The International Movement of Horses Committee is the permanent liaison committee of the International Federation of Horseracing Authorities (IFHA), tasked with improving communication between countries that hold international races and making recommendations about equine health issues that restrict trade.

Membership of the Committee is open to veterinarians nominated by horseracing authorities and other specialists. Government Veterinary Officers are also invited to attend. The Committee meets annually in Hong Kong, an event which provides the opportunity for discussions on infectious disease issues and networking, as well as the formation of task forces to address issues that constrain international horse movements.
