Equestrian sport derives its credibility and public acceptance from the concept of fair play, the idea that the best athlete or team should win fairly and squarely, having competed under equitable conditions and under rules that are fair and applied evenly with true competence. To be valid and meaningful, competition results must be achieved on a level playing field.
Doping and the inappropriate use of normal medications present a serious threat to the integrity and reputation of our sport, because they give athletes an unfair advantage and threaten the welfare of horses. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the entire equine community: athletes, veterinarians, grooms, managers, coaches, owners, officials, and our National Federations to join together to help combat doping and the inappropriate use of medications through better education and increased vigilance.
Equestrian sport is a unique case of a sport that involves animal and human athletes working together as a team. The FEI Clean Sport Campaign is a coordinated effort at many levels to provide all our stakeholders with the information and tools necessary to address the issue of doping and inappropriate medication usage head on. We hope the campaign will also serve as a call to action to all to reaffirm their commitment to fair play and horse welfare. The concept of Clean Sport is about much more than a new list of prohibited substances and a new rulebook. It’s also about better judgment, professionalisation of the officials that regulate our sport and consistency of decisions. It’s a complete package and its success depends on everyone playing their part to maintain that level playing field.
You will find on this site all you need to know about the FEI Rules on doping and medication, as well as information about the Equine Prohibited Substances List. The List contains individually-named substances that are either Banned or Controlled at FEI Events and is subject to annual review. The Equine Prohibited Substances List, approved at the FEI General Assembly each year, is available now for review online.
Fair-play in equestrian sport also means that there is adherence to the measures needed for human athlete doping control, as in any major sport. This is why the FEI Clean Sport website also provides equestrian human atheltes with the knowledge and tools to manage their own obligations under the FEI's Human Anti-Doping Rules. By clicking on the button below you can access the relevant rules, Prohibited List as well as detailed information to help you ensure that you have complied to all requirements applicable to the Human athlete.
