Biosecurity

It can be difficult to keep your horse safe when mixing with lots of other horses at events. Here are some tips on maintaining good biosecurity at a show:

 
??Take all your own equipment
??Avoid letting your horse drink from communal troughs and/or avoid using water from them
??Prevent contact with other horses
??Tie your horse to your own transport
??Don’t allow your horse to graze around communal areas
??Clean and disinfect your boots and clothing after the show
??Disinfect everything after the event, including your horse transport
??Monitor your horse after the event for signs of ill health
??Ensure your horse is vaccinated and up to date for at least Influenza and possibly also Herpes too. Ask your vet for further advice
If your horse is showing any signs of illness, do not go!
