Placement of microchips is becoming more common among horse owners to provide a permanent source of identification and proof of ownership. Any horse obtaining an FEI passport is also required to have a microchip placed. Placement of a microchip is a quick procedure that can be performed painlessly with the placement of a local anesthetic.

If you are not sure if your horse has a microchip, we can easily check for you, prior to placement. Contact us for more information.
