Don’t Miss the National Equine Health Survey

Introduced in 2010 and now an annual fixture, it is a quick and easy online snapshot survey that is helping to discover more about common health issues in horses, directly from horse owners themselves. Everyone who takes part will have the chance to win some amazing prizes including Olympia tickets, Spillers feed vouchers, or one of six pairs of Ariat Mudbuster boots.

The NEHS data collected has revealed crucial information about common diseases such as skin problems, lameness, weight issues and colic. The results are shared across the sector to help establish benchmarks for equine health and disease in the UK and define priorities for future research, training and education. For example the high incidence (15.2%) of skin disease recorded to date suggests a need to raise awareness of skin disease management and prevention amongst the veterinary industry and owners.
