You can exclude your equine from the food chain at any point. Often, owners do not wish to think of their equines being eaten by people, and you can exclude your equine for any reason. However, once you have excluded your equine, it can never go back in.

To exclude an equine, you need to update the passport and notify the relevant Passport Issuing Organisation that your equine is excluded. The PIO will then update the Central Equine Database.

Who do I have to notify to rule my horse out of the food chain?
