[RC] SE-Interstate Equine Passport - Roger Rittenhouse

For the SE riders
I just received the TN EQUINE PASSPORT cards for our horse/mule.

This program will permit the registered horses to be moved across state lines without the need to obtain a current health certificate.
The cost is ZERO - finally something from the government that costs NOTHING ( other then taxes).

I choose to use the digital pictures for positive ID. You can use a chip but you must carry a reader. The state of LA will not accept picture ID format - you must use a chip. ( Dont go to LA? :) )

The card looks like a drivers license.
Pictures are on the back

You MUST keep a logged list of all the movements with the passported horses. They have a form. When the permit expires (6 months), you send in the log.

This is a great program for the endurance riders in the SE. You can travel to all the rides without seeing your vet or paying for a health cert. Two per year is all that is required.
I always thought that was a real pain to get to the vet and get the cert. Not all vets will send you a $20 cert 'on your word' the horse is OK.

You do not at this time need to be part of the NAIS system. TN has left that program as voluntary. (Since the Feds have left the EQUINE part as Voluntary-- for now)

The program now includes KY and VA. This change made the permit a good deal.

The states in the program are: AL AR FL GA LA MS NC SC WV KY VA.

It all online in TN > http://tennessee.gov/agriculture/regulate/animals/passport.html

Each state has their own web site with program applications.

We hope to travel a bit this year going to assorted horse camps in the SE.
