When a horse is sold the owner must give the passport to the buyer at the time of the sale (sale includes any transfer of ownership, whether or not any money changes hands). In the case of auction sales, the passport must be given to the auctioneers, who must then give it to the buyer. The buyer must notify the ACE Group Inc. to register the new ownership, and include:
- the buyer’s name and address
- the identification of the horse
Note: it is advisable to thoroughly check a passport before purchasing a horse, and in particular check that the date of birth has not been altered.
