EUSAM - Passports

 

About a horse passport.

 

A horse passport can be issued by an authority which is recognized by the PVE. The passport belongs to the horse and should not be destroyed as long as the horse is alive. The horse is identified by the passport and a microchip and / or markings (sketch).

 

In the passport notes are written down about vaccinations and treatments, which may affect the flesh of the horse. At slaughter the passport must be presented to check whether the meat is 'safe'. As breeders of American miniature horses we usually do not think about this, but the passport has the primary function to ensure food safety.

 

The passport has, in principle, nothing to do with studbook registration. Some studbooks use the passport more or less as a pedigree document and put all kinds of notes and stamps in it. This is not the purpose of the passport, but it is not forbidden.

 

Horse studbooks, which have a longer history, do not use the passport for that purpose. The EUSAM has also adopted this good habit and thus keeps the passport and pedigree documents strictly separated.

 

EUSAM provides a valid passport for a horse and keeps the document with the horse. Pedigree documents are not included in the passport.

 

A studbook cannot declare the validity of the passport. This can only be done by the PVE and if you do not trust it, you will have to inquire at the PVE.
