HUMAN ANTI DOPING ADVICE FROM HORSE SPORT IRELAND

TWENTY MINUTES OF YOUR TIME NOW COULD AVOID A FOUR YEAR BAN FROM ALL COMPETITIVE SPORT

Remember ALL members of ALL affiliates are liable to testing IN COMPETITION. Only those International competitors nominated by FEI are liable to testing out of competition.

Heretofore, riders were only tested at International events in Ireland. However, from 2021 ANY COMPETITOR MAY BE TESTED AT NATIONAL OR LOCAL LEVEL OF EVENT.

Attached please find a summary of prohibited substances.  NB CHANGES FOR 2021 – IN PARTICULAR THE ADDITION OF TRAMADOL  AND  CODEINE, {both commonly used for pain relief, eg: Zydol, Solpadol, Solpadeine} and intra articular or joint injections of steroids.  Caffeine and Nicotine levels will also be monitored.   However riders are patients too and prohibited substances may be used if a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) is granted.  Please click HERE for TUE information.

Please take time to read Anti Doping data on HSI website especially the Sport Ireland Anti-Doping E-Learning programme – twenty minutes of your time well spent. Remember a positive test can give you a four year ban from all competitive sport. Sport Ireland hope to have 2021 Wallet Cards available soon for distribution.

I am happy to deal with any of your queries and can be contacted by email Dr Mary Flannery
