Remember that in keeping with Council Regulation (EU) 2015/262 by the Commission, a horse is considered identified when its Equine ID Document (Passport) has been issued, not when the registration request is presented before the LG PRE Stud Book office.


To guarantee the correct application of this legislation, and considering that the LG PRE Stud Book offices needs a variable amount of time to identify the horses and issue the passport prior to the deadline established by the legislation, the following should be taken into consideration:



  • - For foals born in the first semester of the year (between Jan 1 and June 30), registration should be requested before December 31.
  • - For foals born in the second semester of the year (between July 1 and December 31), registration should be requested before the 30th of June of the following year.
  • Nevertheless, it is the breeder’s responsibility to know and comply with the current legislation regarding the identification of horses within the established timeline.



    Remember that the current rate for the Registration Service (Service 103) is eighty-five euros (€85) per horse, which includes VAT. Full-fledged members of ANCCE may take advantage of the corresponding discounts for this service.


    Lastly, the Stud Book office strongly recommends that you meet the deadline indicated above, as the fee to register a horse after the deadline is three hundred euros (€300) per horse.


    Should you have any doubts, contact your local representative or the main PRE Stud Book office.
