Steve Guerdat provisional suspension's is lifted

Steve Guerdat has issued a press release stating he is relieved and happy about the FEI decision to lift the provisional suspension against him. At the same time, however, he regrets that due to the current FEI Rules applicable the provisional suspension against his two horses is maintained.

Guerdat and his team will put every effort in the further ongoing process of the FEI investigation to provide as soon as possible the evidence for the mentioned food contamination as the cause of the positive findings, in order to suggest the lifting of the suspensions also for the horses before the FEI Tribunal.

Guerdat had been provisionally suspended after horses on which they were competing tested positive for prohibited substances, including banned substances.

Samples taken at the CSIO5* at La Baule (FRA) on 17 May from the horse Nino des Buissonnets (FEI ID FRA45550), ridden by Steve Guerdat, returned positive for the banned substances Codeine and Oripavine, and the controlled medication substance Morphine.

The horses sample also showed traces of Oripavine, but not at a sufficiently high level for the testing laboratory to declare a positive for the substance.

Edward Gal Has a New Ride

"Hes a horse with incredible potential! Simply perfect for a future star of the dressage arena. Im very happy, said jubilant GLOCK Rider Edward Gal. Because from today he will have a new dressage ace in his stables: GLOCK's Sir Schenkenberg.

This nine-year-old son of Sir Donnerhall I x Larome, bred in Germany, is not merely the possessor of a noble and promising blood-line in his pedigree. This expressive and powerful gelding has also been able to achieve some very good results under his trainer Jochen Vetters (GER).

"Its wonderful. He doesnt have much tournament experience yet, but he does have enormous potential. I am happy and grateful that the Gaston and Kathrin Glock family bought him for me, says Edward Gal proudly regarding the latest addition to GHPC Netherlands. (Glock Horse Performance Center)
