Did you know that ponies may be tested during Pony Measuring Sessions?

 

In order for ponies to be allowed to take part in FEI Pony Competitions they need to be of regulatory height. Height does matter!
 
All ponies presented at FEI Pony Measuring Sessions may be subject to sampling under the FEI’s Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Regulations (EADCMRs) from the time of their arrival at the Pony Measuring Station until their departure.
 
Ponies are considered as being “In-Competition” while at FEI Pony Measuring Sessions and must therefore be free from Prohibited Substances. A positive test may lead to the invalidation of the result of the relevant pony measurement. Testing is in place in order to protect the welfare of the ponies and prevent the use of Prohibited Substances and/or Methods in an attempt to try and affect the measuring result.
