Due to changes with the Horse Race Betting Levy Board (HBLB) grant, the Society will no longer request a clear E.V.A. (Equine Viral Arteritis) or proof of vaccination prior to issuing stallion service books.
The HBLB do not require this to be compulsory now, but it is instead a recommendation. The Society strongly recommends that the E.V.A. blood screening or vaccinations are carried out prior to the use of stallions.
The full HBLB recommendations are available on the link below. Note the recommendations of E.I.A. (Equine Infection Anaemia) and C.E.M. (Contagious Equine Metritis).
