Veterinary – Equine Prohibited Substance List
The Board followed the recommendations of the FEI List Group and approved the addition of the following three substances to the Equine Prohibited Substances List:
- Emidonol (anti-ischaemic) – Banned Substance – Emidonol contains meldonium, a banned substance
- Nalmefene (opioid antagonist) – Banned Substance – The substance has sedative effects and no legitimate use in the competition horse.
- Sulfasalazine (disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs) – Controlled Medication – Sulfasalazine metabolises into 5-aminosalicylic acid.
These changes will be sent for consultation to the National Federations shortly and will be presented back to the Board in September for their final approval. The objective is to implement the modifications as of 1 January 2023.

The Board approved the following proposed modifications to the FEI Dressage World Cup™ 2022/2023.
The Organisers of FEI Dressage World Cup™ Qualifiers may opt to offer either the Short Grand Prix or the Grand Prix at each Qualifier. The Grand Prix test will be used at the Final, instead of the Short Grand Prix.
To simplify the qualification process for the Final, the North American League will apply the same points allocation system as is currently used in the Western European League.
