Any horse, mule, donkey, zebra, or other equid 6 months of age or older that is imported into South Carolina, moving within the state to a public assembly, or at public assembly must have a negative EIA (Coggins) test within the previous 12 months. Public assembly is defined as the gathering of two or more horses that are owned by two or more different individuals. Public assemblies include, but are not limited to, boarding stables and pastures, shows, exhibitions, fairs, rodeos, racetracks, trail rides, and any other public or private gathering of equines.
Any horse, mule, donkey, zebra, or other equid less than six months is recommended to have proof of a negative Coggins test (some sale barns will require it). Proof of age may be required.
We recommend all horses that undergo a change of ownership to have a report of a negative EIA test within the previous 12 months.
