NEHS terms and conditions

Will my personal details be shared with other people?

If you specifically give your consent to the sharing of your personal data (name and email address) with The Horse Trust as our partners in this project when given the option to do so, we will share your personal data in accordance with the consent you have given. We will only share your personal data with The Horse Trust for this purpose and not for fundraising and marketing purposes. The Horse Trust will then make contact with you and provide information about how they manage your personal data.

If you do not give that consent, we will not share your personal data with Horse Trust. In that case, the following terms would apply:

We would collate all the results (on an anonymized basis) to build a snapshot picture of horse health in the UK. We would use your email address provided to inform you if you have won a prize and to notify you of future equine health and welfare surveys.

Your contact details will not be used by Blue Cross except as set out above and will never be passed to a third party.  The details of your completed survey will remain anonymous in every context in which they are used. To find out more about how we use and protect and use personal data please see our privacy policy at

What will you do with all the results?

The survey results are interpreted by Professor Josh Slater, Professor of Equine Clinical Studies at The Royal Veterinary College and then shared across the equestrian sector to help establish benchmarks for equine health and disease in the UK and define priorities for future research, training and education. In the future we are hoping a paper on the NEHS may be published in the Equine Veterinary Journal to help equine vets recognise the importance of this valuable project.
