The Eriskay Pony Society

Protecting and Promoting Scotland's Ancient Hebridean Ponies

Passport Changes

Changes to passports will be required in the following circumstances :

  • Change of ownership
  • Change of address
  • Change of food chain status
  • Change of keeper
  • Retrospective microchipping
  • Gelding of a colt
  • Stallion Licensing 
  • Death of the pony. 

Fees for changes are listed on the Services and Prices page. 

In all cases except change of ownership and retrospective microchipping the owner must return the passport to the society so that it can be updated within 30 days of the event. 

In the event that the Society is not informed within the 30 days we are obliged to report this to the Regulator.

On change of ownership, the seller must give the passport to the buyer who is responsible for returning it for update. 

The Compulsory Microchipping page details the requirements and process for this. 

Pony Deaths

Current law requires the passport for a deceased pony to be sent the Eriskay Pony Society for cancellation. This must be done within 30 days of the date of the death otherwise the regulatory authority will be informed when the passport is cancelled. The passport will be retained by the Society unless its return is requested by the owner.


All notifications of changes should be sent with any supporting documentation to the Registrar:


Nigel McWilliam, Wester Invervar, Glenlyon, Aberfeldy, PH15 2NJ. 


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


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