EHV-1 Update from The Pony Club

The Pony Club has had a number of general enquiries regarding EHV-1.

We are aware of the recent case reported to British Dressage. BD were notified of a further case of EHV-1 in a dressage yard in Aberdeen on 22/03. There appears to be no clear link with the cases in Gloucestershire.

We urge members to help protect the wider equestrian community by not travelling any horses showing signs of ill health. It is also strongly recommended that anyone who has hunted, or may have come in to contact with anyone that has hunted, with the Heythrop, the Beaufort or the Berkeley since 6th March 2013 DO NOT travel their horses.

In all cases The Pony Club advises its Members to follow the best practise guidance [see links on the Downloads page].

The health and wellbeing of horses is always the first priority and we consider that we have taken appropriate advice and that we are taking all reasonable steps to reduce any risk. Members are requested to act responsibly, consider others and if further guidance is needed we suggest contacting their own vets.

We will continue to monitor the situation, and if it changes a notification will be placed on
