Local horse event causes event to be postponed

A deadly horse disease in California has caused a local horse event to be postponed The Trailapalooza, a fundraising event for the T.R.A.I.L program, will now be occurring at a later time when the disease is under control.

The tentative new date for the event is July 30 and those who have tickets for this weekend, may get refunded. The virus is a new strain of the equine herpes virus known as EHV-1 and has no vaccine or cure.

There have been 13 cases reported in California. All of the cases have been quarantined. One horse in Utah was euthanized after he was suffering from the symptoms.
