Breeding activities in horses (artificial insemination, semen collection and pregnancy diagnosis) must be carried out by a veterinarian

Stallions must not be kept at schools and the collection of semen must not be carried out at schools.

The horses’ rectal tissue is much more delicate than that of cattle. This makes the mare much more risky to palpate. Therefore, rectal palpation for pregnancy testing and artificial insemination should only be carried out by a veterinarian.
