New rule changes effectively immediately at EC sanctioned competitions

If you are competing at Equine Canada sanctioned competitions, please be advised of rule changes prohibiting the practice of using injectable magnesium, gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) or hydroxy-gamma butyric acid (hydroxyl-GABA).

These rule revisions, which have been adopted and are effective immediately, empower EC licensed officials to take action if they personally witness the injection or attempted injection of a horse. A refusal by a person to comply with a request from an EC licensed official to provide the injection equipment in and of itself constitutes a violation that would result in a violation consistent with the sanction for a Class 2 substance on the EC Drug Classification Scheme.
