Defra reminder re Transporter Authorisations

Defra have been in contact with British Equestrian with a reminder about the need to renew transporter authorisations because a significant number are due for renewal in 2022 (authorisations must be renewed every five years). They’ve asked if British Equestrian and the member bodies can do our part to share this information with the equestrian industry. Transporter authorisations apply to, amongst others, those who move horses within Great Britain in connection with professional riding, livery and stabling. They also apply to those moving horses for the purposes of animal rescue and/or charities.

There are two types of transporter authorisation – Type 1 (short journey), which are required for journeys over 65km and up to 8 hours in duration, and Type 2 (long journey), which are required for those transporting animals for journeys over 8 hours.

The Defra news item on this is available here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/animal-transporters-reminder-to-renew-your-transporter-authorisation
