    Exclamation Paprika - banned by USEF

    Hello

    I am putting this on a seperate thread, I know that we have one thread going on paprika at the moment but this information may get overlooked by someone feeding it at the moment

    http://www.chevalinternational.com/page2.html

    Below is an extract taken from Cheval International website

    ATTENTION ALL SHOW HORSE OWNERS. DRUG TESTING IS GETTING STRICTER BY THE MINUTE, SO BE SURE YOU CHECK ALL INGREDIENTS WITH YOUR GOVERNING AGENCY TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE IN FULL COMPLIANCE WHEN YOU SHOW. USEF NOW INDICATES CELERY SEED (NOT IN ANY OF OUR FORMULAS) AND PAPRIKA ARE "ILLEGAL" SO WE OFFER A SHOW HORSE FORMULA OF ALL OUT COAT ENHANCERS WITHOUT PAPRIKA OR CELERY SEED - AT THE SAME GREAT PRICE. JUST INDICATE SHOW HORSE FORMULA WHEN ORDERING. LAME-A-WAY (a.k.a. SHARK LEGS ALSO COMES IN SHOW HORSE FORMULA - WITHOUT THE FORBIDDEN SUBSTANCES OF GINGER OR HAWTHORNE). ALSO USEF HAS TOLD US THAT WITH CHEVAL'S SMALL AMOUNTS OF ANY OF THESE INGREDIENTS, IF YOU ARE USING THE REGULAR FORMULA, YOU CAN PULL YOUR HORSE OFF A WEEK PRIOR TO SHOWING AND SHOULD BE OK!

    *Paprika (a member of the pepper family) may naturally contain a low level of Capsaicin, a substance that is banned by USEF for use in competition. They recommend that some simply as a precaution, remove products containing paprika from the diet approximately 7-10 days prior to competition.

    Just thought you guys should know

    Wow that's so unusual. Sooner or later horses will have to turn into breathenarians because of what they're not allowed to eat LOL. :lol: (I'm just kidding though but the laws are getting stricter and rightly so)

    The Paprika is thought to promote a healthy coat and make it shiny. Whether or not it works is often a matter of debate but thats theoretically what its used for.

    Hmmmmmm.....so I wonder what the "show horse" formula of BAK has instead of paprika to achieve the same results....very interesting!
    Madness takes its toll.
    Please have exact change.
