May 28-29 ACTHA ride postponed due to EVH-1 outbreak

The ACTHA competitive trail challenge scheduled for May 28-29, 2011 at Windcross Conservancy’s Heritage Ranch in Buffalo Gap, SD, has been postponed and rescheduled to Sept. 3-4, 2011.

Event organizers emphasized their commitment to the protection and preservation of the herd project horses they are responsible for. Reports May 18 of EVH-1 outbreaks in surrounding states was brought to organizers’ attention. After much soul searching, contact with various associations, state veterinarians and our private veterinarian, Windcross Conservancy decided to postpone the event, as the virus is not treatable with vaccines and a number of horses have already been euthanized in other states.

A number of riders scheduled to compete are from out of state; one rider is currently competing in one of the “hot” states.
