Property Identification Code (PIC)
Horse owners are reminded that any owners of land on which horses and other livestock are kept are required to obtain a Property Identification Code (PIC) from their local Livestock Health and Pest Authority (LHPA). The new traceability requirements are part of biosecurity efforts aimed at improving NSW’s capacity to respond to animal disease outbreaks.
Knowing where horses are located as well as contact details for the owner improves the State’s ability to effectively respond to future animal disease outbreaks or other emergencies such as Equine Influenza and the Hendra virus. The introduction of a PIC system for horse properties will also bring NSW into line with Queensland, Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory which already have this requirement.
Property and horse owners can apply for a PIC by contacting their local LHPA.
You and your horse must be registered with Equestrian Australia to compete in OFFICIAL dressage competitions. The horse must also have a bridle number which has to be displayed on both sides of the horse (bridle or saddlecloth). More information can be found HERE.
a) riders of horses may carry a whip up to 1.20m (120cm)
b) riders of ponies may carry a whip up to 1.00m (100cm)
c) the tassel is included when measuring a whip
