Our National Breed Association is a Passport Issuing Office (PIO) for DEFRA, and is the UK National Office for the Spanish Studbook – ANCCE-LGPRE, Sevilla, Spain. The BAPSH Ltd also looks after the requirements of other horses imported from Spain who clearly have Purebred Spanish Horse ancestry judging by their conformation and characteristics.
These horses are entered into Register IV which is for Riding Horses and is not a Breeding Register.
The PIO for Imported Andalusians, horses of PRE-Type NOT Registered with ANCCE-LGPRE,or PRE/Andalusian-Type Partbreds is the BAPSH Ltd who can register, update and certify passports from all the Spanish Regional Government PIOs,eg. Murcia, Andalucia, Gallicia, Catalunia etc.
Transfer of Ownership is included in the registration process and an Invoice, Receipt, or Contract of Sale should be provided to show that it is a legal sale.
BAPSH will also need a copy of the Intra-Trade travel documents that accompanied your horse to the UK

4.Your equine vet must visit to perform a detailed and thorough identification of the horse, from the horse itself, so that BAPSH Ltd can confirm the horse’s identity. This detailed identification may be used to update the existing passport, or to create your horse’s new passport if this has been requested.
5a. The first action of your vet must be to scan the horse’s neck with thoroughness to detect if there is a microchip in place. (If your horse has a modern passport it must have had a microchip inserted when it was passported but sometimes these become inactive.) If a microchip is located then this number is written on to the ID page of our application form. If your horse does NOT have an active microchip, your vet must provide and insert a microchip into the left side mid-third of the neck, just below the crest. The Microchip sticker must be put on the Application form and the spare Microchip stickers enclosed with the Registration Application form on its return to the Registry Office.
5b. Then your vet must carefully draw ALL the whorls, scars, and markings onto the Identity Diagram and complete the written section on page 2 of the Application form – clearly PRINTING his own name and practice address, plus date and signature, and endorse it with the Vet Practice Stamp.
