National Equine Database (NED Online) to close

National Equine Database (NED Online) to close

Following the completion of a competitive tender exercise, Defra have decided not to award a new contract for the provision of a central equine database service beyond 30 September 2012. The current National Equine Database will therefore close at the conclusion of its current contract on 30 September 2012.

Therefore, this NED website cannot continue to operate beyond the end of September and all NED Services including horse search, lost and stolen register, horse associations, pedigree, progeny and performance reports, passport check, NEDLinks and equine reminders will no longer be available.
