The horse came from the Dixie Stampede in Sevierville, TN according to my vet. Dixie Stampede and the UT vet hospital are currently quarantined. Although the Dixie Stampede is pretty much a closed herd with minimal travel, a group of them may have recently traveled to an exhibition or something. The state vet's office is investigating to determine those details.
The best way to avoid exposure is to keep your horses at home and avoid contact with other horses. Not what folks want to hear with fall trail riding time here!
I'd read on another bb a week or so ago that there were five horses in the Dixie Stampede herd that have EHV but didn't hear they were in remission. That's good news.
I also did a quick google and it appears it's easily spread, airborne, contact, clothing. Scary stuff imo if you ride with a large group of people, as you don't know where they've been and what they've been in close proximity to.
