Some info about transporting horses in NSW -
Whilst these aren't new regulations, NSW Police launched Operation Stock Check on 3 August 2020 resulting in more monitoring of people trucking horses and other livestock around NSW. Be prepared, you are likely to be pulled over and asked by the NSW Police for a TSS for the horse you may be moving. If you do not have a TSS with you or your horse does not meet any of the exemptions, you may be fined.
Common horse movements which require a TSS include (but are not limited to) when a horse is moved: • to a farrier to be shod • to a new grazing block • for recreational rides outside of an organised event or exempt activity • for breeding purposes for non-thoroughbreds or non-Standardbreds • to a riding school for a riding lesson, or • to a trail ride.
From our reading of the information you do not need a TSS to attend a Hoofbeats rally day/event.
More info below.
FAQ can be accessed on the Local Land Services website here
The horse only TSS is available on the Local Land Services website here
If you are claiming one of the exemptions, you are advised that proof is required that the journey falls under one of the exemptions – e.g. a veterinary appointment booking, registration at a gymkhana or proof that the horse is a racehorse.
Generally, if you are in doubt about whether you fall under one of the exemptions for transporting horses, it is recommended that the horse(s) travel with a completed TSS.
