The TGCA is the only officially recognised Breed society for the Traditional Gypsy Cob, meaning only the TGCA can issue a passport with the official breed within as well as recognised breeding where applicable.
While the issuance of basic ID passports is allowed through any PIO in the UK, as non-breed documents, it is clearly stated by DEFRA that no horse's breed may be included.
