Microchipping Ponies!

Category: General, HPS News

UK legislation dictates that all equines domiciled in England and Wales must be microchipped by October 2020 and those in Scotland by 28 March 2021.

At the time your pony is microchipped, the vet will affix a barcode on the passport. After the visit, please email the Society giving the 15 digit number and the pony's record will be updated. The Central Equine database will be updated by the Society as will the Scottish Equine database.

Full information on the legislation for those with postcodes in Scotland is given here: https://www.gov.scot/publications/horse-passports-guidance-owners-keepers-veterinarians-local-authorities-scotland-2020/. The book will be sent out to owners and keepers of ponies.
