29th March 2019 – Latest BEF Update on Equine Flu

Vaccinations for stabling at Racecourses

The Pony Club is following BEF guidance with regards to vaccinations. The current vaccination rule is attached for your reference and the BEF guidance can be found here: https://www.bef.co.uk/News-Detail.aspx?news=equine-flu-latest

Pony Racing have a slightly tighter rule for vaccinations because they have to comply with BHA rules. 

Any horse / pony attending racecourses, whether competing / taking part or companion ponies, must have 6 monthly vaccination boosters and a clear 7 days between the vaccination being administered and attending the racecourse.

Some venues have stricter rules for events held on their premises that align with BHA rules and others do not. In cases where venues’ vaccination policy is stricter than Pony Club’s rule, the venue’s vaccination policy should be followed. It is the responsibility of the organiser to ensure they comply accordingly.

 

IMPORTANT Open Dressage 2019 Test – Rule Book version

It has come to light that the above test is incorrect in the Dressage Rule Book. All other versions on www.pcuk.org and through Harry Hall are correct, it is only the Rule Book that has the error. Please find the correct test attached.

IMPORTANT: Show Jumping Rule book update:

Unfortunately, rule 3(b) has been omitted from the 2019 Showjumping rule book. This rule was carried over from 2018 and is still current and it should be enforced. It reads as follows:

“3(b) Hair: In the interests of safety, long hair must be secured appropriately in a hairnet.”
