Membership of the ARVS supports the Association in lobbying for the interests of racehorse welfare and safety and the interests of veterinarians involved in the racing industry. The ARVS keeps up regular communication with the British Horseracing Authority to this end.  The BHA uses the ARVS as their voice within the industry.

Membership entitles practice members to significant discount to the CPD courses which are mandatory for the training of veterinary surgeons attending racecourses and point to points in the UK.

Newsletters are circulated regularly to keep members up to date with regulatory issues and topical subjects in the racing industry.
