Did you know that since February 1 2018 (less than 60 days), there have been 45 reports of Equine herpes myelitis, 4 reports of strangles in the US. Both of these diseases are entirely preventable, and are spread rapidly through horse shows, stables, and racetracks: wherever horses mix. Develop a plan for your facility or event with these free online workshops provided by Equestrian Canada Equestre.
Workshops are 1.5 hours in length. Participants should have a high-speed internet connection, headphones, and a computer. Horse event operators/facility managers/horse owners will participate actively in developing a biosecurity plan for their event or farm, coming away with a draft plan after the workshop. Biosecurity plan (disease prevention plans) are a crucial part of operating a profitable, well-respected facility or event.
