on a slightly saner note. For tansport from the UK to america and canada tests for:
EIA (via Coggins Test), glanders, dourine and piroplasmosis, also a test for CEM for mares and stallions.
I would advise that you get these done before you travel them out there as the tests will e redone when they get onto american/canadian soil and I have no idea what happens if they test positive when in the states (although there is ony one outcome for EIA).
The horse is required to have a physical exam by a vet between 24 and 48 hours before take off.
They have to spend several days (I think it is 3 working days for geldings in america, 7 day in canada & longer in both places for mares and stallions due to CEM testing) in quarenteen whilst the tests are done.
RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
