Home Counties WPCA Show Cancelled

The HCWPCA Committee has taken the decision to CANCEL it’s foal & youngstock show on Sunday 20th November 2016 that was due to be held at Keysoe Equeatrian Centre, Church Rd, Keysoe MK44 2JP.

The decision has been taken after an outbreak of Equine Herpes Virus (EHV) at a livery yard in South Bedfordshire within 25 miles from the event venue at the beginning of the month. This outbreak has sadly led to the euthanasia of a number of horses. The infected yard and another close by are currently under quarantine and will still be within this period at the time of our proposed event.

The HCWPCA Committee, having regard for all the information and Veterinary advice available,consider that the risks to equines and attendees presented by this especially contagious virus are too high and has therefore taken the responsible decision to cancel the show.
