Always ensure that you are satisfied that the horse described in the passport is the one that you intend to buy – check the silhouette against the horse and that the horse is identified by microchip.
Unless you have access to a microchip scanner you may need to employ a vet to check the identity of the horse. It is always advisable to have a horse vetted before you buy it. It is your responsibility to advise the ACE Group Inc. of the change of ownership, not the sellers. You should always see the passport before you purchase and the seller is required to hand it to you at the completion of the transaction.
After the purchase you must send the passport to the ACE Group Inc. to record the change of ownership.
