Horse Forms

Register a Horse 

There are two types of registration available for horses.

Full Horse ($163.53) – Lifetime registration of competitive horses permitting participation in equestrian competitive activities.

Base Horse ($42.20) – lifetime registration for horses not actively competing in competitive equestrian activities, for owners who would like horse registrations for the purpose of bio security or securing a name. 

Only current financial members are able to register horses and all horses must have a microchip number.

If you want to compete in "official" or "graded" competitions your horse will need full registration and a competition licence for that discipline. You must purchase multiple licences if you compete in multiple disciplines. Competition licences are renewed annually with your membership.

Horses must have Full registration to hold competition licences. If your horse is Base registered and you need to upgrade to Full registration the original Base registration certificate must be returned to the ESA office and the fee for Full registration paid and a new certificate will be issued for the horse. 

Registering a horse with Equestrian SA enables the owner to accquire a valid competition licence, allowing that horse to participate in above the line activities. The certificate of 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.

Registration for Interschool - (2021) Base Registration is acceptable for Interschool competitions including State Championships, UNLESS you are intending to compete at Nationals, then you would need a Full Horse Registration.
