Hi, I have recently bought my boy who had been shipped over from Ireland a few months ago. He has a White passport and the microchip matches the identification number etc I just don't know how and who I have to send it off to to get the ownership changed into my name? I've looked through the passport itself and can't seem to find any info on where to do it..any advice?

Hi - when I bought my ISH he came with the green book/passport/registration stuff for the Irish Horse Society. I wrote to them, returning the green book and they amended and sent back to me. Sorry cannot remember if there was a charge but seem to possibly recall not. Sent the book traceable post tho. Good luck

Look at irish horse sport on google. My lad has a white passport and I sent it back to Ireland with a form filled out and they changed the ownership for me.

Hello, my boy came with the white passport. I just had to write a letter which gave my full name and address, and had to send it to the address (which was in the middle of my passport - in Sligo i seem to remember!) I also had to send a cheque for the change to be made, if you ring them they will tell you how much.

I would recommend you send it recorded just in case.

Irish horse board? Mines passported with them. Piece of cake to change and had the passport back within three days. I emailed and found the change ofownership form online. Dead easy. Mine says Irish Horse Board Identification Document on the front. It's a passport for horses who don't have their breeding registered.

I've got a cob who's got an Irish Sports Passport; am struggling to find who to send the passport to as well!

WHY can't they make it easier?
It's extremely easy. Just contact Horse Sport Ireland (links above), they are the central register for all horses bred in Ireland. If you wish to register the horse in the UK they can advise also.
