Health and Safety

We are all very proud of our sport, its traditions, and its values. We owe it to ourselves and the horses entrusted to us to ensure that equestrianism flourishes in a doping-free environment.

Whatever your role is in the equestrian world, you know that it must go hand in hand with knowledge of the rules and regulations that govern our sport. They exist to protect the health of our athletes – equine and human – as well as the integrity of our sport.

Please familiarize yourself with the South African Institute for Drug-Free Sports (SAIDS). Their core focus is to tackle doping in sport in order to ensure a culture of ethics and fair play within South Africa. Please go to for information regarding Drug Free Sport.
