Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana are among more than a dozen states participating in a new interstate travel permit for horse events.

Officials say the Equine Interstate Event Permit allows horses and their owners to travel to events in participating states for six months. The permit can be used in lieu of a 30-day certificate of veterinary inspection.

The permit may be obtained from an accredited veterinarian.

Other participating states include Virginia, West Virginia, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and New York.
