Oh then I don't know what to tell you as I know nothing about SA. Maybe ask the shipping companies as they are in the business of wanting money.

Wow, you are facing an uphill battle and though the ban is going to be revisited in May, it may not be lifted. I found a decent article on the subject for anyone who is interested:
Exporting Horses

We grow too soon old, and too late smart.

Yes unfortunately I am! Have been to that website, looked at that exact page, and spoken to the lady too.

Why does this have to be so impossible!

Because containing AHS is a huge priority, if it spreads to the UK/EU-or here in the US for that matter it would be catastrophic. I am so sorry you and your horse are caught in the middle.

Im sorry but your being advised all kinds of nonsense, I lived in Olifantsfontein just outside of Midrand for 7 years and I traveled with my horse & competed Internationally. Your horse can be vaccinated against AHS SAEA - Athletes and Horses - Inoculations Against African Horse Sickness more information on this and other inoculations here.

You could facebook search this Windward Equestrian they are small but well connected yard, if they don't know all about it they will know someone who does.

Regards

The difference is that your horse was traveling to places...not being exported from a place under quarantine/banned export status. This is a small but critical difference.

The banned export status will be lifted in the next few weeks even days if it hasnt happened already. The first thing to do is speak to Kenilworth Quarantine Station they are based in Western Cape and so your horse will have to be transported from where he is to there. There is no better authority on horse exports in South Africa than the guys are Kenilworth, you can ask for all the advice in the world on here and to be honest the only ones with the answers you need are at Kenilworth. S.A are very unlucky, they were given the all clear status on exports and within a month a case of AHS was reported (some might say a convenient coincidence) obviously there are breeders in europe that really don't want cheap African horses being exported... The country ahd to wait a clear 12 months after the last reported case prior ot beign granted the all clear again, that 12 months passed a couple of weeks ago and the country is now entering their lowest risk time for AHS, winter which improve sthe chances of the OIE lifting the current ban. The problem also arose a few months ago with a diagnosis of CEM, CEM is a venereal bacterial disease of equines. It can be transmitted by artificial insemination techniques and natural cover. South Africa was declared free of the disease in April 2011 and 1 month later surprise, surprise the OIE pulled their CEM free status due to the discovery of a case of CEM again. So now all stallions have also to be screened for CEM, the case of CEM isnt enough alone to have export limitations in place but when the country already has limitations due to AHS then this obviously doesnt help. I know it doesnt sound like good news but the veterinary association have submitted reports concerning the arradication of CEM, the 12 months since last case of AHS is imminent if not passed and so things are actually looking good for you exporting your horse. Like I said earlier, call or email Kenilworth.. they will know everything. I hope you and your horse are reunited soon.

You might also talk to my friend Deirdre, at Clononeen Gypsy Cobs in the UK. She is an absolute expert in importing/exporting, all breeds and the world over. I believe she was the first Gypsy breeder, to export Gypsies to S. Africa. She is also a team member of the Ladies Polo team in the UK and has shipped polo ponies to and from, S. America. Her own horse boxes/transporters, are palaces on wheels. Drop her an email and tell her your thoughts/problems. You can tell her I sent you, if you like.
