    A half a dozen horses tested positive and were chucked out!

    I would stop feeding it well before 7 days before your competition just to be sure.
    First, no I did not follow the Olympics and second was it proven the paprika was the cause?

    Like everyone else mentioned, wait about a week/week1/2

    What was rude about what I said? All that I said was I have never heard of it and she should maybe research it a bit before jumping to conclusions. Maybe a few other people here should also stop and think before being snotty with someone.

    You voiced your opinion, they voiced theirs. There wasn't anything snotty about it. I would assume your not being snotty with that comment either?

    Anyways, I agree, anything that I use on my show pony (that can be linked to making your drug test positive) I stop using at least a month or so before, but I get really paranoid about that sort of stuff lol.

    Not sure exactly what the correlation between capsaisin and paprika are. Capsaisin is a banned substance according to USEF (although I think the Olympics uses FEI rules? Irregardless, I believe illegal with both) but paprika is actually NOT on USEF's list.
    The people who were in trouble in the olympics tested positive with capsaisin, which is often used in several brands of topical anti-inflammatories, such as Equi-Block, which is very popular amongst jumpers. Equi-block claims that they do not test positive. One of the riders (can't remember who) said that he uses it regularly on his horse's back, has for several competitions, has been tested and never came out positive before. What some officials were worried about is that riders were using it on their horse's legs to make them more sensitive (it makes your skin either tingle or burn depending on the strength) and thus more careful jumping.

    If you're worried about using paprika i'd look into the rule book or call the steward and ask. Every governing group has its own rules.

    I think once I run out of it I'm just going to use my Grand Coat/flax seed stuff and coco soya. Just so I don't have to worry about it.

    I have no idea about the poppy seeds. I never heard of that.
    Interesting. Thank you :)
