Logbooks and Registrations

For your horse - logbooks, registrations and ownership transfer.
Note: Our forms are now fillable PDF, you must use Adobe Reader to complete the forms if you wish to use this feature.  Please print and sign the completed forms and return to the Registrar.
If you are filling in the Logbook Application Form form by hand rather than using Adobe Reader, please ensure that you write your horse's name on each and every page in the space provided. Our registrar has previously received multiple logbook applications scanned together with no way of telling which page belongs to which horse.

Applying for a Logbook

Please download and read the application guide before filling out the form.  If you are applying for a novice (blue) logbook, you may complete the horse ID section yourself.  If you are upgrading to an open (yellow) logbook, your vet must complete the ID section.  If you have any questions, please contact our Registrar.

Upgrading Your Horse from Novice to Open

Once your horse has sucessfully completed 3 open rides, it is eligible to be upgraded to open status and will be issued with a yellow logbook. Open horses must also pay registration (Annual or Lifetime) in order to be eligible to compete in open rides. You can not upgrade your horse until a minimum of 90 days has elapsed from the date of the horses first successfully completed endurance ride.  Please refer to Rule 46.5 in our National Rulebook.  Your horse will also need to be microchipped.

In order to be upgraded, you will need to send the following to the Registrar:-
  • Novice (blue) logbook
  • Novice and Endurance Horse Application form (button below) with completed Vet ID. If the Vet ID is already inserted in the logbook, only send completed page 1 of the form.
  • Completed Annual/Lifetime Horse Registration Form (button below)
  • Payment of $30 for the upgrade, plus either $40 for annual registration or $80 for lifetime registration.  
  • Return express postage is included in the above fee.

Replacement Logbook

If a logbook has been lost, destroyed, or wilfully withheld by a horse's previous owner, you can apply for a replacement.  You will need to fill out a logbook application form, complete a statutory declaration, and pay the appropriate fee.
