Horse Passports and Micro-chipping

Horse Passports and Micro-chipping

Horse owners are legally obliged to obtain a passport and microchip for all horses.

EU legislation dictates that all horse owners must be in possession of a horse passport to identify themselves as the owner of the animal and to have a detailed description of your animal including the microchip number.

Where to obtain a horse passport

Horse Passports can be obtained from the Irish Horse Board. Phone (01) 5053584.
