Pre-Arrival Testing

Pre-Arrival Testing (PAT)

Horses competing in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games and Paralympic Games can be tested for FEI Equine Prohibited Substances through the Pre-Arrival Testing service (PAT). Testing will be carried out by LCH in Paris (FRA). The PAT service is offered on a voluntary basis through the National Federations and for a limited time only before the scheduled arrival dates of horses at the Games’ stables.
The PAT service is available exclusively to the equine athletes listed by the National Federation and entered in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games and Paralympics from the day after the closing date for Nominated Entries.
