AERA is pleased to advise that all 14 swabbing samples gathered at TQ22 have returned a negative analysis. This refers to controlled medications and banned substances. These are reported on the Equestrian Australia website.
Testing of horses for prohibited substances as listed on the FEI website is important in contributing to horse welfare.
Members are reminded that swabbing may occur at any endurance event and selection of horses to be swabbed is determined by the Chief Steward and the Head Vet.
