EHV-1 at IPC

Outbreak of virus in Florida

On Sunday 4 April, it came to light that there is a positive case of Equine Herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) at the Winter Equestrian Festival (WEF) at International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC), also currently hosting the 2021 US Open. EHV-1 is a contagious virus, spread by direct horse-to-horse contact or by indirect surface contamination; IPC is working closely with the United States Polo Association (USPA), polo community and Palm Beach Equine Clinic to protect all the horses at IPC. The positive case at WEF has been isolated, but with the large numbers of horses at close quarters, this is still a worrying time, IPC commented, “This heightens our shared responsibility to take specific measures that will help keep each horse safe from the virus. We can work towards this by implementing two strategies: biosecurity and vaccination protocols. IPC is working closely with the competing teams and their vets to confirm all vaccinations are up to date, and are strongly encouraged to abide by specific protocols at their barns for the safety of their horses.”
