Ensuring you are caring for your horse responsibly has never been so easy with the launch of a simple, concise horse care checklist at this year’s National Equine Forum in London on 5 March.

Its purpose is to cut through the reams of advice currently available and set out clearly the practical essentials of good horse care including nutrition, safety, vaccination, parasite control, disease prevention and transport.
