FAQ: Pony Minimum Value
In order to reduce the indiscriminate selling of ponies abroad, possibly for the meat market, legislation has been introduced to ensure that all ponies 14.2 hands and under are accompanied by proof of minimum value. This is to ensure that that the pony is being legitimately exported and not being exploited in any way.
To comply with this legislation, when exporting a pony of 14.2 or under, they must have either a receipt of, or a current insurance certificate, or an invitation to compete, or a certificate of valuation. Any of these four documents are currently acceptable as proof of the minimum value of the pony.
