Change of Ownership

Firstly, congratulations on the purchase of your new horse. It is a requirement under the Horse Passport (England) Regulations to register a change of ownership with the relevant Passport Issuing Organisation (PIO) within 30 days of acquiring a horse. However, if you have gone past this date, please contact the office at bhhsuk@gmail.com

The British Hanoverian Society is able to change ownership on all Hanoverian Horses and also other German breed societies. On purchasing your new horse, you should have received a Change of Ownership form.  Please add your name and address to the back of the Change of Ownership form and return this to the office along with a covering letter stating that you are the new owner. (If you did not receive the form with the passport, please contact the office bhhsuk@gmail.com)

The address of the office is: BHHS, Willow Barn, Shepherds Lane, Stanley, Nottinghamshire NG17 3JG

When you receive back this certificate, fill in and sign page 10 of the passport (older passports have no page numbers). If you have no Certificate of Ownership (these often get lost), send us a letter giving the 826006********* or DE ************* number and the name and address of the person you purchased it from along with a copy of the receipt of purchase.

If the horse is unnamed we can also register a name for you. The registered name needs to start with the same initial as the Sire.

The charge for change of ownership is:

£20 for members
£35 for non members, this includes associate membership to the Society.  Thereafter it is £20 per horse.

If you would like to register a name, the name must start with the same letter as the stallions name, the charge is £20, please enclose a cheque payable to ‘The BHHS’
