Attention competitors!!

All competitors will need to print and fill out the Horse Event Participation Declaration Form and bring it with you to the show office when you arrive to the show.

Strangles Virus:

The Chapter is asking that any competitor whose horse has been exposed to the strangles virus in the last 60 days obtain a 72-hour health certificate before coming to Franktown Meadows for this show, whether or not their horse or horses are exhibiting symptoms.

Please do not take the risk of inadvertently exposign the other horses at the show or boarders at Franktown Meadows to the virus. If there is any question in your mind on whether your horse could be carrying the virus, please consult your veterinarian.
