The Eriskay Pony Society

"Protecting and Promoting Scotland's Ancient Hebridean Ponies"

Passports & Registration

All equines are required under EU law to have a passport. The Eriskay Pony Society is recognised for the purposes of issuing horse passports in accordance with EU regulations.

Please note that it is a legal requirement that all foals must be micro chipped before they can be registered. This must be done by a vet who must attached the microchip bar code to the diagram form and stamp and sign the form. 

The Registrar of the Society handles all registrations and other entries for the Stud Book. A person seeking to register a pony must be the owner of the pony.

To comply with government regulations a foal must be registered by 31 December in the year it was born, or by 6 months after it's birth, whichever is later.

Applications for registration must be accompanied by the appropriate fee: £20 for fillies and £15 for colts. Where the foal is the first progeny of a mare, no registration fee is payable. In this case a DNA test will be required for the mare.

New breeders are also required to join the Society and to obtain a prefix before registering their foals. Please contact the Registrar for more information.

Completed forms should be sent to the Registrar:

Nigel McWilliam, 16 Bonaly Wester, Edinburgh EH13 0RQ.

The Registrar is also the contact if you wish to transfer ownership, register a prefix, or update any other information.

The email address for the Registrar is Registrar@eriskaypony.com

Unique Equine Life Number - UELN

All ponies who have been issued with an Equine Passport should have a UELN. The UELN is a 16 digit number that identifies the pony and the organisation that issued the passport. The UELN stays with the pony for life and never changes.

Some older Eriskay Pony Society passports were issued before UELNs were in operation. Passports that are sent in for changes will be checked and if the UELN is missing it will be added at the same time. The UELN can also be added at the owners request independent of other changes.

If you do not have a UELN on your passport it can be obtained from the Registrar if required.
