It’s quite frightening what can go wrong if a loose horse leaves an event grounds, your own property or an agistment paddock. The escape of the
Household Calvary horses onto the roads causing vehicle accidents and human trauma, happened just last week in the UK. Check out your insurance policy to see if it covers just this type of scenario. If loose horses are found and held a state or local government authority, the Impounding Act 1920 may be utilised, including recouping fees and charges from horse owners.

633 shares on Facebook of the Clare Valley Veterinary Services post reporting of recent ‘Strangles’ outbreaks in the Clare Valley, has raised significant awareness in horse owners about this endemic animal disease. Dr Nic de Brauwere (UK) will be covering the management of strangles outbreaks as one of the several topics in ‘Talking Horses’ at Roseworthy on November 29th.  

Luke Jones will kick off Horse SA’s education and information sharing stream relating to public or private horse facilities. It’s not only aimed at new builds but even minor upgrades in order to keep the venue in safe working order. Topics covered include The Masterplanning process, addressing local authority requirements and equestrian centre design principles. Clubs, why not sponsor a volunteer to attend?
