The Société Hippique Française contributes to the fight against animal doping by participating in prevention as well as opening its competitions to investigations and checks, and the organised search and seizure either on behalf of the relevant government ministries, the French anti-doping agency or on its own initiative.
Anti-doping measures are featured in the regulations for breeding competitions.
