Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Hello there. I would like to know: I just bought a horse just outside of PE, and would like to move him to Gauteng? Will I be able to do that or is it best to wait untill May when it starts cooling down?Although he has been vaccinated against AHS, i dont want to take chances or get into trouble. I dont know what would be the best!?

Due to the fact you are moving your horse from one infected area to another there are no regulations to prevent the move however the serotypes in PE will be different to Gauteng therefore you will put your horse at great risk if moved to Gauteng at this stage. Wait for the outbreak to slow down and by mid May should be safe to move.
