Why is Coggins mandatory?

It keeps your horse/pony safe and protects other horses & ponies! The Coggins tests for EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia), an infectious and potentially fatal viral disease for which there is no vaccine or treatment.

If a horsefly bites 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.

Prior to or on day of show, owners entering horses/ponies into a VBHSA show must produce a current hard copy of the official Equine Infectious Anemia Test form (VS Form 10-11) as having been tested within the previous 12 months for EIA with a negative result. The hard copy can periodically be requested by the State Veterinarians Office for proof of Coggins..

The official EIA test form is reviewed and kept on file by the Show Secretary and/or Show Manager to ensure all entered horses have test negative for EIA. It is the owners responsibility to ensure a hard copy of the form on file with the VBHSA is up-to-date.

All horses assembled at a show, fair, race meet, or other such function, or participating in any activity on properties where horses belonging to different owners may come into contact with each other in Virginia, must be accompanied by a report of an official negative test for equine infectious anemia.
