EQUINE FLU - IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Entries for Showjumping and Horse classes are now open: www.midsomersetshow.org.uk

Please note the important information below on Equine Flu: 

Horses must have been vaccinated to comply with the requirements of the primary course (1st vaccination and then 2nd vaccination between 21 – 92 days later), followed by the first booster (150 – 215 days) and all subsequent boosters. Horses may compete having received the primary course and prior to the first booster, but not within 7 days of receiving a vaccine dose.

 

Horses must have been vaccinated within 6 months before the show but not less than 7 days of arriving at the show.

 

Foals

In-foal mares that have already had vaccinations of primary Equine Influenza course should be vaccinated 4-6 weeks before the foal is due to be born.

Foals should be vaccinated for Equine Influenza at 6 months to commence their primary course.

 

We urge all owners to adhere to strict biosecurity protocols at all times.

Vaccinations are subject to local risk assessments by the attending veterinarians.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT NEITHER VACCINATION CERTIFICATES NOR PASSPORTS SHOULD BE SENT TO THE SHOW OFFICE PRIOR TO THE EVENT.  HOWEVER, RANDOM CHECKS WILL BE CARRIED OUT ON THE SHOWGROUND DURING THE SHOW

 

If your horse is not vaccinated, please do NOT BRING YOUR HORSE OR PONY to the show.
