SAW 2023 was HUGE! So what's next...?

Strangles Awareness Week 2023 was a fantastic few days of activity and information sharing, and we are delighted to be able to share some of the impact you helped to achieve by getting involved!

There are some BIG numbers there and, although it takes time to collate data from such a widespread campaign, we want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who made a difference:

  • Creating/posting/sharing content on social media
  • Taking part in the Temp Check Challenge 
  • Attending a webinar or client evening
  • Having a conversation about Strangles
  • Making temperature taking part of routine horse care
  • Or anything else... In one case, baking thermometer-themed cupcakes for SAW afternoon tea on their yard (see below - amazing!!)

Your commitment, positivity and creativity achieves so much for horse health!

Looking forward to SAW 2024

Following such a successful week, the SAW Collaborators are already planning next year's campaign. Never ones to rest on our laurels, we want to reach even more people with information and ideas that will help prevent the spread of this nasty, common, but often avoidable disease.

We welcome comments, suggestions and feedback so get in touch anytime at and watch this space for news and updates over the coming months!
