“As the deadlines approach for the Paint Horse Congress,” per Congress Chair Casey West, “we wanted to update potential exhibitors. The deadline to reserve and pay for stalls without penalty is July 15th. However, we are waiving the $25 early arrival fee and anyone who has already paid this fee will be issued a refund.”
SHOW TO 8, PAY FOR 4
To take advantage of the special entry fee, pre-enter on or before July 15th and show in the Open Color Class. SPB’s must show in a SPB Halter Class.

Just a heads up that Vesicular Stomatitis is continuing to spread. There are new affected premises and new affected Counties in Texas, New Mexico, and Colorado.
The most current situation report is here: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_health/downloads/animal_diseases/vsv/sitrep-7-08-19.pdf
For more information about the disease and past outbreaks go here: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/animal-disease-information/cattle-disease-information/vesicular-stomatitis-info
Please be aware that horses and livestock traveling to affected Counties will need to be examined by a veterinarian and have a CVI within five days of returning to Oklahoma. Horses and livestock being imported into Oklahoma must meet the same requirements.
