We present the first results from experimental studies of the electron hose instability in the plasma-wakefield acceleration experiments at FACET. Theory and PIC simulations of an electron beam as it travels through a plasma indicate that hosing may lead to a significant distortion of the transverse phase space. The FACET dump line is equipped with a Cherenkov light based spectrometer which can resolve transverse motion as a function of beam energy. We compare the predictions from simulations and theory to the experimental results obtained.
