Foot & Mouth Outbreak

The British Horse Society is advising riders to keep off bridleways and farm land until all danger of the disease spreading has passed. This is out of courtesy to farmers who are understandably worried and riders should take care not to add to those worries.

There is no danger to horses as such - they cannot catch it - but there will be a restriction on movement in the exclusion zones:
Woodchester/Nailsworth in Gloucestershire
Brentwood in Essex
Isle of Wight
Great Horwood in Buckinghamshire

This will affect any shows or events planned in those areas.
