 How do I register a horse?

Registering a horse with EQ enables the owner to accquire a valid competition licence, allowing that horse to participate in above the line activities. The registration is a means of identifying the horse and establishing ownership of the horse for competition purposes only. Before you submit a registration application for your horse, please ensure that the following information is complete. Incomplete or incorrect work will be returned.

  • All owners must be current Competitor, Participant, Supporter or Commercial members of Equestrian Queensland.
  • The horse must be Microchipped to Australian Standard.
  • Horse names must be unique. You cannot use the same name as another horse, nor can you change the spelling slightly or use a variation of the same name. You can check to see if the name is taken by searching the EA Database.
  • You must supply 5 name preferences.
  • Prefix Initials are not permitted, neither are numbers, punctuation marks or special characters.
  • The name must not exceed 28 characters includings spaces.
  • If a horse has been registered with another recognized breed society, it may be EA registered using that name.  This rule also applies to horses being imported into Australia. To use the name, you must supply a copy of the certificate.
  • Any horse which was not born in Australia may be subject to additional grading points. Please consult the discipline specific rule book for more details.
  • Horses competing in 'above the line' Dressage classes, must purchase Qld Dressage Bridle Numbers. They can be purchased at the time of Life Registration or you can sign in to your MyEA profile and purchase them at a later date.

How do I transfer a horse into my name?

If you have purchased a horse that is already registered, you must transfer the horse into your name. To transfer a horse into your name you must be a current financial member of EQ. Before you submit a transfer application for your horse, please ensure that the paperwork is complete as incomplete or incorrect forms will be returned.

If you transfer from another state to Queensland your horses will automatically be transferred with you however, you will need to request Queensland competition licences and bridle number (if applicable) for the horses you are currently competing ‘above the line’.

To transfer the horse into your name you must submit either the ORIGINAL certificate of registration, signed by both the previous and new owner to the EQ office with payment OR submit a completed transfer of ownership form.

How do I lease a horse?

There are certain EA Disciplines and Classes that require the rider (if they are not the listed EA Owner of the horse), to have an official Lease Notification in place to be able to compete. Please refer to the specific Rules of the Sport to see if this applies to you.

The Lease Notification Form must be signed by lessee and lessor and submitted with the horse's original Registration Certificate. The Lease Notification Form must indicate a start date and end date of the lease period. For competition purposes, the lease is effective the date that the form (with required signatures) is received in the EQ office. EQ must have written confirmation by both parties if a lease is extended or if the lease is terminated prior to the expiration date. 

It is a requirement that both the Owner and Lessee of the horse are current financial members of EA. And that the Owner, remains a current EA member for the period of the Lease, to allow the Lessee to compete the horse in competitive classes.
