1st March - BEF Update on Equine Flu
Friday 01 March 2019
Throughout the current equine flu outbreak, the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) has continued to urge equine owners to ensure that their vaccination records are up to date.
The BEF has also strongly recommended that all competition and event organisers check the equine ID passports of all horses to ensure that they comply with vaccination rules.
This is based on advice from experts in equine influenza and epidemiology with experience of managing previous outbreaks.
The BEF reminds organisers that, during the current outbreak, it is vital that unvaccinated horses do not mix with other horses because of the increased risk of such an infectious disease spreading. It is important that organisers and owners recognise that equine welfare is a priority and take steps to prevent the further spread of equine flu.
There is more guidance available on the BEF website and in our Q&A.
