It is the law for all equines to have a passport. The NPS is authorised by DEFRA to issue Equine Passports
The NPS is the custodian of the British Riding Pony Stud Book which is for ponies up to 15 hands who are
cross breds between Britsh Native Mountain and Moorland breeds and Arabs or Thoroughbreds.
Both parents must be known and proven via a service certificate or a DNA test.
The sire must be a Licensed Stallion with three generations of proven ancestry. Pure Bred Mountain and Moorland ponies are not eligible for registration in the
Britsh Riding Pony Stud Book, they should be registered with their Native Breed
Society (see Types & Breeds section for contact details).
The registration process normally includes production of an Equine Passport.
The NPS can also produce Equine Passports for ponies of unknown breeding.
Registration of ponies for showing: Ponies do not have to be registered with the
NPS on an annual basis for them to be eligible for entry in NPS classes. Ponies
are eligible for entry in NPS classes based on the Breed Society with which
they are registered and the type of Equine Passport they hold. There is no annual
fee required for ponies to enter NPS classes.
All NPS BRP Stud Book Forms, Guidelines and Fees can be downloaded via the
