Posted on 14th April 2020
As of April 2020, we are following British Horseracing Authority (BHA) Equine Influenza Vaccination ruling. During the remainder of 2020, for a horse or pony to be eligible to compete/travel in Britain it will be necessary to have received an approved equine influenza vaccination within the last 12 months, instead of the existing 6-month requirement, due to the coronavirus outbreak. The 12-month approach reflects the policy that was in place in Britain prior to 2019.
Therefore, horses and ponies that enter our site for shows, clinics, training days and competitions must have Equine Influenza vaccinations that comply with the 12-month ruling. Show organisers will check ALL passports on arrival and the venue will also carry out passport checks where necessary. Please have your passport ready to present to show secretaries at entries and when asked to be seen by a member of National Horseracing College staff.
