Horserace Betting Levy Board Codes of Practice

The Suffolk Horse Society receives an annual grant from the Horserace Betting Levy Board and would like to draw attention to the HBLB Codes of Practice.

The Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB) publishes annually its Codes of Practice on equine disease.

The 2015 Codes are available online at codes.hblb.org.uk and can also be downloaded in PDF format for printing or viewing offline.

Applying to all breeds of horse and pony, and to both natural mating and Artificial Insemination (AI), the Codes are an essential guide for the prevention and control of the following equine diseases which represent a potential major threat to equine breeding:

  • Contagious equine metritis (CEM)
  • Equine viral arteritis (EVA)
  • Equine herpesvirus (EHV)
  • Equine coital exanthema (ECE)
  • Equine infectious anaemia (EIA)
  • Dourine
  • Guidelines on strangles
  • Guidelines on artificial insemination (AI)

For each disease there are sections which describe transmission and clinical signs, as well as advice on prevention, diagnosis and control of infection.  The Codes explain the notification requirements that apply for the four diseases that are notifiable by law: CEM, EVA, EIA and dourine.

The Codes of Practice are reviewed annually by an expert Sub Committee of HBLB’s Veterinary Advisory Committee. The Sub Committee includes representatives of: Thoroughbred breeders in Britain, Ireland, France, Germany and Italy, the non-thoroughbred sector, Defra, Specialist equine veterinary practitioners, Scientists expert in infectious disease.
