    Coggins and Health Cert frequently go together but are not the same thing. If you have a current Coggins, then ask the vet to come out and do a Health Cert for your horse, or if a bunch of you are going to the same show, the BO will probably schedule it so you can all split the farm call.

    Here in Kentucky all horses traveling within the state are required to have a health certificate and Coggins, even if you are just taking your horse down the road to your friend's farm. State Ag./USDA workers will stop you and check, especially if there is an outbreak of something going on elsewhere in the US. Its as simple as your vet coming out and taking your horse's temperature and a general "once over."

    A health certificate is a paper stating your horse is healthy. You have to have them to cross state borders, but where I live, we can cross the North Dakota border and stay there for 72 hours without needing a health certificate. But any show across state lines and if they know you are out of state they will require or may ask for a health certificate.

    A lot of the vets around here will literally glance at your horse and sign it. Around here its $20-30, and last 30 days.
