Health Protocols

Everything you need to know...

Peden Bloodstock will always ensure that the most up to date health protocol is determined and confirmed by the receiving country prior to preparing your horse for travel.

We will personally liaise with yourself and your veterinarian regarding the specific shipping requirements.

1. Movement within the EU

Intra-EU

We will organise everything that you will need to transport your horse around Europe including rucking or internal charter flights for your horses; Ferry and Eurotunnel Bookings;Government issued health papers; Veterinary inspections; Stabling and Horse Society Registration Liaison.

Horses travelling between EU Member States, Switzerland and Norway

An official ministry veterinarian must inspect the equidae within 48 hours of export and consignments must be accompanied by a valid TRACES document known as an ITAHC (Intra-Trade Animal Health Certificate) which is signed by the Official Veterinarian of the country of origin and valid for 10 days.
