In July 2005, an FEI arbitration court suspended Rozier for three months from the show jumping sport after he was disqualified from the Mediterranean Games. The reason was that his horse, Dusty Star, tested positive for dexamethasone, an anti-inflammatory corticosteroid.,[1][2] Rozier was quoted by the Cavadeos magazine explaining that Dusty Star had indeed tested positive for dexamethasone at the June 2005 games in Almeria. He hired an attorney to appeal the suspension, insisting that he was blameless and that there was no rational motive or evidence to the contrary. Moreover, he was convinced that the cause of the contamination had been accidental, either while Dusty Star was in transport or in the common stables at Almeria.[3]

In October 2003, with ten-year-old grey mare Aber Hallo Marionnaud, he won the Grand Prize at the CSI* Barbizon. In November 2003, he achieved 7th place at the CSI* Bois le Roi. In May 2005, he achieved an unprecedented no-fault victory in the CSI** Jump Bost at Fontainebleau.
