Strangles in the Equine Community

The Arthur Agricultural Society is aware of the present situation in the equine community concerning strangles. We have consulted a number of expert sources to seek advice and to determine our course of action. At this time the Pony and Western Horse Shows are scheduled to proceed. 
It is very important that all competitors be aware of possible risks associated with contact from horses from other stables.
We ask that if your horse has a cough, nasal discharge, enlarged lymph nodes and/or a temperature, to refrain from moving that horse from the farm. Also, we ask that any horses or ponies that have visited a barn, or have boarded at a barn that has had an active case of strangles in the last 30 days, to remain at home. It is imperative that everyone be considerate of other people’s horses welfare.
We will continue to monitor the situation and will advise you if there is any change to the status of the shows.
