No, horses do not remain carriers or reservoirs of the virus. The Virus is long gone and all that remains are the antibodies against the disease which means the horse has a very strong resistance to future clinical manifestations of AHS. It does not mean he will not be infected again but having survived once and depending on the strain ( unless strain 5) he should pull though easily.
