VACCINATION OF PONIES & STABLING RULES.
It is extremely important that all ponies participating at Pony Club events or wishing to avail of stabling facilities at these events are fully compliant with the rules around vaccinations.We do not want any child to be disappointed that they cannot participate in an event or enter a stable yard as a result of lapsed vaccinations.We would ask that ideally all passports are viewed by a vet, to verify that all is in order. All vaccinations must be up to date and recorded on your ponies passport. Passports must be available for inspection at all times. If your ponies vaccination has lapsed you must bring it up to date as follows:
1st Shot to be followed by 2nd Booster Shot within 21 – 90 days (4-6 weeks),followed by 3rd Shot no later than 115 – 215 days (6-7 months) after 2nd Booster and annually thereafter.
*If you are unsure, please ask your vet to check your vaccinations now.*
