Survey on the Effect of Coronavirus Pandemic on Horses and Horse Owners

By Flair - Edited Press Release

With COVID-19 impacting equine activities worldwide, Flair, LLC has teamed up with Dr. David Marlin and Science Supplements USA to develop a survey for those located in the U.S. and Canada to better understand the effects of COVID-19 on horse owners, riders, trainers, grooms, stable managers, and other equestrian professionals. The survey takes approximately five minutes and asks for no personal information. We plan to use the information gathered to produce targeted advice on how to care for our horses during these unprecedented times.

We are trying to collect as much information as possible and plan to release data to the public. The survey can be accessed here. A similar survey is being conducted for those located the UK and may be accessed here.
