Equine Health

The TBA’s veterinary activity aims to improve equine health and Thoroughbred breeding practices.

At the heart of the TBA’s strategic objectives, is the commitment to protect and promote the health and welfare of the British thoroughbred and to support breeders with the provision of educational materials to guide on best practice.

Within this section you will find a wealth of information, advice and supporting documents relating to thoroughbred reproductive health, veterinary research and thoroughbred welfare guidance. 

Please view the latest TBA podcasts here, which feature updates on Equine Welfare.
