From the British Horse Society Page

Regular vaccination of ALL horses and ponies, against TETANUS, is absolutely
essential. The mortality rate may be as high as 90%, in the few animals that
recover there is a convalescent period of around 6 weeks.

Vaccination is quick, simple and highly effective and the only practical means
of long-term protection. Permanent vaccination with tetanus toxoid can be
started at any age from three months onwards. The course consists of two
primary injections given approximately four weeks apart followed by a booster
vaccination a year later and thereafter at 2- 5 yearly intervals.
