Question Traveling... Receipt for Vaccinations?

My first time traveling with a horse is coming up this August. We are crossing state lines and keeping her at horse motels over night.
Is a receipt for vaccinations legitimate proof of vaccination to the stables/ police officers if we get pulled over? Or does she need paperwork aside from the receipt?

Your coggins test results should come in a paper certificate type thing. Most all of the states require it.
Ask your vet for a health certificate. He should be able to print you off something. That will cover your vaccination verification.
I think Kentucky is one of the hardest states as far as what you have to have. Fortunately you are passing through mostly easy states. California might be a tough one so best to have everything you need.

Your vet will need to perform an in person physical exam on the horse. S/he will run through the normal course of a physical (vitals, listen to lungs, gut, etc) to ensure the horse is healthy for travel.

If they choose to list the current vaccinations on the health cert, they can - most don't. You should have the original health cert and original coggins in the truck with you.

If you know you are stopping at horse hotels, you can provide them with a copy of the paperwork. I have a release for our horse hotel customers to sign.

I found this list of states and what they require. Each one is different so best to check each state you will be traveling through. The Legal Equine Edge - Transporting Across State Lines
