Respiratory Health

  • Last reviewed: 12th August 2022

The horse evolved in a natural environment of open pasture with limitless fresh air. In modern day management, when horses are removed from open pasture into more confined environments their respiratory health may become compromised which, over time, can affect the wellbeing and performance of the horse. 

To find out more information about clinical signs of respiratory disease and what preventative measures you can take to decrease the risks, please download our leaflet on Horse Respiratory Health (pdf) or contact the BHS Welfare team on 02476 840517 or email welfare@bhs.org.uk to request a copy.
