BRITISH EVENTING REINTRODUCING EHV EQUINE HEALTH SELF CERTIFICATION FOR EVENTS

British Eventing have made the decision, based on equine welfare best practice, to reintroduce the Equine Self Certification form requirement.  This will mean that with immediate effect all entries will require that a completed form be submitted prior to arrival at the events.

EHV

With the new FEI rulings in place this year at international competitions and the introduction of the FEI Horse App it is important that both national and international horses arriving at the same competition venue have had the same health declaration/checks prior to arrival.  As before it is a simple form that needs to be completed prior to printing out your number and arrival at the venue.

The self-certfication process will require a health declaration to be submitted to the event organiser 24 hours before arrival and can be completed by either the groom or rider.

Helen West, Chief Executive for British Eventing said, “Whilst it is only an official requirement for international competitions where national classes may, or may not, be included within the schedule we felt it was best practice in the interests of equine welfare that we made it a standard requirement for the season ahead across all events within our calendar.  It only takes one horse to be at an event for there to be an outbreak and we feel it is important to ensure we do all we can to minimise the risk.  EventingScores will have a link to the form which is easily completed online when you download your number for printing.  I would like to thank all of our members for working with us to ensure the highest level of bio-security and protecting the health of our competition horses.”
