British Equestrian puts equine health first with dedicated awareness week

As part of  British Equestrian’s  commitment to promote the highest standards in welfare, British Equestrian is excited to launch a new initiative in Equine Health Week. Running from 28 November to 4 December 2023, the week will feature educational content across our social media channels from leading veterinary surgeons, many of which sit on British Equestrian’s Equine Infectious Diseases Advisory Group (EIDAG). The week is aimed at everyone who interacts with equines – whether you ride occasionally at a centre, have your own horse or run a bustling yard, everyone has a part to play in the health, wellbeing and welfare of our partners.

Based around the theme of ‘reducing disease risk together’, there’s a packed seven-day programme of daily social media posts. They will be featuring a ‘disease of the day’, where some of our common – and not-so-common – conditions will be put in the spotlight. There will also be top tips to promote good health management and biosecurity at home and when out competing, and vet talks covering the principles of vaccination, the fight against disease and protection against parasites.
