2020 Breeding Season – Travelling Mares to Stud

2020 Breeding Season – Travelling Mares to Stud

Following advice from the Rare Breeds Survival Trust concerning the effect COVID 19 movement restrictions have on the 2020 breeding season for rare breed equines, the Society has produced a protocol and template forms for our breeders to use if they need to travel a mare to a stallion for covering during the current restrictions. Use of this protocol and forms, while not mandatory, is strongly advised in order to comply with current government restrictions on curbing the spread of coronavirus and as evidence of a legitimate controlled journey by the transporter of the mare(s) if challenged by the authorities.

Please find the protocol and forms on the Policies page
