Olympic show jumper Laura Kraut, of Royal Palm Beach, Fla., was mystified when she received notification around Christmas of an administrative infraction from the Fédération Equestre Internationale for the use of lidocaine/hydroxylidocaine.

It was approximately six weeks after the Washington International Horse Show CSI-W, held Oct. 25-30, 2016, in Washington, D.C., where the 12-year-old Dutch Warmblood gelding Andretti S (Corland—Tabelle S, Animo) tested positive for the prohibited substances. Both substances are considered local anaesthetic agents.
