Postage outside the UK
The Royal Mail has significantly increased postage charges from January 1st and while we can absorb some of this we will have to raise our charge for postage outside the UK to £7 with immediate effect. Please note that there is one charge per order not per passport, so if you are applying for more than one at the same time then there will only be one £7 charge.
Horses on loan
We have seen a disturbing increase in disputes where a horse has been loaned to a third party who then refuses to return it and/or the passport. In almost all these cases there is no documentation to support the loan and so proving ownership becomes difficult, especially if the owner has not transferred the horse into their name in the first place. To try to help avoid such disputes, we have uploaded a loan form (click here) which can be used.
We are pleased to confirm all passports issued by DEFRA-recognised studbooks (which includes the IMHPS) are now recognised by the EU following third-country listing (recognition) of the UK and its DEFRA approved equine studbooks.
