How do I protect my horse/pony?

Horses are part of the family, but given their value can be an attractive target for thieves.

Horses must not be sold without a Horse Passport, but it is also useful to keep colour photographs of your horse (side, front and rear, and in its summer and winter coats).

Tag your horse by freeze-marking, hoof-marking or microchip implanting.

Tack should be securely marked using electronic tagging, post-code letter stamps or microchipping. Keep a list with identification details.

Park your horsebox/trailer in a well-lit area where you can keep an eye on it and consider the use of a wheel-clamp or ground anchor. Secure your horse-box when at events.
