Change of ownership

You have bought a horse and would like to record the change of ownership of your horse in the horse passport? We are looking forward to your request.

You would like to order a change of ownership (sticker for the horse passport)?

According to §44a para. 2 of the Livestock Transport Regulations, the change of ownership must be entered in the horse passport.

For horses that are not currently registered in competition sport and are not actively kept as broodmares, you have the possibility to apply for a change of ownership certificate (sticker for the horse passport) here.

The change of ownership costs 40,-- Euro.

If you pay by credit card, the data for charging the credit card will be requested separately by e-mail after the application for security reasons. You will then immediately receive the proof of change of ownership and the statement of account for your credit card.

If you pay by invoice, an invoice will be sent to you by e-mail after you have submitted your application. The proof of ownership will only be sent after receipt of payment.

Please affix this sticker on the designated page 9-12 (ownership details) in your horse passport.
For horse passports from the year 2017 onwards, it is pages 18-20 (details of ownership).
