Horse Biosecurity Guidebook

The health of a horse is the responsibility of the horse owner. Gaining more knowledge on diseases, management practices and hazards is an important step in caring for a horse.

Biosecurity is the end result of the total management practices that are designed by the horse producer/owner to reduce infectious diseases carried onto farms and stables by new horses, other animals and wildlife; equipment; people; insects and pests; and feed and water.

The Horse Biosecurity Guidebook was prepared by the Saskatchewan Horse Federation and the Ministry of Agriculture.
