Allergy to horses and the benefits of Curly
Allergy to horses in a few words by INRA 2013:
Nearly 2.5% of the French population is allergic to horses. The frequency of allergies to the horse is constantly increasing and has doubled in France in 20 years, in parallel with the development of the practice of riding. This is a problem for both riders and professionals in the industry. One study showed a higher frequency of sensitization, rhinitis and asthma in grooms. Several studies have also shown an awareness of urban and peri-urban populations without direct contact with horses.
