The aim of this diploma thesis was to get actual basic data concerning the prevalence of equine gastrointestinal parasites in Austria. For this purpose four horse farms in the southern Lower Austria were analysed between July 2010 and June 2011 and the effects of farm management and farm hygiene on the status of parasites were observed. The relevant factors, i.e. keeping, pasture- and feeding management as well as the anthelmintic treatment and the age- and sex patterns, were to be observed. Subsequently, the relationship of these factors and their correlation to the egg shedding was to be evaluated. Also, the relationship of body condition score and egg shedding was to be investigated.
