Acclimitizing to heat and humidity

We were lucky this June with really nice temperature/humidity but now that is at an end. Please remember that it takes time for your horse to get used to working in these conditions. Heat related illness is much more likely if you ignore this fact. Human elite athletes allow 7-14 days to get used to increases in heat and humidity before resuming intense training.

USDA office in Annapolis to close 6/29

This means that international health certificates (including to Canada) will have to be signed at the Richmond office. You will have to allow two additional days for overnight in each direction or make a 6-8 hr round trip to Richmond if time is critical.
