Horse Health Declarations
10-day temperatures of ALL horses regardless of vaccination status. Click here for the form or download it from ManeHub when nominating.
A good track offering variety and good terrain with the usual number of volunteers to open the gates for all. We have estimated that there is a friendly person to say “hi” every 5km. Work that out over a course and that is a lot of “hellos”. Water points at least every 10km. There is plenty of wet spots along the track offering good feed for horses to munch on to keep those gut sounds healthy. Definitely no smoking on track. Dogs must be kept on a leash at all times and in control by the handler at all times. Fires must be kept in fire pits about ground.
