Title: Revisions to Import Regulations for Horses 

We are amending the regulations for the importation of equines. Many of these changes would better align our regulations with international standards and allow us and the equine industry more flexibility. The changes would also add further safeguards that protect against introducing or disseminating pests or diseases of livestock into the United States.
