The British Horse Society is supporting the advice from the Blue Cross on dealing with the effects of fireworks on horses.
The Blue Cross has produced a leaflet called Fireworks and Animals, which includes a section on caring for equines during the firework season.
Sheila Hardy, BHS senior executive (safety), said: "Fireworks can frighten even the most sensible of horses. The information offered on the BHS and Blue Cross websites describes measures that horse owners can take to minimise any discomfort or anxiety for their horses."

The information is available at www.bluecross.org.uk and also in paper format from both the Blue Cross and the BHS.

Further information on fireworks and horses can be found on the BHS website at www.bhs.org.uk/Riding/Riding_Safely/Other_Dangers/Fireworks.aspx
