Important Information Regarding Synephrine, Equine Prohibited Banned Substance
From the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI)
The FEI would like to warn the equestrian community regarding synephrine, a substance listed as a Banned Substance (Specified Substance*) on the Equine Prohibited Substances List.
Note: Synephrine is also a banned substance under United States Equestrian Federation Drugs and Medications rules
A high number of samples taken from horses under the Equine Anti-Doping and Controlled Medication Programme have tested positive for the substance. Although investigations into the sources of the positive cases are still ongoing, the FEI would like to warn stakeholders of synephrine which may be found in the horse’s environment and advise on measures that can be taken to prevent a positive finding.
Synephrine is a stimulant which can cause vasoconstriction, an increased heart rate and is used as a weight loss aid.
In certain parts of the world, synephrine can be found in plants such as common rush (Juncus usitatus), Mullumbimby couch (Cyperus brevifolus) and the leaves of citrus trees (e.g. mandarin, orange and lemon). Synephrine has also been detected in Teff grass hay in some countries.
It can also be found as an ingredient of herbal and nutritional supplements, and commonly found in the peel extract of bitter orange (also known as Seville orange) which is used as a flavouring agent.
Measures that can be taken to prevent positive findings include using reputable suppliers of hay, feed and supplements, checking the horse’s environment for plants containing synephrine, and ensuring that any personnel taking supplements or other products containing synephrine wash their hands thoroughly after coming into contact with the substance. Additionally, it is recommended that samples are kept of batches of hay, feed and supplements given to competition horses to enable a thorough investigation to take place should the horse test positive for synephrine.
Further information concerning contamination prevention can be found here.
The FEI urges stakeholders to be vigilant of possible sources of synephrine in the horse’s environment and implement management practices to prevent contamination or inadvertent ingestion of the substance.
* Prohibited Substances that are identified as Specified Substances should not in any way be considered less important or less dangerous than other Prohibited Substances. Rather, they are simply substances which are more likely to have been ingested by Horses for a purpose other than the enhancement of sport performance, for example, through a contaminated food substance.
Crazy - it can be found in your hay!!!! Be careful!
Don't share your weed with your pony!!!
usef.org USEF Equine Drugs and Medications Rules prohibit cannabidiol (CBD) and their metabolites. While hemp does not contain more than 0.3% THC, it does contain CBD. CBD, both natural and synthetic forms, are likely to effect the performance of a horse due to its reported anxiolytic effects.

Survey Participation Request for US Breeders:
"We at Duchy College in Cornwall, UK have put together a survey investigating why people breed foals in the UK and Internationally (for comparative purposes). The survey is totally anonymous and should not take more than 2 minutes to complete.
Conversations had with a variety of people in industry and with charities has highlighted that people in the UK are unaware of the current UK crisis, despite efforts to communicate this. The aim of this study is to investigate breeding practices, why people breed, what choices do they make when selecting mares/stallions, what happens to the foals afterwards. It is clear that the UK need to gain control over equine breeding and limit randomised and unnecessary breeding. Hopefully the findings of this will then support previous research conducted to help support charities and address the equine crisis.
To ensure that we get a good range and number of responses, I am asking a number of different bodies if they would be happy to help us to distribute the survey. I myself will also work hard to reach as many people as possible with direct emails and social media support, however, for the number of responses that we would like we will need some help.
Here is the link to the survey. It should take no longer than 2 minutes to complete and provides different pathways for breeders and non-breeders."

Good look at a current international star when he was young.
How often does one get to watch a World Cup horse as a youngster?
We have been digging in our archive and found something quite unexpected: An old video of Goerklintgårds Dublet, who just competed in the World Cup final with Kasey Perry Glass.
Today he is 16 years old and has also competed at WEG and the Olympic Games, where he and Kasey Perry-Glass have helped the U.S. Team to win silver and bronze, respectively. In Gothenburg Kasey and Dublét placed number four in the Grand Prix and number five in the Grand Prix Freestyle.
Back in 2008, Dublét was just five years old and participated at the young horse championship at Danish Warmblood's stallion licensing in Herning. The video shows the test ride - where Dublét was awarded 9.0 for rideability and 9.5 for potential.
