EXHIBITORS PLEASE NOTE: HEALTH ADVISORY
Due to the Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) outbreak in several states (Missouri is NOT one of these states), horses coming from states with active cases, are required to have a “Permit” issued by the Missouri Dept of Agriculture in addition to their normal health certificate issued within 15 days of arrival at the National Equestrian Center. 
 
Horses coming from unaffected states simply need a Health Certificate dated within the last 30 days.  As is standard, all horses must have a current Coggins. All health certificates,regardless of the state, must have the following statement: “The animals are free of visible signs of contagious, infectious, or communicable disease.  The animals have not been exposed to VS and within the past 30 days have not been within 10 miles of any site under quarantine for VS.”

Please be ready to present your health certificates to NEC staff AT THE GATE prior to entering the show grounds and again in the show office at check-in.

Current affected states include: Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, Texas and Wyoming. Oklahoma has been removed from the list.
 

We thank you for your cooperation and patience in this important safety matter.
