  • Vaccination Policy Details.
    Bury Farm runs under an annual vaccination policy. Flu vaccinations are mandatory for all horses and ponies and they must be in possession of a valid flu vaccination certificate. It is the owner's responsibility to ensure that the horse's vaccinations are up to date and correctly recorded on the diagrammatic vaccination record. Spot checks will be regularly carried out at shows and all passports will be checked if stabling has been booked. An initial primary course of two vaccinations must be given: the second vaccination must be administered within 21-92 days of the first vaccination. Horses may attend events 7 days after receiving the second vaccination of the primary course. (for clarity: no horse or pony may compete on the same day as a relevant injection is given or on any of the 6 days following such an injection). The first booster must be administered within 7 calendar months following the date of the administration of the second vaccination of the primary course. Booster vaccinations must be administered at a maximum of 12 months intervals. Bury Farm reserves the right to turn away any horse/pony that does not fit the vaccination criteria.
