Every year, the BHS are inundated with ragwort concerns from equestrians, many of whom invest large amounts of time and money in trying to control the weed.

Therefore, BHS are delighted to announce that they are working with Defra to launch an exciting new research project to discover the real facts about ragwort and horses.

Their new survey will gather data from across England on the perceptions and reality of the impact of ragwort. The results will inform measures to ensure the appropriate use of the Weeds Act 1959, the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and other relevant legislation.

They need your help now.
By completing the ten-minute survey, you’ll help them establish a true picture of the situation.

Please take the time to complete the survey at
www.bhs.org.uk/ragwort. Even better, once you have done this, please forward to your friends and family and ask them to take part.

The survey closes on 15 August 2014, so don’t miss this chance – have your say and help the BHS make the biggest difference we can.
