As a club we do everything we can to ensure that the risk to member's horses is at an absolute minimum.
We have recently started arranging our lesson times in blocks, so only those from the same yard are together for example.
We would like to ask that when attending events, members are very careful in relation to horses from different yards mixing, use of buckets, tack etc.
We have therefore attached a guide from the Animal Health Trust which might be of interest (or even give you more information).
Although these guidelines are mainly aimed at those attending 'stay away' events, there is an interesting section on 'Actions to be taken when attending an event'. We know everyone is careful and you're probably all well aware of how to minimise risk, but to be honest, we can never be too careful.....
