State Equine Transport Requirements Available Online

You're planning to take your horse to a big event several hundred miles away. To reach your destination, you might travel through states you've never before visited. Since equine transportation regulations vary from state to state, how will you know if you are in compliance each time you cross a state line? To help equestrians keep up with these requirements, USRider is providing up-to-date information regarding equine transportation on a state-by-state basis on its Web site.

The site is available to anyone traveling with horses, both USRider members and nonmembers. It includes safety bulletins, equine trailer safety tips, a pre-trip checklist, and more.

The new information available on the Web site provides the details on all the states' equine transportation regulations, including Certificate of Veterinary Inspection, EIA and vesicular stomatitis requirements, as well as contact information for each state veterinarian.

If you have a Smartphone, you can also access the information through USRider's mobile Web site.

Designed for those who travel with horses, USRider provides emergency roadside assistance and towing services, along with other travel-related benefits geared especially toward horse owners, such as towing up to 100 miles, plus roadside repairs for tow vehicles and trailers with horses, emergency stabling, and veterinary referrals.
