New Pony Club Rules for Vaccinations

Are you thinking about attending or competing in a Pony Club event this year ? If so, be aware that there has been an amendment to the Pony Club Rule Book 2018 which says that all horses and ponies attending or competing at a Pony Club event MUST  be fully inoculated for Equine Influenza by the following protocol:

  • 1st vaccination – Day 0
  • 2nd vaccination – 21-92 days after first vaccination
  • 3rd vaccination 150-215 days after second vaccination
  • Annual booster vaccination within 365 days of 3rd vaccination.

It pays to make a note of the dates of your vaccinations somewhere you regularly look at – your phone or a calendar or diary and set yourself alerts as these dates creep round super-quick and you will find yourself back to square one if you miss the window for the vaccination – and not able to compete if you get spot-checked!
