Equine sports have long traditions, and is part of the Olympic disciplines. Yet even if the rest of the sports events have welcomed the 21st century and ICT, equine sports are yet to fully embrace the values and help ICT may bring to this noble sport. Horses need to get influenza vaccinations according to regulations, yet the way to register a horse’s vaccination and checking that vaccinations are in order is done in a very old-fashioned way, basically manually. The research addresses the question how IS and mobile technology could help the various bodies involved in the equine sports to perform their duties with more ease and precision. In this paper the research topic is what competition riders and horse owners are prepared to divulge of their horses vaccination information.
