Passports and Equine Influenza: A reminder that any horse or pony attending a Pony Club activity
must be accompanied by their passport. The first and second Equine Flu vaccination injections must
have been given and, if needed, correct subsequent booster injections. The Pony Club/BEF’s rules
will apply (see below) and Passports will be spot checked to ensure all horses/ponies are up-to-date
with their annual vaccinations. Those not complying will be turned away. Please have your
pony/horse’s passport with you and be ready to show the immunisation schedule.
BEF/Pony Club rules: In the face of recent equine influenza outbreaks the British Equestrian
Federation (BEF) asks all event organisers or coordinators to:
1. Check equine ID passports of all horses attending your event
Ensure that the horse (or pony) has received two injections for primary vaccination against equine
influenza given no less than 21 days and no more than 92 days apart. Only these two injections need
to have been given before a horse/pony can attend. In addition, if sufficient time has elapsed a first
booster injection must be given no less than 150 days and no more than 215 days after the second
injection of the primary vaccination. Subsequently, booster injections must be given at intervals of
not more than six months apart. Any horse not complying with the vaccination rules should not be
unloaded nor any horses travelling with it and they will not be allowed to participate in any session.
2. We strongly advise Re vaccination PCUK are imposing a six month booster requirement on local veterinary advice, event attendees must be aware of this at when making entries and have enough time to comply – at least 7 days.
There is increased concern over the impact of Equine Herpes, EHV-1, in the UK. The recent outbreak
on the continent has so far claimed the lives of several horses. British Equestrian (the BEF, of which
The Pony Club is a Member Body) is requesting that all Member Bodies use a process of selfcertification whereby they declare their horses and ponies fit to attend the activity subject to the ongoing monitoring of the disease. Click HERE for further information.
We are asking Pony Club members & those attending the Pony Show to confirm with the organiser 24 hours it starts that their horse or pony shows no signs of:
• recent cough of unknown cause
• recent nasal discharge of unknown cause
• enlarged lymph notes
• fever (>38.5˚C)
• recent onset of neurological signs of unknown cause
In addition the horse or pony:
• is not under current investigation for EHV infection.
• has not been in contact with and is not kept on the same premises as a horse known to have
or be under investigation for EHV.
• has been resident in the UK for the last 28 days.
If the horse or pony shows any of these clinical signs on the day of the activity it must not travel nor
attend the training or competition
The Cotswold Country, which is wholely within the County of Gloucestershire and mainly on the Cotswold hills, stretches from Cheltenham in the West to Northleach in the East, and from Toddington in the North to Stroud in the South.
