Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

We are wanting to move horses from Pta to Stanford in mid-March(i.e. infected zone to protection zone) - they are now > 60 days since their 2nd h/s vaccine. Are their restrictions/quarantine reqts provided they have a health certificate issued within 48 hours of travel? If not, are we placing the horses at Stanford at risk by moving them now?

At the moment there are movement restrictions in place for all horses from Gauteng and so unfortunately your horse will not be able to obtain the necessary Veterinary certificates to enter the protection zone directly. The only option available to you now, is to move the horse from Pretoria to Beaufort West where it will have to do a 3 week stop-over and only thereafter it can move to Stanford. To make arrangements for accommodation in Beaufort West you will need to organise with the State Vet Dr. Jaco Pienaar on 023 414 2154 who will book the horse in and monitor it’s health during the 3 weeks ‘quarantine” and then issue the necessary certificates for it to enter the protection zone.
