Equine Flu  Latest
With cases of equine influenza continuing to be reported, Members are reminded that it is essential to have their horse’s flu vaccinations up to date before attending any Pony Club activity. If a horse has not been vaccinated appropriately, it may not attend a Pony Club event to protect the health of the other Members’ horses and those of the hosting venue. 

The seven-day clearance period, between having the vaccination and attending an event, continues to apply (see point 7 of the vaccination rule on page 30-31 of the Health and Safety rulebook).

If it has been more than six months since your horse has been vaccinated, then the British Equestrian Federation recommendation is to consult your vet. Find out more by clicking below:

Please check Main Pony Club Web site for latest details on  Equine Flu and requirements
