DECEASED EQUINE

If the equine dies or is destroyed, please return the passport to The TGCA Ltd within 30 days with a covering letter confirming the date the equine passed away. If you wish the passport to be returned to you once it has been stamped to show that it is no longer valid, you will need to enclose a stamped addressed envelope or sufficient funds for the passport to be returned by 1st class recorded delivery


Notes


FOALS

A foal must be identified by six months of age or by 31st December of the year of its birth. If a foal is not identified within this time, Part II of Section II will be signed by the PIO in order to exclude the equine from the human food chain.

The passport will be stamped ‘replacement’ if the equine is outside the above time frame.

An un-weaned foal will require a passport regardless of its age if it is being moved without its Dam or foster mother, or sent for slaughter for human consumption.


ADULT EQUINES


All passport applications made for adult equines, who have not been previously identified will automatically be signed out of the food chain by the PIO, as it is unlikely that accurate medicinal records exist. The passport will be stamped ‘replacement’.

a) Horses registered on the studbook at any level are entitled to enter TGCA classes and competitions (note any stallions must hold their show license in addition.)

b) Historic Stallions on the Studbook

Historic stallions are carefully and individually selected at the discretion of the TGCA in recognition of their collective importance in the evolution and ongoing refinement of this breed. Historic Stallions will be eligible for entry into the TGCA MAIN studbook.
