Shocking Video Emerges of Horse Being Injected During Endurance Event
To add to the troubles besetting endurance, a video has emerged of a horse being injected during an international event in Bahrain at the weekend.
Making a change from the constant news of horse deaths is perhaps the only positive thing to be said about the video which clearly shows an against the rules injection taking place during the H.M. The King's Cup CEI*** 160km in Bahrain on March 2, 2019. The horse is then shown being presented at a vet gate.
Although horses may be treated by the official vet at any competition, regardless of dicipline, usually such treatment prevents the horse from completing any more of the competition thereafter.
The video, supplied to Grand Prix, was also sent to endurance watchdog group Clean Endurance, who have indentified the horse concerned and informed the FEI who are investigating the incident.
