Red Hills Horse Trials in Tallahassee, Fla., will host the U.S. Eventing Association Equine Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Research Study over the weekend of March 5-7. Horses competing in the CIC*** division will participate in the study. 

The preliminary phase of the Cardiovascular Study took place at the Plantation Field Horse Trials in October. Using extremely sophisticated GE Vivid portable scanners, all CIC*** horses had cardiac ultrasounds and lung scans following their dressage rides on Friday, and nine were fitted with Televet monitoring devices as they were being tacked up for cross-country on Saturday morning. Additionally, all horses in each CIC division and the advanced horse trials division had ECGs at baseline and immediately post cross-country.
