NRBC Adopts EHV-1 Biosecurity Protocol

nrbcflylogblackThe Great Southwest Equestrian Center in coordination with the Texas Animal Health Commission, Currie Equine, and the show management for Great Southwest Spring Roundup, Pin Oak Charity Horse Show, Spring Gathering Charity Horse Show and the National Reining Breeders Classic would like to announce the Health Protocols to be used during these shows:

• All horses must enter the grounds through the Mason road entrance BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 7AM AND 6PM. All horses must be checked in at the check-in office upon entering the show grounds.

• A health certificate drawn within 7 days prior to arrival is required for all horses entering the grounds. Those who need health certificates when they arrive can contact Currie Equine Clinic at 979-826-2852 or contact the show vet on the grounds.

• You should be able to document your horse’s normal temperature before arrival. Please do not ship horses with elevated temperatures. It is recommended that you establish a log of temperatures taken at least twice daily before you arrive on the show grounds. If there is an elevated temperature for more than a 24-hour period, please consult your local veterinarian immediately.

• We are requiring a temperature chart be kept for each horse on the grounds at 12-hour intervals and that this chart be made readily available to the show veterinarians upon request. Temperature charts will be provided at check-in.

• Any horse on the show grounds with a fever of unknown origin or of suspicious origin must be reported to the show vet and show management. It is always better to err on the side of safety. Isolation stalls will be available on the grounds or at a local veterinary practice if the need arises.

Please take the time to review the USDA Biosecurity pamphlet.
