Passports without Section IX (Medicinal Treatment)

There may be a small number of passports issued prior to 2003 that do not contain Section IX. Passports without section IX are invalid. The Society did undertake a recall at the time, but to be certain please check your passport/s for Section IX. If they do not contain this section, return them immediately to the Office for updating. It is an offence not to do so under the Horse Passport Legislation. We will have to make a small charge of £2 to cover P&P. We thank you for your co-operation.
