Thoroughbred Health Network Launched

11 November 2015

UK - The Thoroughbred Health Network is a collaborative project of industry stakeholder organisations which needs a thriving, engaged and active network therefore, as a vet treating racehorses on the yard or at the racecourse your participation is vital.

The network will be a pilot project for Scotland and Northern England, and, if successful, will extend nationwide.

Beva aims to make available decades of research which has to date, only been accessible by academics.

Through a bespoke website, Beva will translate all available research to provide monthly advice on how to avoid, recognise or treat the most common health and performance-limiting problems encountered by Thoroughbreds in racing and training.

The Thoroughbred Health Network’s mission is to:

  • Optimise the health and welfare of the racehorse.
  • Establish a collaborative network.
  • Translate all available research on the most common health and performance-limiting problems to maximise the health of horses in training in GB.

Subscriber benefits:

  • Receive an easy-to-read summary of the latest research on a different racehorse health topic monthly.
  • Tell us what you think.
  • Contribute to the exchange of racehorse health knowledge across the network.
  • Be invited to network events.
