Westgate Labs Steps Up to Support British Grooms

01 December 2023

Westgate Labs and the British Grooms Association (BGA) are pleased to announce a new partnership.

Lucy Katan, Executive Director of the BGA said;

“We are excited to welcome Westgate Labs as one of our sponsors. We share a passion for innovation and education, so it is great news for our members that they will learn about targeted and sustainable worm control.”

Working together, the BGA and Westgate Labs will raise awareness for issues surrounding wormer resistance and educate as to why worm egg counts should be used for worm management.

Claire Shand, the Director of Marketing & Communications for Westgate Laboratories said:

"We are delighted to come on board as sponsors to support the fantastic work of the BGA. Grooms are such an integral but often vulnerable part of the workforce on the frontline of horse care and deserve recognition and representation for the invaluable services they provide.

"By backing our industry professionals, we can give them the tools to tackle the important issue of wormer resistance head-on, one of the biggest challenges currently facing equine health. It's a collaboration that feels very aligned, representing our shared dedication to the wellbeing of our horses and the professionals who care for them, and in doing so contributing to a thriving and sustainable industry." 

British Grooms Association members have access to guidance and support for a vast range of employment matters, training and trusted insurance. The Equestrian Employers Association offers a complete employment toolkit especially tailored to the equestrian industry and includes the contract creator, staff handbook creator, free downloads, legal documents, advice and access to the Pensions and Payroll.

We look forward to working together!
