Drug testing results 2019

Further to the National Pony Society Council’s decision to undertake drug testing at the 2019 Summer Championship Show, the following results can now be released. Six separate animals were randomly selected for testing.

  1. A sample taken as a random test from Mirah Hero at the National Pony Society (NPS) Summer Championship Show showed the presence of meloxicam, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug.

At a meeting of the NPS disciplinary panel on Thursday 26th September, owner Mrs Angela Pallett was suspended from membership of the National Pony Society until 26th September 2020.

Mirah Hero, who won the not exceeding 143cm Mountain and Moorland Working Hunter Pony of the Year qualifier, has been disqualified from his placings there.

Mrs Pallett is also required to pay the dope-testing fee of £ 1376.40 and the penalty fine of £2000.

  1. All other samples returned a negative result.
