Microchipping: How To...

This page contains information for owners and breeders who are registering their Thoroughbred and need to implant and report the microchip to The Jockey Club and the Canadian Thoroughbred Horse Society (CTHS).
Owners and breeders may have their horses microchipped either in the "nasal area" or the neck (nuchal ligament). The location must be reported. The CTHS is only recommending the "nasal area"; information on the "nasal area" implant location may be found within the Microchipping Section of the website.
