Endurance GB will be undergoing a restructure of its office support and as a result we are sad to report that Sarah Travers, current Executive Officer of Endurance GB, will no longer be working for the Society. Nicki Thorne, Chairman of Endurance GB, commented that ‘Sarah has been extremely enthusiastic in her approach with the society and we all wish her well for the future’. 


During her time with Endurance GB, Sarah has no doubt become a familiar point of contact for many members and said that she ‘has really enjoyed her time at Endurance GB and is planning to volunteer in the future’, we look forward to seeing her out and about at next year’s events.

Statement on RegumateStatement on Regumate - (Published:19 October 2018)

In September the BHA issued a notice advising trainers to be cautious when using products containing altrenogest, which is the active ingredient in Regumate. This advice was issued as a result of reports from an Australian laboratory that trace levels of an anabolic steroid had been detected in products containing altrenogest.

The use of Regumate in mares has been permitted under FEI regulations for a number of years and altrenogest is not on the Equine Prohibited Substances List. The use of Regumate in mares is, therefore, not currently prohibited.

The BEF has sought clarification from the FEI and the advice received is that it remains permissible to use Oral Regumate in mares in accordance with the manufacturer’s directions, until such time as the FEI confirms that this policy should change.

However, please note that any injectable altrenogest products should not be used.

Concerns over anabolic steroids in RegumateConcerns over anabolic steroids in Regumate - (Published:03 October 2018)

Please see the attached memo from the British Horseracing Authority concerning the use of Regumate. This has been prompted by some anabolic steroid positives in Australian racing. Testing of Regumate in the UK has revealed the presence of an anabolic steroid, trendione. 

Although trendione is not itself on the FEI prohibited substance list it is a metabolite of the banned substance trenbolone. Therefore, until further clarification from the FEI, the use of Regumate in competing horses should be viewed as extremely risky. We are waiting to hear further from the BEF on this matter.
