BEF Advice for Competition and Training Event Organisers - update

    8 Mar 2019   

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) continues to strongly recommend to competition and event organisers that they check the Equine ID Passports of all attending horses to make sure that they comply with vaccination rules.

The BEF reminds organisers that it is vital that unvaccinated horses do not mix with other equines due to the increased risk of such an infectious disease spreading. There are also potentially serious consequences for unvaccinated horses, especially youngstock, if they contract the disease.

The BEF appreciates how hard responsible organisers and owners are working to prevent the spread of equine flu. For those who would like further information, there is a Q&A on the BEF website and Your Horse magazine has produced a simple guide to the symptoms of equine flu and the steps you can take.

If you believe your horse is showing signs of the symptoms of equine flu, the BEF continues to urge you to seek the advice of your veterinary surgeon.

The BEF welcomes the fact that the majority of showing societies are mandating our recommendations at their larger shows and advising their regional shows to follow local veterinary risk assessments.

BEF guidelines are based on advice from global experts in EI and epidemiology with experience of managing previous outbreaks.
