Equine Biosecurity Protocols

As members of the horse show community, we are constantly putting our horses at risk to contract infections from unknown sources. Please check with the local facility, county and/or state regarding guidelines. In addition, please check areas where you may be traveling through or laying over.

Early identification and reporting of ill horses is critical in order to trace possible points of exposure and to aid in the prevention of further spread of the disease. You should contact your veterinarian immediately for testing if a horse begins to display any symptoms of EHV

Below are some best practices you can implement immediately:


  1. Review and ensure you are prepared for quick implementation of an isolation plan at a competition grounds and/or at your home farm or facility
  2. Check your horse's temperature twice daily and maintain a temperature log
  3. Isolate horses at first signs of symptoms or illness and contact your vet immediately
  4. Keep separate feed buckets, brushes, rags, and tack/equipment for each horse
  5. Ask your veterinarian about appropriate cleaning solutions
  6. Eliminate communal or shared water troughs and buckets
  7. Practice hand washing in between handling horses
  8. Maintain social distancing for horses; limit nose to nose contact with other horses at the ring
  9. Ensure your horse is vaccinated for EHV (Rhinopneumonitis vaccine) in line with GR845
