The vice president of the FEI has publicly slammed the decision taken today to re-introduce bute into horse sport.
Sven Holmberg addressed the 102 national federations gathered in Copenhagen for the FEI's general assembly just before he was voted to remain chair of the show jumping committee.
"I support 100% the clean sport programme but the progressive list cuts the legs off that," he said to a quietened room.
"It allows treatment of horses in competition, and it will be rejected by the social media."
Mr Holmberg, who is number two to Princess Haya, FEI president, added: "If you thought recent media reaction against rollkur has been tough, just wait to see what happens with this.
