EQUINE FLU
TREC GB REQUIREMENT
(25th February 2019 6pm)

With immediate effect TREC GB requires that all events involving equines should insist that vaccinations are up to date (12 month cycle) and check passports before horses are unloaded. Horses that have had their annual vaccination or a booster, within the last six days should not be allowed to compete.

We also ask that riders donít attend events if their horse, or other horses stabled at the same location, are showing any flu symptoms.

TREC GB will monitor the current situation and issue updates as and when necessary. Longer term implications will be considered in due course.

Additionally, TREC GB suggests that in preparation for the coming Summer Series season, all riders should check their horses are vaccinated in anticipation of this becoming a future, long term requirement.

For unvaccinated horses to be able to compete a new programme takes a minimum of 28 days.
