Photo by GCT.Three horses were disqualified from competing in the GCT Grand Prix in Rio this weekend due to hypersensitivity. This is reported by the website chronofhorse.com. The horses decleared unfit to compete were Romanov (ridden by Billy Twomey), All Inclusive NRW (ridden by Denis Lynch) and Vancouver DML (ridden by Simon Delestre).

According to a statement released by the FEI there was no indication of malpractice; "The [thermography] team’s findings were reported to the Ground Jury who requested a re-inspection, which confirmed the positive results for all three horses. The FEI has very clear policies and rules, and where there are welfare concerns the FEI will always act to ensure the protection of our horses and to provide a level playing field for our athletes." More information about hypersensitivity can be found here.
