The Equine Drugs and Medications Program has worked to protect the welfare of equine athletes and ensure the balance of competition for nearly 50 years. The program utilizes veterinarians and technicians around the country to collect blood and urine samples from horses competing at USEF events. What makes the Equine Drugs and Medications Program truly unique is the comprehensive nature of our program in maintaining all three important components necessary for successful drug testing: the collection of samples, the analysis of samples, and ongoing research to stay current in the enforcement of medication rules.

The USEF strongly encourages its members to review the current Drugs and Medications Rule and to be aware of the published recommendations for treating a horse in competition. These recommendations can be found in the Federation’s Drugs and Medications Guidelines pamphlet and are provided as a link on this website. If you have questions not answered in the pamphlet please contact the Equine Drugs and Medications Program.
