How to add a Horse on the FEI Database

If you need to register or enter a Horse to compete in a FEI event, the Horse must first have a FEI ID number on the FEI Database.


Step 1: You must go to and log in with your FEI ID number and password


Step 2: You must then go to the HORSES tab and click on ADD HORSE


Step 3: Here you must enter all the necessary information about the Horse you are wishing to enter on the FEI Database

You must:

- enter the BIRTH NAME and the CURRENT NAME

  • if these are different, you must choose a "kind of name" from the drop-down list on the right-hand side

- enter the date of birth

- enter the gender

- enter National ID

- enter the UELN

- enter the Chip ID

Please note: It is the National Federation’s responsibility to verify that the information they enter is correct.


Step 4: You then click on ADD – the system will check that this Horse does not already exist on the FEI Database and will inform you if they find any similar matches.


Step 5: You are then directed to the second stage where you must fill out extra information regarding the Horse and its passport details.

 You can upgrade to a FEI Recognition Card or FEI Passport directly on this page, or once the Horse is created.

 You must also add a New Ownership before you can save and create the horse.
