Export of Horses Traveling To Europe & South America
Exporting horses from the USA to another country requires an isolation/quarantine period in a USDA approved facility. Your horse, by law, will then be tested for different diseases in order to meet all export requirements. During this time we use two different facilities that specialize in this kind of exportation that take care of all blood and paperwork that must be completed with care and then approved by the USDA prior to your horses’ departure.
The isolation facilities we use consist of 12 x 12 stalls, horse walkers, multiple kinds of grass turn out paddocks, Individual paddocks with attached sheds are provided for horses not accustomed to stalls such as broodmares or weanlings or offered at the owners’ request. Stalls are bedded with pine shavings over rubber matted floors. Timers provide 16 hours of lighting each day and horses are blanketed as needed during cooler months. The quarantine facilities have a separate staff dedicated to caring for each horse’s individual needs.
Full-service Export includes:
- 30 days quarantine / daily care
