SHOW Inspections Result in Over 96% Compliance



The SHOW HIO was the affiliating Horse Industry Organization for the Mississippi Charity, held in Jackson, Miss., on March 31-April 2, 2016.  The Designated Qualified Persons inspected 292 entries pre-show in Jackson and 83 horses after their performance.  The inspections yielded a 96.3% compliance on the 292 entries.

SHOW took information and show management disqualified 11 horses.  One horse was disqualified for two violations.  SHOW DQPs found 9 unilateral sensitivity, one scar rule, one foreign substance and one post-show heavy chain.  The USDA took information on 9 of those 11 horses.

The USDA in total took information on 23 horses in Jackson.  The Veterinary Medical Officers (VMOs) took information on six bilateral sensitivity, 14 unilateral sensitivity, three scar rule and one foreign substance.  Three of the horses the USDA took information on were not inspected by SHOW as those horses were removed from the barn by the USDA VMOs and taken to inspection where they were only checked by VMOs.  The USDA will release a report detailing their activity from the Mississippi Charity in the coming weeks.
