Biosecurity During Competition

In this Learning Center video, Katie Flynn covers biosecurity during an event. Methods to protect horses include monitoring your horse's temperature, not sharing water or nose rags, washing hands or using hand sanitizer before touching a new horse, and reporting sick horses. USEF requires all competitions to have an isolation plan. State or federal animal health officials may also mandate next steps for quarantining horses that have been exposed to disease.
