Have your horse chipped! This will help locate your horse if lost, stolen, or gets loose in a hurricane/natural disaster. Emergency Personal, vets, animal shelters and other pet professionals can scan your horse to determine identity/ownership and contact you. This is proof of ownership for competitions and insurance claims as well. This is a great way to keep track of your horse, for rescues to keep track of fosters and horses that are adopted out. Cost will be $60 per horse. Contact us to reserve your spot, we will have 25 chips total and the cost of placing the chip is included.

This is a non refundable fee- we will only have 25 chips available
