Protecting and Promoting Scotland's Ancient Hebridean Ponies
Passport Issuing Organisations
There are essentially 2 types of equine passport issuing organisations, those that are authorised to issue equine passports for any equine, and those that are authorised to issue equine passports for a specific breed. Those that issue passports for a specific breed must maintain a studbook for that breed.
The Eriskay Pony Society was recognised as a breed society for the Eriskay Pony and to issue passports for the Eriskay Pony in 1995. The Eriskay Pony Society only issues passports for Eriskay Ponies and Eriskay Pony part breds. Any pony with a passport issued by the Eriskay Pony Society is recognised as an Eriskay Pony or an Eriskay Pony part bred under EU and UK legislation.
