New tools to manage the sport
A new tool called Equestrian Sport Educative Events (ESEE) is now available on the FEI Solidarity Programme to help developing NFs to grow and manage the FEI Disciplines in a sustainable manner. It is made to EDUCATE national Officials (Judges, CDs, etc.) & national Coaches to develop a national sport structure including competitions, to the BENEFIT of the ATHLETES (youth and seniors). It can be applied to all FEI disciplines.

Connecting with Youth - Summer Camp in Bulgaria
The first youth camp ever organised for young riders from the Balkan region featuring 19 dedicated riders from 5 countries: Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Serbia & Turkey.
"The level of development in equestrian sport in Bulgaria and the Balkans over recent years demonstrates the true dedication of a highly dynamic and professional Federation to play a keen role in the growth of equestrian sport. The organisation of the FEI World Jumping and Dressage Challenges, FEI Courses for Coaches and camps such as these give me every confidence that equestrian sport is in safe hands here. The resulting 83% increase in international events in Bulgaria over the last 5 years only serves to reward the hard work of all those involved."
Hard work, determination and support from FEI Solidarity helped these up and coming athletes and teams participate at major events in 2014 and 2015
