October, 2004--unfortuately the most recent updates are rather negative.

There have been several findings by the FEI of positive drug testing on medal winners.

These included

--- the Jumping winner from Ireland. (the circumstances were basically that the horse was given a mild sedative one month before the Olympic competition so that the horse could complete some hydrotherapy for a sprained muscle.  The attending vet said it should be out of his system by the time of Olympic competition).

(A second testing proved positive too.)

Further info at the below FEI website.
