Licences and permits directory - Hiring out horses

If you or your business hire out horses, you will require an animal licence.

The licence runs for one to three years from the date of issue.

You will receive a one to five-star rating on your licence, with a five-star rating the highest possible. The rating will be an accurate reflection of the level of risk of your business and the animal welfare standards you adopt.

To apply, change or renew the licence, you must comply with the licence conditions and guidance.
