Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Hi, I need to move my horse from east london to PE, and then from PE to Cape Town on a float with the race horses. Is that movement permitted at the moment? Or does the racing industry have its own rules concerning the movment of their horses. My horse has been vaccinated and is a healthy 3 year old colt?

Thank you for your enquiry regarding the movement of horses into the AHS Controlled Area.

To answer your last question first, all horses are bound by the movement controls put in place by the SA Veterinary Services, racehorses included.

In order to start the process, please contact your private veterinarian to apply for the movement certificate from the local State Vet office in your area.
