PLEASE NOTE – NEW for this show to limit transmission of Covid-19 risk:  Dressage tests will be scanned and emailed to competitors shortly after they are scored and the class has been placed.  They may also be available to pick up by the score board as done at previous shows.  In addition, ribbons and prizes will “only” be available for pick up at a covered tent area outside of the show office during the show. You will need to “sign out” your awards.  In addition, tests and awards will “not” be mailed to mitigate the contact spread of Covid-19 through the mail.  Thank you for your understanding.

Horse Health Requirements

GMHA requires a negative Coggins and proof of rabies vaccination within 12 months for each horse that comes on the property.  Rabies titers are accepted within one year of event date and must accompany a note from your veterinarian explaining the reason why the vaccine could not be administered.

Please note that the State of Vermont requires a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection within 30 days or Exhibition Permit from the Vermont Agency of Agriculture’s Animal Health office for any horses entering the state. GMHA does not require these documents with entry, but the VT Agency of Agriculture may enforce these regulations at any time.
