Human Anti-Doping

The human anti-doping rules exist to protect the health and welfare of athletes at the same time as protecting the integrity of the sport itself and ensuring a level playing field.

The World Anti-Doping Agency sets out the World Anti-Doping Code; a set of anti-doping rules under which all sports in all countries across the world must operate.  Responsibility for human anti-doping at international level in equestrian sport falls to the FEI, whilst at national level, that responsibility falls to UK Anti-Doping (UKAD).

Changes to the World Anti-Doping Code for 2015 came into effect on 1 January 2015. It is critical that all athletes (competing at both a national and international level) and their support personnel and partners appreciate that the anti-doping system applies to them and ensure that they are fully aware of the changes made in the 2015 Code.
