FYI, Coggins, aka, EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia) is a viral disease for which there is no vaccine and no cure. If horseflies bite an infected horse and then bite a healthy horse, the disease gets transmitted. For one horse to infect another they must be close enough to each other for a fly to bite both of them. Horses entered into events must have been tested for EIA with a negative result annually and be documented on the official Equine Infectious Anemia Test form (VS Form 10-11). Event officials must review official test papers of all horses entered into an event to ensure that they test negative for EIA.
It is that easy. It is that serious. And it is the law.
