|What is the role of the Secretary General? (FEI Statutes Article 28)|
The Secretary General, Ms Sabrina Ibáñez, is the FEI’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and reports to the President, and through the President to the Executive Board, the Bureau and the General Assembly. The Secretary General may attend any meeting of any FEI Body ex officio, without a vote.
The Secretary General is responsible for leading and managing FEI Headquarters, including financial and commercial issues, and ensuring that policies and decisions of the Bureau and General Assembly are implemented. Please see the FEI Headquarters section of My FEI Guide for more information.

Members of the FEI Athletes’ Committee are elected by their peers.
FEI Solidarity Committee members are appointed by the FEI President and ratified by the General Assembly.
For the FEI Audit & Compliance Committee, the procedure is the same as above, except that members are elected by the General Assembly.

FEI Sports Forum
What is the FEI Sports Forum?
The Sports Forum has since 2012 brought together individuals and organisations from the international equestrian community for a two- or three-day programme of themed sessions and round tables. The topics are related to the future of equestrian sport and may be discipline-specific or more general. Participants are encouraged to voice their opinions and ask questions and the event is characterised by its lively, passionate debates.
Why is it important?
The Sports Forum is an important and inclusive stage in the FEI’s decision-making process. For the FEI, it is a valuable opportunity to hear the perspectives of different stakeholders (athletes, sponsors, riders’ clubs, horse owners, event organisers, specialised press, etc.). Input on subjects such as proposed rule changes is taken into account before voting takes place at the General Assembly a few months later. So, for attendees, the Sports Forum is a unique opportunity to play a direct role in FEI governance. Attendees who are not directly involved in equestrian sport but who, as speakers, share their relevant experience and insight, also make a valuable contribution to the discussions.
Is the FEI Sports Forum open to the general public?
Yes. For members of the public who are unable to attend but wish to be involved, detailed documents on the subjects discussed are published on our website. In addition, input is welcome via an online forum that is open to comments and questions from the public before, during and after the Sports Forum.
When and where does the FEI Sports Forum take place?
It takes place every April or May in Lausanne, Switzerland.

In practice, a clash occurs between two higher level Events when one is added to the FEI Calendar after the deadline and is on the same date as another on the same continent (worldwide for CSI5* star events).
In case of a clash, the Events concerned will have to give their approval. If they refuse the clash, they must explain their reasons and the final decision lies with the FEI Secretary General.
No clash rules apply for lower level Events. A lower level Event can be added to the Calendar at any time but no later than 4 weeks before it starts.
Allocation is, in principle, decided by the FEI Bureau during its annual spring meeting, on the advice of the FEI and the relevant Technical Committee.
Full information about the available FEI-Named Events, deadlines, bidders, allocation timeline, official applications forms, bid guides, etc., can be found in the bidding section of the FEI website: http://www.fei.org/fei/events/bidding-process-information.
