Keeping horses free of infections can be a challenge, in particular during competitions. The Equine Herpes Virus EHV-1 is of particular concern since it is a highly contagious airborne virus with fatal consequences for the horses. The spread of this virus at shows can have a detrimental impact. One example is the outbreak during the CES Valencia Tour 2021. More than 100 horses were infected and several died due to the severity of the virus.
To help prevent catastrophic events as this one, we have created UV Equestrian in partnership with Global Equestrian Group (GEG).
GEG is the world’s leading equestrian sports group with activities in dressage, show jumping and events, the jewellery company Helgstrand Jewellery and equestrian accessories and apparel company Kingsland Equestrian, as well as other equestrian sports investments.
UV Equestrian has been created with the mission to provide safer spaces for horses with Far UV-C light, which neutralise viruses and bacteria in seconds. Thanks to a patented filter, these solutions are suitable for a continuous disinfection of stables, trailers and veterinary settings in the presence of people.
