Transporting horses

The Brexit transition period has ended and new rules on moving horses, ponies or donkeys in or out of the EU now apply. This page is currently out of date.

All horses, ponies and donkeys must have a horse passport. Horses cannot be transported or exported without their passports.

You should not transport a horse in a way that may cause it harm or distress. There are welfare regulations for transporting live animals, including for commercial reasons.
