Disease Prevention

In order to minimise the risk of transmitting infectious diseases, we would request that all candidates change into clean clothing and, wherever possible, disinfect footwear before attending a BHS assessment; particularly if you have been in contact with horses from outside the assessment centre. If a yard you have been in contact with experiences an outbreak of an infectious disease prior to your BHS assessment, please contact the BHS Education Team on 02476 840508 for advice before attending your BHS assessment. We are very grateful for your co-operation with this protocol and are sure that you share our concern regarding the potential spread of infectious diseases within the equine population.
