Health Certificate Update

HEALTH CERTIFICATE UPDATE EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY

All of us at Great Southwest Equestrian Center want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding surrounding our health paper requirements for horses showing here this spring. Although this was done for the welfare of our horses we also appreciate this adds another expense as well as another task to everyone’s already full plate.

Starting June 17, 2019 we are going to amend the seven day health certificate requirement to 21 days prior to arrival on GSEC property. For horses showing multiple weeks during the fall and winter season we will offer the following extension policy: If the horse will be returning to GSEC in 45 days or less from the date of issue of the initial health certificate the owner or agent may fill out a Declaration of Horse Health form in lieu of another health certificate. This extension period may only be used by horses that have been on the property and already presented a health certificate. This form is currently available by contacting Amy Uniss-Coleman at auniss@aol.com.

All horses returning after the 45 day time frame will be required to have another health certificate.

Please be aware that the requirements for a negative Coggins test dated within 12 months and vaccination records that show that the horse has been vaccinated for Equine Influenza Virus and Equine Herpes Virus (Rhinopneumonitis) within six months prior to entering the grounds will remain the same.

If you vaccinate your own horse(s) please save the receipt from the purchase as well as the serial number and expiration date of the vaccine as well as the date it was administered.

If you have any questions or concerns please call Amy Uniss-Coleman at 281-978-0767.

Again, thank you to everyone for your help and understanding this spring and into the future.
