The FEI Tribunal has issued a Consent Award in an equine anti-doping case involving a Banned Substance.

In this case, the horse Eryn (FEI ID 105SX59/SUI), tested positive for Flufenamic acid, a banned substance, following samples taken at the CEI1*100 Oberstammheim (SUI) on 20 August, 2022.

The athlete, Melania Vanina (FEI ID 10160936/SUI), admitted the rule violation and accepted the consequences. The horse had been provisionally suspended for two months from the date of notification (26 September 2022 to 25 November 2022).

In its final decision the FEI Tribunal disqualified the horse from the event and imposed an 18-month ineligibility period on the athlete; the provisional suspension she already served shall be credited against the imposed ineligibility period. She was also fined CHF 5,000.
