UDAF’s Animal Industry would like to announce Utah will now be recognizing Extended Equine Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (EECVI’s or Equine Passports).
These certificates allow horse owners to travel multiple times with one veterinary visit to have their horses examined and Coggins Test updated. Owners may create electronic permits for travel for each trip by logging into their account online to input travel information. Disease outbreaks may restrict these certificates.
Currently one company, Global Vet Link, supports this online platform. Please contact your veterinarian to find out more. Save travels this summer.
We’re pleased to welcome the addition of Robyn Christiansen to the Utah Horse Racing Commission Board. She’s the first female member on the board and she brings a lifetime of horsemanship experience to the board.
Robyn has over fifteen years of experience training race horses and is a member of the Washington County Barrel Racing Association and Southern Utah Barrel Racing Association. She brings her passion and love of horses to her work as an EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association)-certified Equine Specialist with Falcon Ridge Ranch helping young girls overcome adversity.
Robyn believes “there’s nothing better than being on the rail with a horse at 5-6am with the smell of grain and feed in the air” and hopes to see horse racing continue in Southern Utah where she lives near the foot of Zion in Virgin, Utah.
