MDA’s Official Report on Montgomery County EHV1 Case

From the Maryland Department of Agriculture ANNAPOLIS, MD (Sept. 24, 2018) – On September 21, the Maryland Department of Agriculture’s Animal Health program confirmed a positive test for Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in a 12-year-old warmblood gelding stabled at a private farm in Montgomery County. The neurological horse was seen earlier that day at a private veterinary clinic in Loudoun County, Virginia, and was treated as an outpatient before returning home. The Montgomery County farm has been placed on an investigatory hold effective September 21. There are 18 horses on the farm in three barns. The positive gelding is isolated from all horses on the farm. The positive gelding was previously housed with four horses in one barn. The other two barns are more than 30 feet away from the exposed barn. Strict isolation and biosecurity protocols are in place at the exposed barn with body temperatures taken twice daily. There will be no movement on or off the farm. The attending veterinarians administered to this farm will be notified of the hold order and apprised of the procedures taken to control the spread of EHV-1/EHM. Possible links to the positive gelding are actively being investigated. Owners are cautioned to monitor horses at their premises carefully, and should contact their private veterinarians to arrange for Equine Herpesvirus testing if a horse exhibits significant temperature elevations...

Pony Jocks Race for Trip to Abu Dhabi

One lucky pony jockey will get a chance this November to represent the U.S. at the 2018 International Ponies Cup held during the H.H. Sheikha Latifa Bint Mansoor Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Racing Festival in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The festival is the world’s richest Arabian horse racing event featuring nearly $1.4 million in prize money. Pony jockeys, ages 10-14, from Spain, Sweden, France, Belgium, New Zealand, Italy, United Kingdom and the U.S. will race in the International Ponies Cup. The U.S. rider representative will be selected this weekend on September 23 at the High Hopes Steeplechase in Lexington, KY. The jockey with the most points at the High Hopes Steeplechase earns a round trip to Abu Dhabi, including travel funds for the winner’s parents. The following jockeys are nominated for the Abu Dhabi festival: Hannah Belt, Parker Hendriks, Joey DiPierro, Taylor Kingsley, Teddy Davies and Austin Belt. Good luck everyone!

2018 MHC Legislative Wrap-Up

(First appeared in the June 2018 issue of The Equiery) What do you get when you take 90 days + 47 Senators + 141 Delegates + 3,101 Bills?  You get the 2018 Maryland legislative session! The Maryland General Assembly convened on Wed. Jan. 10 and adjourned on Monday, April 9 – three months of nail biting high drama! It is not easy to pass legislation, and barely 28% of this year’s bills made it through the process; the system is intentionally deliberative – and that is a good thing, as it helps to avert capriciously enacted laws. To read more about the outcome of the session, click...
