Saddle Horse Report regrets to inform you that the remainder of the Far West Championships will be cancelled due to sickness. It is our hope that all the horses continue to do well. The following release is from Bend Equine and Far West Management.

As of June 20, 2015, 15 cases of respiratory disease at the Far West Horse Show were treated. The signs are: fever, cough and nasal discharge. None of the effected horses show neurological signs, testing is pending. We will disseminate as soon as we know the results. The State Veterinarian has been contacted and we are cooperating. No official quarantines are in place. We are recommending  horses at the show be self quarantined at home for 2 weeks and monitored for fevers. All barns are cooperating. We are making every attempt to make a speedy diagnosis.
