The IPHC is working very
closely with the Kirkwood facility regarding the recent outbreaks of EHV-1.
The facility will have been empty for 11 days prior to the start of our
show. They have disinfected once and will be doing so again before we
arrive. They have not had any incidences, but are being proactive for the
best interest of our show.
However, they are going
to REQUIRE HEALTH CERTIFICATES issued May 19th or later in order to enter
the show grounds. If you do not have them, you will not be allowed in. You
will have the option to go obtain them, but cannot enter the facility until
you can present a certificate.
Kirkwood is working very
closely with their vet and the State vet to monitor the situations around
the Midwest. At this time they feel very comfortable with the precautions
they are taking for their horses, and for our show.

Membership Please be sure to read the Show Rules and Regulations posted as
Membership Rules in the Membership tab, which were revised November,
2012. The main change and point of interest is number 5 under
Requirements for Year-End Awards. Please note that to be eligible
for a year-end award, a horse must be shown in the class to a
minimum of one-half of the judges offered PLUS must show at a
minimum of three weekend shows. In other words, showing at only the
Memorial Day Classic and State Show will not qualify for a year-end
award. This change was implemented to prevent an exhibitor from
coming only to IPHC's two biggest shows and being able to receive a
year-end award without supporting at least one smaller show. If you
have questions, please feel free to contact one of the Board
Please remember to pay your membership fees as soon as possible.
This will assure you receive all Iowa points for year-end awards,
along with continued receipt of the Roundup and voting eligibility
at the general membership meeting. Do it now and be able to forget
about it for the rest of the year! If you have a website, remember
that paid IPHC members get a link FREE on the IPHC website during
the calendar year of payment. What better way to promote your
stallion, horses, farm or business?!?
