Coronavirus Pandemic - Due to ongoing health concerns related to the coronavirus pandemic I have decided to suspend all non-emergency veterinary services.  Emergency and urgent care will be provided.  During an emergency I am requesting that only one owner/trainer/handler be present and that physical distancing be practiced as best we can.  During this time feel free to call and consult about any aspect of veterinary care.  Medication needed can be shipped or picked up.  Hopefully this will end soon and we can return to full service.  

USEF Vaccination Requirement - All horses entering the show grounds must be accompanied by documentation of Equine Influenza Virus and Equine Herpes Virus (Rhinopneumonitis) vaccinations within six months.

 
USEF requires all horses competing in hunter/jumper sanctioned events to be microchipped. Sanctioned events restricted by breed do not have to comply with this rule.

 
Microchipping: Microchips are now required for horses newly registered with the FEI.  All horses may be microchipped.  The procedure is simple and permanent and provides foolproof identification for any horse.  It is essential for the identification of horses following natural disasters.  Please ask for more details.
