The flowers are popping out (between the snow squalls) meaning Springtime and horse showing season in Virginia. Are your horses’ Coggins test and Health Certificates current? New options for both are now available to make your life easier.
Digital Coggins tests mean no more scrambling to locate needed paperwork at 6:00 am the morning of your competition, trail ride or foxhunt. The cost is the same as a traditional paper Coggins, but allows you to access your horses’ records anytime, anywhere with your mobile device or the computer at the horse show office.
Health certificates are required for travel across state lines and now Blue Ridge Equine Clinic offers the new six month Health Certificates through the Virginia Department of Agriculture. Save time and money with one health certificate good for six months that is recognized in 14 states throughout the Southeast and mid-Atlantic.
We always recommend checking the requirements of your shipping destination, as some venues have more stringent restrictions than others, according to local equine health concerns. Call us today to schedule your appointment so you can be sure your horses’ Coggins and Health Certificates are ready for riding season!
