Equine Microchipping

In June 2018 a new law requiring horse owners to microchip their animals was introduced to prevent abuse and improve welfare, deter theft and fraudulent sales as well as being helpful in managing disease outbreaks, mapping the horse population and ensuring rapid communication with owners.

From October 2020 it became mandatory for all owners to microchip their horses, ponies and donkeys. The new Central Equine Database will then allow local authorities and police to track down the owners. 

If horse owners do not microchip their horses by October 2020 they could face sanctions from their local authority including a compliance notice and, as a last resort, a fine of up to £200.

Microchipping ensures every horse, pony and donkey is each identified by using a microchip. Each microchip, which is only the size of a grain of rice, holds a unique number which can be read by a microchip scanner. The whole procedure takes just a few minutes to do, and lasts a lifetime.
