About Us

Equine MediRecord is a system designed to take the pain out of conforming to regulation on your training yard. Our system makes it quick and painless to keep the medicines register up to date, giving you certainty that you are in compliance with regulation, meaning you can spend more time training racehorses and less time filling out paperwork.

The company from its inception has been supported by a number of trainers and vets who had expressed their desire for a system that would aid them to stay compliant with the regulatory burden placed upon them. Equine MediRecord is a trainers initiative to aid them with the day-to-day medicines regulatory paperwork.
