The 2018 Atlantic Canada Equestrian Championships (ACE) is up to 4 disciplines this fall: Dressage, Horse Trials, Jumping, and Reining.

Biosecurity Series

In the Barn - #2 Focus on Prevention

Be proactive and focus on what you can control to prevent a potential issue before it arises. Vaccines are your first line of defense.

Vaccines are useful for preventing diseases caused by viruses (like flue and equine herpes) and bacteria (like Strangles); talk to your vet about how they lower the odds of sickness and limit the severity of the sickness.

Antibiotics don't work for diseases caused by viruses; prevention is the best option.
