Horse Care Clinic

The Gordon County Saddle club is scheduled to host their annual Horse Care Day clinic on Saturday, March 1, at the Northwest Georgia Livestock Pavilion from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Annual vaccinations are one of the best things you can do to protect your horse. It’s all about disease prevention and the GCSC wants to help the community keep their horses healthy and free from illness and disease.

The format requires owners to trailer their horses to the livestock pavilion where on-site services will be administered by Countryside Equine Veterinary Services, Inc. Options offered at the clinic will be a Coggins test as well as vaccine shots for Rabies, Strangles, and a West Nile-5 Way combination package. Digital Coggins fee is $30 with vaccination fees ranging from $20 - $70. Some horse owners are able to achieve extra benefits from annual clinics by opting for combination packages for vaccinations which could reduce the overall expense for anyone owning more than one horse.

There will also be a Tack Swap set up by the saddle club members so feel free to stop-n-shop for bargains while your horse is there for vet services.

The NWGA Livestock Pavilion is located one mile south of downtown Calhoun, across from the Northwest Georgia Technical College.
