Ask Horsicar : Are there difficulties to transport a horse when the horse's medical files are not up to date?

Hi Marian 😊,

Many thanks for your question. In France (not sure about other countries🤭) you need to carry your horse identification documents when travelling. There is no restriction regarding your horse's medical files except that compulsory vaccination have to be up-to-date (but this is general information and not really specific to transport).

However, if you transport a horse in order to compete, it is very important to make sure that all medical files are up-to-date as your horse will be in contact with other ones.

Hope this answers your question.

Have a nice day,

Anne-Sophie from Horsicar 🦄
