Drugging of the performance horse has become an epidemic in the industry.
The over indulgence of therapeutic drugs as well as use of illegal and “un-testable” substances are putting our horses and riders at terrible risk.
Despite having drug guidelines, rules and regulations, the USEF does not support them. You do not hold responsible persons accountable, serve minor penalties for infractions, and even allow trainers with MULTIPLE violations to obtain year end awards. It is time for the USEF to step up and enforce the rules currently in place, as well as impose harsher penalties for rule offenders.
As members of USEF, we demand that our governing body oversee our sport in the interest of horsemanship and sportsmanship. Excuse making by repeat offenders will not be tolerated by the masses any longer! Stand up for the welfare of our horses and govern our sport with integrity!!

The USEF has a responsibility to uphold the highest standard of animal welfare; the lack of enforcement of the Drug and Medication rules demonstrates just one area in which they are failing to do so. By signing this petition, you are demanding the USEF take action against trainers, owners, and riders who cheat the system and abuse our horses. Speak up for our
performance horses who cannot speak for themselves.
