Virtually every country requires an isolation period before the horses are allowed to be transported, apart from America and a few other countries. During this isolation period, also called pre-export quarantine (PEQ), the horses are under veterinary supervision. The isolation period starts after an inspection by the NVWA of the isolation space and the animals. The duration depends on the requirements of the exporting country. For example, the horses from China or South Africa must remain in solitary confinement for 30 days.
HSI has 44 stables available at our location in Meterik, including 15 new stables of 300 x 350 centimetres, including a luxury washing area and a solarium. These stables are not all in one area. HSI has divided the stables into compartments so that several countries can be put into isolation. Only authorised stable personnel have access to these areas. The quarantine department has a separate access to the riding arena, so you can continue to train your horse.
HSI takes the isolation period very seriously. The regulations and conditions are accurately complied with. In addition, the animals receive excellent care.
