Biosecurity is everybody’s business

22 April 2021


As a horse owner or someone who cares for horses and ponies – we are all part of the horse world. And we each have a role to play in preserving the health and welfare of not only our own equines but those around us too . One of our greatest collective health responsibilities is to combat the spread of disease. Currently our defences include: vaccination, monitoring, quarantine and taking preventative measures while moving horses and ponies around.

This webinar will look at the current equine disease threats and those that might be around the corner – and ALL the practical actions – both large and small – we can take to minimise these dangers.
