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 US 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 5 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. Please consider copying and pasting this link in a social media post or email to your contacts for participation: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Horse_Owner_Coronavirus_North_America
The research team is comprised of Dr David Marlin PhD, Cambridge, UK; Louisa Taylor BVM BVS (Hons) BVMedSci (Hons) MRCVS; Dr Jane Williams PhD, Hartpury University, UK; Dr Shannon Pratt-Phillips PhD, North Carolina State University; and Jenna Kutzner-Mulligan MS, Science Supplements USA.
