EHV-1 Protocols & Best Practices

Due to recent positive cases of EHV-1 and consultation with our treating veterinarians & following USEF/CDFA policies we will be following extra protocols to keep your horses safe during the Winter Horse Trials. We appreciate everyone helping to keep our horses in a safe environment.

Out of State Horses:

All out of state horses entering the property must present to the horse show office a certificate of veterinary inspection (health certificate) from a licensed veterinarian dated within 30 days of arrival & Negative Coggins within 12 months of arrival.

EHV Exposure Release:

Any person shipping horses into Twin Rivers Ranch must sign a document stating that the horses entering the facility are in good health and have not been in close proximity to a horse that has been exposed to EHV-1 or EHV-M in the last 21 days.

Temperature Checks/Log:

Temperatures should be taken daily, 3 days before travel. Each stall will have a temperature log that will need to be completed twice a day. Upon arrival, please take your horse’s temperature and record it on the log. Any horse with a temperature of 101.5 F or higher should be immediately reported to the show office and will be quarantined away from other horses. Any horse’s temperature not recorded, rider will be given one warning and then asked to leave the property. 

Biosecurity Best Practices:

Please take a moment to refresh yourself on basic biosecurity with your horses, so we can stay safe and healthy competition:

• Do not share equipment between horses including feed and water buckets. Handlers and riders should maintain distances between horses at all times.
• Practice good hygiene always. Handlers should wash hands in between handling horses and maintain proper biosecurity protocols in the barn and at the rings. 
• When filling water buckets, do not drop hose into the bucket.
