Application for Passports
For new passports, see the Registration of Foals page.
Passports may still be acquired for older ponies, providing they are eligible for registration in the Dales Pony Society stud book and there is no existing passport for the animal. Applications should be made to the DPS Registrar.
Before the passport is issued to the owner, the Society will sign Part II of Section II to permanently exclude the horse from the human food chain.
If the passport is lost, a duplicate may be requested from the Secretary using the Duplicate Passport Request Duplicate_Passport_Nov2022
On receipt of appropriate fees and checks, a duplicate passport may be issued, in which Part II of Section II will have been signed by the Society, to permanently exclude the animal from the human food chain. The duplicate passport will be stamped as a duplicate, and should the original passport ever be found, it must be returned to the Society immediately.
Transfers of Ownership
New owners should transfer their pony within 30 days of purchase.
For transferring details and forms see Transfer of Ownership
Return of the Passport
In the event of the death of a Dales pony, the passport must be returned to the Society for cancellation within 30 days of the death. Owners may request the return of a passport following cancellation provided a SAE is enclosed.
Castration of Colts
A passport should also be returned to the secretary for updating on castration of a colt.
