XV Insight are carrying out a survey to understand the impact the coronavirus is having on horse owners in the UK. Whether you keep your horses at home or in livery the coronavirus pandemic may be affecting how you look after your horses and what you do with them.


The survey is designed to find out, in detail, what you are doing with your horses during the pandemic and what concerns you may have. The questionnaire is quite detailed in order that we can really understand what live is like for horse owners during the coronavirus pandemic and how you are adapting to the various restrictions being placed on people.

We want to hear from you if you own donkeys, ponies, horse or heavy horses. If you have a horse on loan that you are responsible for looking after then we want to hear from you too!

If, additionally you are employed in the equestrian sector or run an equestrian business we’d like to know what impact it is having on you too.
