Before the Show
As you prepare for the Competition, please continue to monitor your horses health. Any horses showing a temperature should remain at home. Thank you!

    During the Show
    USEF and Competition would like to remind all participants of the importance of following biosecurity best practices during the show.

    • Recomment Temperature checks twice daily .
    • Any suspicion of illness in horses, including a temperature over 101.5F, should be immediately reported to the show office and veterinarian.
    • Immediately isolate and/or quarantine any horse exhibiting symptoms of illness.
    • Avoid animal-to-animal contact.
    • Do not share equipment between horses.
    • IF YOU MUST SHARE, scrub and clean equipment with detergent and dry completely between shared use.
    • When filling water buckets, DO NOT dip the end of the hose in each bucket. Hold the hose above the water when filling.
    • Wash/sanitize hands thoroughly before and after direct horse contact.
    • Limit human-horse contact.
    • Because humans can be a means of disease transmission, avoid moving between barns unless absolutely necessary.
    • No grazing.
