Email hack 1/3/22

*****PLEASE NOTE CLIENTS ARE RECEIVING EMAILS FROM US TELLING THEM TO CLICK A LINK TO DOWNLOAD FILES - DO NOT DO THIS, IT IS NOT US!! We are having this looked into by our IT professionals. The emails come from 'Blackdown Equine' but if you check the email address it is not actually from an '@blackdownequineclinic.com' email. Apologies for any inconvenience this has caused. Please also note that invoices will be going out this week, which will come from our main office email (office@blackdownequineclinic.com), this will have your invoices as a PDF document, not a link to download, which will be safe to open.******

Polo Vaccinations- Update for 2022

Current vaccination regulations relating to Equine Influenza can be found at www.hpa-polo.co.uk/welfare. All ponies must be compliant to be allowed onto HPA-affiliated premises, so it’s worth taking the time to check! In brief, all ponies (and Umpire ponies) may play after a primary course (first and second dose 21-92 days (3 weeks-3 months) apart). This should then be followed by a first booster at 150-215 days (5-7 months) and subsequent boosters within 1 calendar year of the last dose; or, if the previous booster was given in March/April, then within this window. IN ADDITION, ponies must have received a vaccine dose (2nd dose of primary course or a booster) within the previous 6 months +21 days to attend HPA-affiliated premises. Ponies that have fallen outside this window (but still within the primary course + booster criteria) are eligible to play 2 days after receiving a vaccine dose.
