Equine Vaccinations for Championships

Due to the shortages of equine influenza vaccine supply in the last year, Hartpury have confirmed that they will only require the last influenza vaccination to have been administered within twelve months of the National Championships in 2023, so long as the preceding vaccinations have been administered according to RDA policy.

Please see RDA Rulebook for further information on the MyRDA National Championships page.
