Equine Bio Genie joins our sponsors

16th May 2024

The British Grooms Association (BGA), and Equestrian Employers Association (EEA) are delighted to announce their new partnership with Equine Bio Genie.

As world leaders in equine environmental health, Equine Bio Genie are the perfect match for both the BGA and the EEA.

Ben Tuckey, founder of Equine Bio Genie, has developed a unique equine service alongside the most advanced biocidal disinfectant, to keep a
horse in the healthiest environment. Their medical-grade disinfectant has been efficiency tested at the Irish Equine Centre.

Equine Bio Genie's 360-degree approach to biosecurity treats the air, surfaces, and the horse's drinking water. This system eliminates all types of fungus,  bacteria, viruses, mould, EHV-1, Strangles, and Aspergillus spores for optimal environmental health, while having ZERO impact on humans and horses.

Approved and used by top veterinary hospitals, their unique disinfectant is only available from Equine Bio Genie. Products can be purchased for self application, or the Equine Bio Genie team of experts can service your yard.

High-powered misting machines are used to thoroughly treat all areas of your yard, such as the stables, horse walker, feed room, tack room etc. Treatments range from monthly to quarterly and horses may be returned to their stables immediately. 

The Equine Bio Genie water treatment prevents algae from forming, keeps the water clear and dramatically improves the quality of your horse's drinking water, by eliminating an unrivalled spectrum of waterborne pathogens and significantly reducing the bactericidal and virucidal levels.

By having regular biosecurity measures in place at home and competitions, you are killing the bacteria and keeping on top of the pathogenic load to provide the horses in your care with a healthy environment.

“We are excited to have another mega equestrian brand supporting the groom’s professional association. Our collaboration with Equine Bio Genie will assist us further in our mission to educate grooms on the crucial issue of biosecurity.” Lucy Katan, Executive Director of the BGA & EEA

Working together the BGA, EEA and Equine Bio Genie will raise awareness on the importance of maintaining the health of horses by providing a pathogen-free environment, as well as pure and secure water.

“We are delighted to be partnering with the BGA and the EEA, our products are designed to make life easier, we all know the hard work involved with grooming and stable management. We look forward to supporting these important associations.” Helen Tuckey, Director, Equine BIO Genie Ltd.
