3. Passports: It is a legal requirement that all horses are accompanied to stud with their passports; we will check the identity of the horse with the passport on arrival. Be advised that there is a section in the passport on horses Not intended for human consumption that needs to be signed to ensure we can use the necessary drugs to treat your horse appropriately.
4. Health status: All mares arriving here will undergo a brief clinical examination to ensure they are of an adequate level of health. They will be allowed to stay only if the results are satisfactory. Please don't bring any horses that show signs of disease like; off their feed, snotty noses, diarrhoea, swollen lymph nodes, coughing, poor body condition, signs of ringworm or lice infestation.

6. Worming: Mares and foals are required to be wormed regularly. If worming is necessary whilst under our care then the owner will be charged accordingly.
7. Mare Booking-in Form: Legal owner or keeper is requested to fill in and sign this form when they bring mare to stud. If the mare is sent with a third party the form must be downloaded, completed and sent with the horse.
