  • 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.
