Equine Canada is urging horse owners to use its online passport application process, saying the system is quick and easy to use, and saves money, too.
Applying online will give riders a proof of purchase which can be used for up to 21 days as an interim passport.
For example, if a rider gets a new horse and wants to compete the following week, making an online application means an interim passport can be issued immediately.
The interim passport can be used until the passport is received in the mail.
Passports can still be applied for by downloading the appropriate forms and sending the application by mail.
