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.
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 Certificate, signed by the seller.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org)
The address to send your Change of Ownership is: BHHS, PO Box 10740 (Walk 29), SUTTON-IN-ASHFIELD, Nottinghamshire, NG17 0EF
If you do not have the 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. The receipt of purchase needs to include the passport number, microchip, date of birth, name and address and both signatures from the buyer and seller. We also may need to contact previous owners, so please include as much information as possible.
Please do not send the passport in the post unless asked.
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. Please note that we will only register a prefix if you are the breeder.
The charge for change of ownership is:
£35 plus £3 for postage
PLEASE DO NOT SEND CASH THROUGH THE POST
If you would like to register a name, the name must start with the same letter as the stallions name, the charge is £30
Please drop us an email at email@example.com so we can send you the relavant forms.
