Hi,

I searched the USEF website and could not find a list of meds that are forbidden in competition. I am wondering if anitibiotics are allowed for FEI or regular horse trial competition. If not, how long do they have to be off the antibiotics prior to competition? Specifically asking regarding SMZ's and metaflumazon (i think that is what it is for the 2nd drug).

FEI and USEF rules are vastly different. It's all in the guidelines, though, and the email "help" contact is very good.
