The EN team is keeping a close eye on EHV-1 news both in North America and abroad. While we’re dealing with a few currently isolated cases on this side of the pond EHV-1 is throwing a big wrench in the European calendar, most recently cancelling the Sunshine Tour in Spain. We know that Tim and Jonelle Price, who’ve been getting in some show jumping miles there, had Kentucky on their calendar for a few of their 5* horses and this could very well cramp their plans.
Some U.S. events next weekend — so far Red Hills and Copper Meadows — are implementing extra biosecurity measures and requirements for competitors, so if you’re competing next weekend make sure to double check these. As we’ve all experienced in our own lives this past year, good hygiene and biosecurity measures are never a bad idea so remember to wear your mask, wash your hands, and don’t let your horses touch noses.
