22 Oct Important reminder: Proper Health Documents needed for travel
Reminder for anyone making Horse Transportation arrangements, it is important to make sure that you have the proper health documents (negative coggins test, health certificate or Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, and may include other negative tests or vaccines depending on destination).
Many racetracks or show grounds have additional entry requirements. It is also important to note that original coggins tests or notarized copies of a coggins test are required to cross the Florida state line. Make sure that you or your vet does not write on a coggins test which will alter the federal document (i.e. A horse is noted on the coggins test by it’s breeding, and after being named, someone writes the horses name next to the typed breeding identification. This alters the document, and a strict law enforcement officer could turn this horse down for entry into another state because of the document alteration.)
