Veterinarians Seek Survey Respondents For Study On Horse Collapse And Sudden Death

A group of veterinarians and riders affiliated with the University of Bern (Switzerland) are interested in improving horse health and safety. They’re studying collapse and sudden death in horses in order to design strategies to prevent these episodes. 

If you’ve ridden, trained or treated a horse that collapsed or died during or near exercise they’re hoping you’ll fill out a questionnaire.

A group of veterinarians and riders affiliated with the University of Bern (Switzerland) are interested in improving horse health and safety. They’re studying collapse and sudden death in horses in order to design strategies to prevent these episodes. 

If you’ve ridden, trained or treated a horse that collapsed or died during or near exercise they’re hoping you’ll fill out a questionnaire. 

Names of people and horses will always remain confidential. The links go to an anonymous questionnaire, so you won’t be identifiable if you don’t want to be. The goal is to have one questionnaire per case/horse.
