Re: [RC] Ringers at NC - Maureen A. Fager
Here is a quote from the Austrian Endurance Rider Associations (AERA)
website, it if from their "Rules and Regulations for Endurance Riding in
Australia, current January 2002"
"H.6. ENDURANCE HORSE AND ENDURANCE HORSE LOGBOOK
6.1. A horse that has complied with the NOVICE HORSE AND THE NOVICE HORSE
LOGBOOK (H.5) rule will be eligible to apply for an Endurance Horse Logbook.
The Novice Horse Logbook(s) must be presented to substantiate compliance
with rule H.5.
6.2. Every horse issued with an Endurance Horse Logbook must be identified
a) a microchip implant plus certified veterinary identification of same -
the details of which will be recorded in the Endurance Horse Logbook for
that horse. The microchip must be inserted more than 6 days prior to that
horse competing in an affiliated endurance ride; or
b) a certified veterinary identification which must include a registered
brand, the details of which will be recorded in the Endurance Horse Logbook
for that horse.
6.3. A microchipped horse must have the certified identification completed
in case of microchip reader or microchip failure."
I find this interesting, and wonder as to the "why" of the microchip and
identification became neccasary.
