With very few exceptions horses at or on their way to Appleby must be accompanied by their passport, and new rules introduced from 1 July 2009 mean that all horses born after that date must have a passport and microchip by 31 December in the year in which they are born or 6 months after birth, whichever is the latest.

The Pet Animals Act 1951, as amended in 1983, prohibits the sale of pets in a public place such as a market. The activity of selling animals as pets from a market or public place is therefore illegal.
