Protocol and Rules Updates

Drug Rules Understood

Equine sports are subject to drug rules and drug testing; Dressage and Eventing are no exception. Both horses and human athletes are subject to drug restrictions. In the US and Canada, rules governing drug administration are written and enforced by FEI, USEF, AQHA, Equine Canada, and some state organizations. The rules can be discipline specific or breed specific.

The rules can seem complicated - this article will try to help increase your awareness and help you know where to go to get information and help. Read More >
