You need to get her scanned to see if she is chipped. Her details may well be listed with the chip company.

Not being a "breed" then you're free to choose whoever you like. How about looking into this company for services/price - www.horsepassportagency.co.uk/

With my show cob (Irish Draught Cross) we got the best deal thought the Arab Horse Society when he needed a passport - www.arabhorsesociety.org/studbookregistration.htm

she is a hanoverian cross percheron.

She was transported to me without one. I know she needs one, which is why i am trying to sort it out, but is a bit confusing to a first time owner, so hoping you guys can help! grin

is there a way to find out if she is registered? apparently she used to hold a passport but it seems to have gotten lost. i do not know who she was passported with before though!

Is your horse a specific breed - this will point you in the direction of which agency to use...

Give us more info and we can make suggestions..

As Incapinka says it is a legal requirement to have one when you travel but it looks as if you're on the case which is fine.

Are you in the UK? Only it's just a legal requirement for all horses, ponies and donkeys to have one before they are 6 months old and you are only meant to buy a horse who has one. This is also to prevent stolen animals being sold. You can also get a hefty fine for having a horse/transporting one without a passport. There are a number of agencies who provide passports. I would google it and select one ASAP. Good luck!

i have just got my first horse. She does not have a passport. I think i know her registered name, but dont know how to go about finding her breeding.

I need to get her a passport, but how do i chose a company (?) to do it through?

all of this passport business is new to me so forgive me for not having a clue!
