  • Equine Health Certificate

    From the GA Dept of Ag:

    "In order to transport your equine across state lines, a certificate of veterinary inspection (CVI) and negative test for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA-Coggins) is required. The CVI, commonly known as a health certificate, requires that a veterinarian inspect your horse for signs of contagious or infectious diseases to assure that the equine appears healthy."

    Health Certificates are usually good for 30 days. Be prepared to show your horses' health certificates and negative Coggins tests at any Ag Inspection Stations or to any State authority who asks.

    Once at the GNFA facility, the Coggins tests sent with your entries will be checked against your horses in the barns.
