My vet doesn't have to come out again if he has seen the horse with in the last 30 days, he just post-dates the health certif. to his last visit. However, if he hasn't been out w/in 30 days, he has to come out again. It is pretty much required by most states if you are traveling out of state of oner a certain number of mile. (# of miles varies upon state) Here in Colorado they require a "branding inspection" if you are traveling over 75 miles or out of state. It basically is a very detailed description of your horses, to help prevent theft. They hold the right to pull over any trailer and inspect the horse and remove him if not properly certified! Good Luck on your ride
