Heazle News



The latest action we have taken is either on the lessons page or the show page.

Equine Flu update.

Following the best veterinary advice, we will be open for shows and hire of facilities again from Monday 18th February with conditions as set out below.

At the moment no horse who has a correct record of injections and the last was within six months or a horse without a record of injections but has received an injection that was 7 days ago but not more than six weeks ago has contracted the flu.

We are taking this as our condition of entry to Heazle, we will be asking you to bring your passports with you and to show them at the secretarys office before unloading. This applies to shows and arena hire.

All horses at Heazle have received a booster jab and comply to the conditions above.

Many thanks in advance for your cooperation.
