Due to several recent outbreaks of equine disease that have affected the industry on a national scale, biosecurity is becoming increasingly commonplace in yards across the UK. Below is information to help you understand, plan ane implement biosecurity procedures in your yard. These are free to download and have been sourced from leading equestrian companies, charities and associations.

These resources are available free of charge to all, and always will be. All we ask is that if you use any of the documentation, or find the information contained herein useful, please consider adding your yard to LiveryList, and/ or making a secure donation to help cover the work and research that goes into providing these resources:
