The goal of this study is to understand non-racing horse owners’ opinions about exotic diseases. As a horse owner/keeper, your opinions are important for measuring exotic disease risk. Participating in this study will ensure that your views are central to exotic disease research and communication. We hope that the results of this study will help improve the delivery of information about exotic diseases.

This questionnaire asks about your views towards exotic diseases. There are no right or wrong answers, so please answer honestly. The questionnaire will take you about 15 minutes to complete.

In appreciation of your participation, you can enter a prize draw to win one grand prize (your choice of a horse rug, saddle cloth or RVC body warmer). You will need to provide your name, email and phone number to enter the prize draw. This information will not be linked to your questionnaire responses.
