An endurance rider, who was last week banned from competing for 10 months and fined CHF3,000 (£1,745) after his horse tested positive for testosterone, has alluded to suspicious behind-the-scenes activity in endurance racing in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
Danjera Kadhir, ridden by Rashed Mohd Al Seyegh, was sampled by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) at the CEI JY* 119km in Abu Dhabi on 7 February.
Levels of testosterone found in the horse constituted a doping offence. Following the positive result, the horse's groom at the See Al Salam Stable in Dubai was dismissed, and left the country at the end of March.
In his defence, 19-year-old Al Seyegh said that he had, as an amateur rider, relied on the "reputation, skill and care of the trainer and the stable itself that his horse was competing free of prohibited substances".
