Raising of horses and other equines

To pursue this activity, an entry permit is required.

Equidae breeding encompasses the rearing and breeding of the domestic horse and donkey species and cross-breeds between the two.

The holder of the animal who is also its owner and the caretaker designated for the care of the animal is responsible for equidae breeding.

Prior to breeding equidae, a holder of an equine animal must register their agricultural holding and be entered into the Register of Holders of Farm Animals and ensure that all of their animals are suitably marked/chipped and entered into the Central Register of Equine Animals kept by the relevant competent authority.

A holder of an equine animal must ensure that the equine animal is properly identified and that an identification document (ID) accompanies it at all times.
