Important Biosecurity Information

Biosecurity at the British Breeding Equine Bridge 2019

At all our events, the safety of all participating horses and ponies is extremely important to us. In view of the current outbreak of Equine Influenza, we are working with our veterinary advisors to minimise the risk of infection:

Obligatory Equine Influenza Vaccinations

Please note that up-to-date influenza vaccinations are an obligatory condition of entry for any British Breeding event. Passports will be checked on arrival and must be shown before unloading.

In the current conditions, vaccinations must be boosted every 6 months to provide increased protection. This means that you need to have you horse or pony vaccinated within 6 months prior to entry. The most recent booster must have been given earlier than 7 days before the event date.

Please do not leave it until the final weeks before the event, as you need to give your youngster time to recover from the vaccination.  If you are starting a new course of vaccinations, your horse or pony needs to have had their first 2 vaccinations (a minimum of 3 weeks apart) and the second must be at least 1 week before the date of the Futurity evaluation you are attending.

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact our team at any time, we will be happy to advise.
