I don't know anything about this site, a friend actaully posted it on facebook and I was curious to see if anyone in the states heard of it.
I asked NetPosse about it. Here is what they said.

Stolen Horse International, Inc. Aka NetPosse.com
This organization has been around for years. They were the first I recall that did a "no kill" universal brand. I haven't heard much about or from them in while, but that doesn't mean anything negative about them. I haven't heard of the EquiSafe chip. I'd have to ask Debi or research to find out more. The biggest thing we've found is that most orgs selling chips don't have the access to or availability to the public of their chip database should a horse become missing or stolen. As for the brand ... each State has requirements before you can apply a brand to a horse. I don't know how it can be registered in your name if someone else in the state has already done so. Maybe they explain that on the site (?) ... Those are just my thoughts. I'm not sure what info you might be looking for. ~ Angela

Joe-Deludign? Yikes. Sounds intense.

It's true that a "Mexican Slaughter House" may not care... But it's not like horses just magically land in their hands. There is a process before they get there--perhaps someone who owns them first will care enough to check.

I like microchips as a good way to track stolen horses and prevent them from being sold at auction or slaughtered. I wouldn't consider brands to be very effective, since they can be altered and as far as I'm concerned really don't mean anything anyway.

But, if it were required for auction & slaughter houses (and border crossings) to scan for a microchip and compare against a list of reported stolen horses (and even keeping a record of microchip numbers that pass through to help trace horses not reported early enough), there'd be a much greater chance of keeping horses out of those places that shouldn't be there. There are several different types of chips (4 in the US, according to Wikipedia) but there are also devices that can scan for all of those types at once. It wouldn't be that hard to implement.

Microchips in horses are the same as microchips in dogs. Only good if the person/rescue/auction/seller/humane society/slaughterhouse, etc or whom ever has the horse/dog has a scanner to read the chip.
I don't imagine many places will have a scanner to read the chip or take the time to check a horse. Many many rescues, humane societies, etc don't check dogs for chips, I don't believe the majority will even think to check horses. Plus, if the chip is not registered by the owner originally who puts the chip in, there will be no paper trail to contact anyway.
