Spring MET III cancelled following the EHV-1 outbreak in Valencia

Following the recent Equine Herpes Virus outbreak – EHV-1 neurological form – at the CES Valencia Spring Tour, the organising committee of the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour in Oliva Nova, Spain, has decided to cancel Spring MET III that was scheduled to run from 9-28th of March 2021. This decision has been made for the safety and the welfare of the horses.

We have been deeply distressed by the recent updates coming from Valencia, where several horses are fighting for their lives and where some have already lost the battle. Like all of you, we feel deeply for the horses that have contracted this horrible virus. Our thoughts go out to everyone affected by the outbreak, and to all those who do everything they can to save the lives of the horses.
