Rules & Policy's
PASSPORTS MUST BE SHOWN TO THE SECRETARY BEFORE UNLOADING HORSES! With regards to the ‘Equine Flu’ problem the Committee has agreed that ALL horses and ponies attending ODRC Shows and Clinics/Rallies need to have up to date 12 month flu vaccinations. If your horse has had to re-start his jabs then he will need to have received the first 2 in order to attend.

Failure to produce the passport or a finding of outdated vaccinations will result in you being asked to leave. We apologise for any inconvenience.
