Equestrian Sport Productions announces that the two horses tested for EHV-1 that were in “FEI Stabling” at Palm Beach International Equestrian Center were found negative. The quarantine on FEI Stabling, which was set by the State of Florida Department of Agriculture in collaboration with Equestrian Sport Productions, has been lifted.

Competition will continue as scheduled for the CSIO classes. All other competition for the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival has been running as scheduled.

The $43,000 Ruby et Violette WEF Challenge Cup Round 8 started at 4 pm today.

The previous biosecurity protocols that were enacted on February 22 have still been in place and will remain until further notice. ESP is asking all equestrians, especially those stabling off PBIEC property, to enact biosecurity protocols and be proactive and responsible for their horses, including daily temperature charts.
