I think it would be wise, for all people who had contact to infected horses, to stay away from any other equine facility. My gosh it‘s foaling season.

There are advancements in treatments for some injuries, so getting the horse back to their stall gives it a chance to be thor...

Re: In Memoriam 2019

Work rider Natasha Galpin died yesterday after the horse she was riding on the gallops collapsed fatally from a ruptured artery at Iain Jardine’s stable.

Natasha also ran her own yard and competed in eventing.

Awful tragedy :cry:
