Facilitation of the international movement of competition horses: Outcomes of a successful Public-Private Partnership

The horse sports industry has expanded significantly over the last decade. More and more international equestrian sports and racing events are taking place. They involve temporary movements of horses between countries that do not necessarily have the
same health status, posing a potential risk of disease spread.

To address and manage this risk efficiently while facilitating the movement of competition horses, WOAH and the International Horse Sports Confederation (IHSC) have joined forces.
