Heavy Horses

The Heavy Horse Schedule for the 2020 Rutland County Show is now available to download. 

The Heavies enjoyed one of their largest turnouts in the country at the 2019 show and we're delighted at their success.
 
This year we have affiliated with both the Shire Horse Society and The Cydesdale Horse Society. In the Shire Classes the best filly in show wins a 'Silver Spoon' whilst in the Clydesdales they present the Cyldesdale Horse Society Shield top the best yearling or colt.
 

 
Equine Flu

 

Horses must have been vaccinated to comply with the requirements of the primary course (1st vaccination and then 2nd vaccination between 21 – 92 days later), followed by the first booster (150 – 215 days) and all subsequent boosters.  Horses may compete having received the primary course and prior to the first booster but not within 7 days of receiving a vaccine dose.

 

Horses must have been vaccinated within 6 months before the show but not less than 7 days of arriving at the show.

 

Foals

In-foal mares that have already had vaccinations of primary Equine Influenza course should be vaccinated 4-6 weeks before the foal is due to be born.

Foals should be vaccinated for Equine Influenza at 6 months to commence their primary course.

 

We urge all owners to adhere to strict bio-security protocols at all times.

Vaccinations are subject to local risk assessments by the attending veterinarians.
