    An unexpectedly high infection rate (26%) of tickborne encephalitis virus (TBEV) was identified in a herd of 257 horses of the same breed distributed among 3 federal states in Austria. Young age (p<0.001) and male sex (p = 0,001) were positively associated with infection. Using ELISA test, the horses cross-reacted with West Nile virus, but a confirmatory neutralization test revealed that the antibodies were formed against TBEV.
