EHV Equine Health Self Certification process to be introduced at shows

EHV Equine Health Self Certification process to be introduced at shows

The recent EHV-1 outbreak in Europe has so far claimed the lives of 17 horses and resulted in the FEI announcing a cancellation of international shows in some countries as a result.

With competition and wider equestrian activities due to get underway shortly, British Equestrian and their member bodies are working with the Equine Infectious Diseases Action Group (EIDAG) to help mitigate the spread of EHV from Europe.

In response to the reports of the disease centring on elite events in the Iberian Peninsula, showjumpers, eventers and dressage horses returning to the UK from these areas have been identified and traced.  Strict quarantine is being imposed on their return with comprehensive protocols in place for biosecurity and testing.

The EIDAG are also advising that all member bodies restrict activities to ‘stay local’ until at least 12 April so no overnight stays or stabling. There are a small number of elite training and competitions which require overnight stays currently scheduled. These gatherings will have enhanced biosecurity and protocols in place which have been prepared by the BEF Director of Equine Sports Science and Medicine, John McEwen.

In a further step to minimise any spread of EHV, the EIDAG also recommend the implementation of a new equine health self-certification process for riders to declare that their horses are healthy and have not been in contact with any others showing signs of infectious disease. 

British Showjumping fully support this recommendation and have agreed to implement the self-certification process and to have it in place from the resumption of sport until and including the 12 April.  This process requirement could extend past the 12 April should the EHV risk level dictate it.

The new self-certification process will require a health declaration form to be submitted to the show organiser for each horse expected to enter the venue.  The form can be completed by either the owner or rider and needs to be with the event organiser 24 hours before arrival.  Should a horse arrive at the venue without the form having been submitted their entry will need to be forfeited and the horse should not be allowed on to the venue grounds.

An electronic copy of the horse health declaration form can be found on the link below and the new process will require show organisers and venue owners to request the form is completed by either the rider or owner and sent back to them 24 hours before the horse arrives at the venue.   Should the form not be received prior to arrival then the horse is to be refused entry to the venue.

We trust that this our members will see this as a positive move and also give them some reassurances that all steps are being taken to ensure the risk is mitigated as much as it can be when they start competing again after this latest period of enforced shut down.

We are working very hard at Speetley to manage the various disciplines of equestrian sport responsibly.  To ensure you are able to continue safely this season, and beyond, I sincerely ask you to adhere at all times to the measures in place.  with many areas of the UK being subject to different and rapidly changing restrictions we urge all competitors to consider retrictions in their own area before travelling to the centre.

It is the responsibility of each competitor to ensure they are complying with the latest regulations so please adhere to these measures and keep our sport running.

Good luck,, keep safe and thank you,

Lisa Renshaw

OUR STORY

I first met David Andrews of Andrews Bowen five years ago when he arrived to quote for a 'small sand school' for the handful of liveries who occupied Speetley at that time.

His innovative and exciting design so impressed me that he didn't have to try very hard to sell the first of our two arenas .  So it came to be that SEC was born, no forethought, no big dream - serendipity!

From the true novice to the accomplished Olympian SEC has become a venue to support your ambitions, great or small, training or competing, day or night, and so, through the evolvement of SEC, it became my ambition to offer superior and safe facilities at affordable prices for what is, undoubtedly, a diverse and great sport.
We are a very small family orientated business. The ethos of all those who contribute to the training and the competing share our mindset - to be above all things, courteous, helpful, encouraging, educational and supportive. 

In the five years since that meeting with Andrews Bowen, Speetley has altered beyond all recognition. Each year has seen major new development spurred from the first arena. They are,  the dressage arena/warm up arena, XC course, the arena lighting, stabling, Bonjour Cafe and most recently the new water complex now under construction. British Showjumping, British Eventing, British Riding Clubs, The Pony Club, Trailblazers and more, there really is something for everyone at every level.

Financially, we were better off with the handful of liveries, but nothing could have prepared me for the joy and absolute pleasure of being a part of your trials and tribulations training and competing, meeting you all and making some wonderful and rewarding friendships. What stories I could tell from my time in the cafe and the collecting ring!

In 2018 we were delighted to receive partial funding from the LEADER European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, and this has enabled us to build a top-quality viewing cabin (our NEW Bonjour Cafe). Now customers can stay warm and refreshed all year round while enjoying great views of the whole site.

So here's to the next five years, five more seasons, five more years of development and growth and five more years of sharing experiences, happy and sad.  Thank you for your support and long may it continue and here's to the unexpected and fortunate discovery of Speetley Equestrian Centre Ltd.

- Lisa Renshaw. 2018
