Equestrian events generally call for advance registrations, sign-ups, enrollments, stall deposits, and other arrangements. Current negative Coggins test results and veterinary certificates are musts for traveling horses – particularly if equines cross state lines. Horse show, training clinic, and other equine event hosts may opt to bar entry to horses arriving on their premises without appropriate documentation. Haulers and horse owners are advised to research requirements ahead of time.
Occasionally, changes or cancellations may occur with equestrian events. For this reason, riders, trainers, horse owners, auditors, spectators, vendors, volunteers, and others do well to double-check event details before departing for their chosen Upper Midwest horse happenings.
