    Respiratory Virus Concern

    Recently a group of horses attended a large horse show now presenting high temperatures and nasal discharge. The vets do NOT believe it is EHV-1. The board has met 6/20 and 6/21 to go over how this will effect the upcoming State Meet. Below is a letter from the board:

    2015 STate Championship Meet Update 6/21/15
    Thank you for your patience. As I am sure you are aware, OHSET board members met last night and again this morning by phone. After much discussion, including consultation from our meet veterinarian, and hearing from our OHSET athletes and their families, the OHSET State Championship Meet will continue with the following plan:

    1. All barns and surrounding areas will be cleaned, sanitized, dried and sanitized a 2nd time. This combined with the heat and the time between events should mitigate risk from any virus that may have been left by previous horse events.

    2. Health checks will be in place before entering the barn area. This means a technician or veterinarian will be taking your horse’s temperature (or watching you take it) and doing a quick visual of your horse looking for signs of respiratory illness.

    3. We are asking that you begin taking your horse’s temperature now, record the temperature daily and throughout the state championship. A spiked fever is often the first sign of a respiratory virus, catching this immediately and isolating, will save it from spreading throughout an area. Here is a link to show you how to take your horse’s temperature – Be prepared, you will be asked for this information each day you are present at the meet.

    4. Three samples from horses at the previous event that showed symptoms of the respiratory virus of concern have been sent to the OSU laboratory for testing first thing Monday morning – we should have results by 12 Noon and we will release those results. Only if the neurological form of EHV-1 exists, which is highly unlikely, would we cancel.

    OHSET is going to great lengths to mitigate risk from the facility. Please do your part. Do not bring a sick horse! Know what a normal temp and normal behavior is for your horse and document it. Don’t share equipment. Don’t go from nose to nose petting horses; keep your distance from other horses while waiting to enter classes. While we are spraying all stalls, bring your own sprayer; spray your stall when you arrive, top to bottom. One part bleach-10 parts water works great.

    We believe this State Championship experience will be as safe as any other event you take your horse to – in many cases safer. However, no one is making you come – make whatever decision you need to make for you, your family, and your horses – we will respect your decision. Please notify your district chair immediately if you choose not to participate.

    Sincerely,
    OHSET State Board of Directors - Click here to download letter.

    Helmet Requirements

    There have been some questions raised about helmet use requirements at "NON" OHSET events. Remember, our rules and insurance govern OHSET events (not OHSET attire). So, helmets are required while riding or driving at:
    » Any OHSET event.
    » At any event raising funds for OHSET.
    » At any event OHSET money was used to pay entry fees for.
    » At any event that a coach or advisor said, "this is going to be our ____ practice;" as in cattle practice, gaming practice, etc.
    » At any event where coaching from an OHSET coach is happening with OHSET athletes. While any ER Doc would tell you to wear your helmet when you ride at all times, OHSET does NOT require it: When you are at an event not covered above, like a gaming play day or Open horse show.

    What athletes are wearing doesn't matter. Use common sense, if there is some question about if it's an OHSET event, error toward wearing helmets. They can wear their garb anywhere, helmets or not.
