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.
You must present your horse’s Coggins test and health certificate at check-in. Show management will have the copies sent with entries on hand for the duration of the show.

A maximum of 6 horses will be allowed in the ring at one time, and trainers must be courteous of others in the ring when setting jumps. Riders and trainers who are monopolizing jumps, jump heights, or practicing unsafe techniques will be excused from the ring by the steward. A maximum of 20 minutes per individual horse/rider combination will be allowed in their jumping session on Thursday.
The Friday morning Schooling will be run as an unjudged class with an order of go over a set course. Riders with three refusals will be excused from the warm-up class. Riders missing their order of go will not be moved down in the order and forfeit their warm-up class opportunity on Friday morning.
