FEI update: Horse confirmed positive for EHV-1 after return from the Sunshine Tour

Tuesday, 09 March 2021
EHV-1 (neurological form)

The FEI has received notification of a confirmed positive for EHV-1 in a horse in Belgium after its return from the Sunshine Tour in Vejer de la Frontera, Spain. The Sunshine Tour was cancelled by the FEI with immediate effect on March 5th. 

An update from the FEI, released tonight, reads as follows:

"This horse, which was placed in isolation immediately on return to its home stables in Belgium, was a close in-contact to the first horse that developed a fever on the Vejer de la Frontera venue. This first horse was put into isolation on 26 February, developed neurological signs on 4 March and, although it tested negative to EHV-1, that result was inconclusive. A second horse on the venue developed neurological signs on 5 March and was also transferred to the isolation stables.

As a result of the confirmed positive in Belgium, all horses that have participated in the Spanish Sunshine Tour since 9 February 2021 have been blocked in the FEI Database. All affected athletes will be advised of the necessary measures that must be implemented prior to return to competition."
