The equestrian world is on its back legs. According to Grandprix, a French equestrian magazine, the American Andrew Kocher uses electric traces. He therefore applies electric shocks to his horses during competitions to make them jump better. The photos do indeed show the mechanical doping. The International Equestrian Federation is aware of the allegations.

Andrew Kocher, 71st in the world rankings, was discredited last year when he went on a competition with a clearly tired horse. The combination then collected 28 staff points and the co-owner of the horse was furious with Kocher’s behavior. A year earlier, another Kocher horse broke his leg and had to put it to sleep.

And now there is a new scandal in which the American rider is central. A whistleblower passed the information on to Grandprix. He claims that Kocher uses a system to deliver electric shocks via a push button in his hand. With his electric tracks he then pushes into the flanks of his horses to make them jump more alert and better. Such a thing is of course strictly forbidden.

The magazine investigated itself and discovered several images in which there appears to be a push button in his right hand. It is raining indignant reactions and the FEI has started an investigation. When asked for a response, Kocher said only “that he loves his horses very much”. He claims to be the victim of someone who deliberately harms his career.

In these photos (© Sportfot et Scoopdyga) that Grandprix posted online, you can see how a thread seems to leave from the hand of Kocher, who then walks under his clothing up to his boots. The device in his hand would be the remote control.
