British Dressage has received notification via the British Equestrian Federation of the outcome of a positive controlled medication test at the Winter Championships at Hartpury College, Gloucestershire, on 15 April 2018. 

The horse, Keystone Rhia, competing in the Elementary Freestyle Silver, tested positive for Flunixin. The person responsible, Sally Green, who owns and rides the horse, accepted the findings and the £500 in fines and £750 in costs. 

This resulted in elimination of the combination from the classes this horse competed in at the Winter Championships and Area Festival Championships (Elementary Silver Area Festival Championship, Elementary Silver, Novice Freestyle Silver and Elementary Freestyle Silver) and the loss of any rewards from those classes.
