Equine Influenza Vaccinations

Following consultation with our veterinary advisors and equestrian governing bodies, Blair Castle Horse Trials has made the decision that it will be mandatory for all horses and ponies entering the venue to be vaccinated against equine influenza, according to standard British Horseracing Association guidelines, with the last vaccination having been administered no more than 365 days prior to entry to the venue. All animals must have completed the primary course of two vaccinations. The last vaccination must have been administered at least 7 days before entering the venue.

Horses competing under FEI rules or British Eventing rules must abide by the vaccination rules of that Governing Body.

Foals under six months of age will be exempt from the vaccination requirement.

Random passport checks will be implemented to verify vaccination status. Any animal without a valid vaccination protocol or if the owner/rider is unable to produce a valid passport, there will be immediate eviction of that animal from the venue. In this case, no refunds will be issued in respect of entries or stabling.

All horses and ponies competing at Blair Castle must be vaccinated against Equine Influenza.
