Without quality there is no security, without security there is no quality. The philosophy behind the EQUISTRO clean sport program is that of complete label declaration transparency to allow you making a clear decision regarding the safe use during competitions following the FEI clean sport rules. Every batch of EQUISTRO products containing herbs or herbal extracts are analyzed for environmental contaminants by the internationally renowned laboratory for anti- doping control (Laboratoire de Cours Hippique). To identify if the use of a product during FEI competitions is of risk, we developed a green (OK) respectively red (NOT OK) label that can be found on each EQUISTRO product guiding you to decide if a product can be used or not during competition.
