The vetting procedure is a process laid down by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RVCS) and British Equine Veterinary Association (BEVA)


There are two standard vetting procedures – a full five stage examination or a limited two stage examination.


These stages are:-


1. Examination of the horse at rest – This includes examination of heart, lungs, eyes, back, mouth/ teeth, limbs, skin, hooves, and checking for Microchip.


2. Walk and trot up.


3. Strenuous Exercise – can be ridden or lunged or both, sufficient to raise heart rate and will depend on use of horse and level of fitness.


4. Period of rest – when the heart and lungs will be monitored - markings will be taken and a blood sample collected (If requested – it is advisory)


5. Second trot up - including flexion tests and lunging on a firm/hard surface.
