Latest Recommendations from Eventing Committee

Further to the Eventing Committee meeting and the Eventing Risk Management Steering Group, we would like to share with you the very strong recommendations to be implemented by your NFs for Eventing in regard to Risk management:

FRANGIBLE DEVICES: The use of FEI certified frangible devices releasing from horizontal force on all open rails, gates, oxers and oxer corners is strongly recommended for all national and international events. The list of approved devices can be found on the FEI website under Eventing / Risk Management. In addition, the development of new frangible technologies is encouraged at national level.

CROSS COUNTRY COURSE DESIGN GUIDELINES: As per the FEI Update sent 4 May 2017, this document has been updated and can be found on the website under Eventing / Rules. It is also available on the FEI RuleApp (available on Smartphones), regular updates will be made to the document.

VIDEO RECORDING ON CROSS COUNTRY: NFs are strongly encouraged to use video recording on XC and share video footage of all horse falls and near misses with the FEI. The collection and review of footage of horse falls will improve the understanding of the fall mechanism and help on the specific questions i.e. identifying equipment used by riders, learning from connection of falls with certain fences to be addressed as a priority.

MEDICAL MEASURES: It is strongly encouraged that medical suspension and return to play plan be implemented by NFs to allow a better follow-up of athletes having sustained a concussion or a serious injury. Concussion information for health care professionals can be found on our website under here .

In addition, officiating FEI Eventing Technical Delegates are reminded that they need to report back to the FEI on the Monday following the competition, all serious injuries and concussions to allow the FEI to notify the athlete’s and/or horse’s NFs and enable follow-up.

Therefore, the following sections of the TD report should be sent on Monday to allow an optimum follow up:   

-      Medical section E- Falls/Injuries – List of Athletes (including possible concussion)

-      Veterinary section F - Falls/Injuries – List of Horses

-      Disciplinary section  D-Sanctions, Warnings, Yellow Cards, Penalties and Fines.

FALLS REPORTS: Three additional fields have been added to the fall report in order to collect information on the use of lever bits, martingales and back (thigh) blocks in relation with falls. The updated fall report is published under Officials/Eventing/Forms and Downloads

Finally, please note that the implementation of the modified fence description form to include measurements for the leading edge is not yet available and will be finalized shortly.
