The ICAA Spring 2022 Newsletter is available for viewing, downloading, and/or printing. It's located on the Publications > Newsletters page of your navigation tabs.
Learn about Foggy Valley Farms and the fulfillment of their dream to see one of their horses entered in the 2021 ANCER Endurance Championship.
See the short article "Now and Then - Trail Riding" for a look at those of us older folks still out there riding.
We have numerous registration photos to show you this Quarter. There were too many to show them all, but they are all listed!
And see a few of our new foals! Please send us your foal photos and they may be put into the Summer Newsletter.
Our next Quarterly meeting will be held on April 23, 2022 at 12:00 noon EST. This meeting will be attempted using Zoom rather than our usual teleconfernece. Please join us!
Don't forget our unique Horsemanship Program! With all those new foals being born, take advantage of this program to keep track of any time spent with your newborn from birth and throughout his or her life. This is also a great selling point for babies that will be sold, as you can show the buyer how much time was spent, what your youngster excelled in, and the time will go with the horse to the new owner.
The ICAA Official Handbook has been updated for 2022. There are a number of updates, so all members/owners should read through the rules in their entirety, especially for registrations and testing procedures.
IT IS THE MEMBER'S/OWNER'S RESPONSIBILITY TO BE FAMILIAR WITH ALL OF THE RULES AND REGULATIONS.
Starting January 1, 2022, all horses being registered must have a negative IMM test. AGI has had this in their panel test for quite some time now, making their 5-Panel a 6-Panel at no additional charge. We were allowed to add IMM to our Panel package, making it a 6-Panel as well, at no additional charge to our members. For horses that are being registered on their parents/grandparents negative 5-Panel tests, or already have a 5-Panel that does not include IMM, he/she will need to have an individual negative IMM test to be registered. We will be in touch with AGI to see if they will allow us to add that test individually at a discount on our forms. Horses registered with Etalon tests need to be sure IMM is included in their test results.
Several rule changes were made concerning these horses. These changes will take effect January 1, 2022.
