The horses were tested at the Australian rider’s stables in France after their return from the Sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera (ESP). On 8 March, Amy Graham had the eight horses she had brought to Spain tested. Six of them tested positive for EHV-1. That is what Graham reports on her social media. Graham reports that all horses are currently not showing any symptoms. They are being monitored well and are getting the best care.
She says: “All our horses have received all vaccinations, including EHV-1. We are very strict about our vaccination programme, to help prevent diseases. Unfortunately, a number of horses have been infected with EHV-1.” Graham has since notified the FFE, FEI, Equestrian Australia and the Sunshine Tour. She also notified owners and her clients, riders who had their horses alongside hers on the Sunshine Tour and other riders who may have had contact with the horses in Spain.
