British Equestrian Federation responds to EHV-1 outbreak

    10 Jan 2020   

The British Equestrian Federation acknowledges the diagnosis of a case of Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) at an equestrian centre in Hampshire on 8 January 2020.


The Federation supports the actions of the centre, who have ceased all activity, including cancelling shows and hire bookings, until further notice. The Animal Health Trust has issued advice stating that all horses who have recently visited the centre are immediately isolated for a period of 14 days and that owners seek veterinary advice regarding clinical monitoring and laboratory test clearance.


EHV-1 is a contagious disease that can be spread through direct and indirect contact, with the virus surviving in the environment for several weeks. Clinical signs include a high temperature, coughing, nasal discharge, lethargy and loss of appetite. Severely affected animals can display neurological symptoms, and pregnant mares can also suddenly and unexpectantly miscarry their unborn foal.


The BEF recommends that owners remain vigilant for signs of the virus, maintain excellent biosecurity and consult with their vets if they are concerned.
