Outbreak of Strangles
The Dressage Ireland committee has recently received news of an outbreak of strangles.
This serves as a timely reminder for everyone intending to compete at Dressage Ireland shows to take particular care to monitor their horses for any signs of ill health. If there is any sign that your horse may be unwell, please do not bring it to a show venue. Similarly, if your horse has been in recent contact with a horse which is now unwell, please do not bring it to a show. If you have any doubts about your horse's health status, please consult your veterinary surgeon.
