Congratulations to our Youth  members who placed at the
2014 World Championship Appaloosa Youth Show and National Show
The Show is On8/9/14

MPAHC president Eric Henderson called for an emergency meeting of the board of directors on 8/9/14.  The main topic discussed was the Vesicular Stomatitis Virus outbreak in Colorado and the impact on the upcoming horse show in Longmont on August 30, 2014.  After careful consideration, the MPAHC Board has decided to proceed with the horse show.  The show will be cancelled only if Boulder County or the State of Colorado prohibit horse transportation across county or state lines.

While the Board has reviewed and will implement the suggestions from the Colorado State Vet, participation in horse shows is at the horse owner’s discretion.  The exhibitors and owners have the ultimate responsibility for the health and well-being of their animals.  All exhibitors should be aware of and follow the state mandated policies.  It is advised to frequently check the Colorado Department of Agriculture website at www.colorado.gov/ag for updates.  

The Board will be implementing the following policies for the show:
A current health certificate within five days (two days recommended) for all horses and the health certificates should note that the horse has been inspected for VSV
All horses should be inspected prior to unloading onto the fairgrounds
All exhibitors should disinfect stalls prior to use - bleach solution will be available
Fly spray should be liberally used (especially on the ears of horses and for gnats) by all competitors
The Board will be requesting that the Fair Grounds spray prior to our show starting

MPAHC cannot guarantee what will happen, but will implement the recommendations of the State.  Please check the website noted above for any updates or additional requirements.   At this time, MPAHC will only cancel the horse show if required to by the State of Colorado or Boulder County.

As always, please contact a board member with any questions or concerns.
