Change in Vaccination Requirements for the remainder of the 2020 Season

Equine flu vaccination requirements temporarily relaxed

Following the BHA’s decision yesterday to relax the equine influenza protocols due to COVID-19, the PRA Board has agreed that during the remainder of 2020, for a pony to be eligible to compete in pony races, it will be necessary to have received an approved equine influenza vaccination within the last 12 months, instead of the existing six month requirement. The 12-month approach reflects the policy that was in place in Britain prior to 2019.

We do not know when we will be able to start pony racing but we hope this will be one less thing to worry about over the coming months.
