Specific Requirements Horses & Other Equines

As from 1st May 2012, any premises (which includes shows, fairs and markets) where horses or other equines are gathered must be registered with the Department of Agriculture.  Owners/persons in charge of such gatherings are required to submit a completed application form for registration and to keep records of movements on/off their premises. Records must be retained for at least 3 years as they may be required by the Department for the purposes of tracing disease.  It is important therefore that Show organisers should contact their local Regional Veterinary Office in advance so that consideration can be given to compliance with the requirements.

Any further information on the requirements for moving of horses and equines to shows will be provided on the Department’s website www.agriculture.gov.ie/animalhealthwelfare/animalidentificationmovement

** Please note ** All prize monies will be paid out in the following two weeks after the Kingdom County Fair and NOT on the day of the Fair.
