Alberta Horse Industry

Horse owners can protect their animals in the case of an emergency or a disease outbreak with Premises Identification Program (PID). As of January 1, 2009 premises identification became law as part of the Animal Health Act. If you have horses (or any of the other "Recordable Animals" as defined by the act), you must register your premises. If you become an owner of a recordable animal you must apply for a PID account and ID number within 30 days of assuming ownership of the animal, even if you board on another person's property.

  • Premises Identification Program (PID)
  • Equine Information Document (EID)
  • National ID Program
  • Transportation of horses

This past winter, Albertans have seen snow storm after snow storm hit.  In some places, snow drifts are as high as fence lines.  With all this snow, spring promises to be messy when the ground starts thawing and the snow starts melting.  Mud can cause problems for horse owners.  It affects pastures and can cause health issues or diseases in horses.
