamped’ by the HPA. NB This cover extends to a maximum of 10 ponies per member.
If your horse has a microchip number you can ENTER IT HERE to see if it has an existing passport.
To get a new passport you will need to arrange for your vet to visit and complete this and send it in along with the passport.
