New doping rules
From ANIMAL PEOPLE, January/February 2010:
COPENHAGEN–New International Equestrian Federation
anti-doping rules took effect on January 1, 2010.
Federation president Princess Haya of Jordan commissioned a
review of the doping rules after six horses tested positive for
banned drugs at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, four years after three
gold medalists were stripped of their awards for illegal doping at
the 2004 Athens Olympics.
The first major test of the new rules is expected to come at
the 2010 World Equestrian Games in Lexington, Kentucky.
