In a letter to the national federations posted on Eurodressage.com, Princess Haya has asked for a written vote to allow the “20 October List” to be implemented in April 2010 in place of the “Progressive List.”
The October 20 Equine Prohibited Substances list does not allow any use of NSAID, unlike the Progressive List.
In the letter, Princess Haya assured officials that the Progressive List debate and a new policy choice would be on the 2010 General Assembly agenda. The letter pledged to provide necessary scientific thought and research about NSAID use and implications.
Princess Haya recognized logistical issues and legal concerns surrounding the Progressive List rule change. She stated that the FEI must be conscious of other equestrian and welfare organizations concerns. She also confirmed that a silent majority of national federations who support the Progressive List are not willing to speak out.
