Membership Options

Please note that if you renew your membership part way through the year  it will expire on 31st December.


On 1 October this year it will become Law that all horses must be microchipped.

Many horses born before 2009 may not yet have a microchip. 

The Arab Horse Society is able to supply the AHS dedicated microchips to all owners of Arabian, Anglo Arab and Part Bred Arab registered horses for £8.00 which includes postage.

Please contact the office on 01672 521411 Option 1 to request a microchip and pay for it. 

You will be sent a form which your vet will need to complete and which should be returned to the office at the address below after he/she has implanted the microchip


  • If the passport for your horse was issued prior to 2014, it will need to be updated with additional pages to comply with EU Regulations (this will be done for the cost of return postage) so please return it with the completed microchipping form. 


  • If the markings or colour of your horse have changed prior to its being microchipped, or if the horse has been gelded, please ask your vet to update the passport, then send it and the Registration Certificate for the horse to the Arab Horse Society office.

**The Arab Horse Society dedicated equine microchip is logged automatically for the life of the horse onto the ANIBASE and Arab Horse Society Databases.   The Arab Horse Society staff will upload the microchip number to the Central Equine Database as is required by law on return of the paperwork to the office.**

The Arab Horse Society Summer News has now been posted and sent to members.  The Editorial Team would like to thank everyone who supported the News by taking an advertisement.  We fully appreciate the difficult times everyone is experiencing because of the COVID-19 pandemic and we are so grateful for the support given by you, the members, to this issue.  Also, I, as Editor, would like to thank everyone who sent in news of their horses at a time when the equestrian world is mainly shut down.  It was lovely to hear from members what they have been able to do, and of course, to hear about foals born in 2020.

We will be planning the Yearbook from September onwards so do get in touch if you would like to be involved in this publication.

Many thanks again and have a happy summer."

Thank you to all the breeders who have already sent in their 30 day Notifications of Birth.  We are very grateful.    By now most will have received an email asking you to urgently send in your Covering Certificate/Naming Form plus payment as we are starting to send out the Markings Forms/DNA kits & Microchips to you all.   Please keep sending 30 Day Notifications of Birth to Karin Swanson, (who is in the office one day a week),  by email to: registrar Whilst the year has been difficult for everyone, the AHS are still expected to fulfil DEFRA requirements on registration of foals so any head start we achieve will be a great help.  THANK YOU AGAIN.  


TO: All Arab Horse Society Breeders -  for your 2020 foal. 

In view of the closure of the Arab Horse Society Offices, we would ask those members whose mares have foaled this year to notify Karin Swanson of the birth by email to:  within 30 days of foaling, of the Colour, Sex, Date of Birth, Sire, Dam and Owner/Lessee of mare at time of foaling

This will mean that we can start the pending registration as Karin Swanson is able to log in from home to receive emails so will be able to prepare for when we are up and running again to help prevent delays. 

 DO NOT SEND your Covering Certificate/Naming Form or any money yet., we will notify you when to do so.   For foals born January and February and March,  please notify us as soon as possible and within a month from the date of this  Notice. 

The breeders who inform the office of any foaling within 30 days of the birth may deduct £10 from the Registration Fee when it is time to send the paperwork to the office.  Please complete the following to send.
