The Equine Infectious Diseases Action Group (EIDAG) has recommended that the EHV-1 risk level is dropping to a low/normal level, but as an endemic disease the risk it poses to the UK equine population is continuous.

At short notice, British Equestrian introduced an equine health self-certification. This process was mandated for all British Dressage, British Eventing and British Showjumping competitions before the 12th of April 2021 and has successfully helped to reduce the spread of this disease. While the mandate to use these forms has now ended, British Equestrian and the EIDAG are recommending that a revised version of the form be introduced as an ongoing biosecurity measure to protect our equines and mitigate the risk of spreading infectious conditions.
