The FEI has temporarily blocked all 85 horses that participated in the Global Champions Tour and League in the FEI database, after a horse tested positive for EHV-1 after returning to Belgium. The horse showed no symptoms and the second test showed negative. Despite this the FEI is keeping all 85 horses blocked for the time being.
The first group of horses left the Valencia grounds in the early morning of 11 March. They are in quarantine just outside Paris. The FEI, in consultation with the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture (MAPA), has agreed on a plan to ensure that the remaining horses leave the Valencia site as safely as possible.
