ARVS - Association of Racecourse Veterinary Surgeons

The Association aims to promote and safeguard the safety and welfare of horses at race meetings and to provide a forum for discussion and the exchange of ideas on the management of injury and disease on racecourses.

To learn more about the Association, you will find news, details of our events, useful information and advice, as well as valuable file downloads, details of the current Committee members and all the contact details you need to get in touch with us at the ARVS.

Information on the criteria to be met to be a Racecourse Veterinary Surgeon can be found here and the latest racehorse health research news can be found on the HBLB Racehorse Health blog.

Meet the ARVS Committee

The Committee of the Association liaises with the British Horseracing Authority [BHA] and other equine bodies and associations on veterinary matters within the racing industry, advising on veterinary and welfare issues.

ARVS Membership Benefits

Membership supports a group that lobbies the interests of racehorse welfare and safety and the interests of veterinary surgeons involved in the racing industry. The ARVS works closely with the British Horseracing Authority to this end.

Meetings – Book your place!

The ARVS has been instrumental in improving the standard of veterinary care and welfare of horses on UK racecourses through the provision of quality CPD in the annual Casualty Management Seminar and Summer Scientific Meetings.
