    EVENTING - Clarification 2019 Eventing rules Art 549.2 – Run-out – Missing a flag

    Further to the request of Athletes, Organisers and Officials, the Eventing Committee has agreed to the following clarification to ensure consistency of the application of the 2019 Eventing rules Art 549.2 – Run-out – Missing a flag as follows:

    For reference: 2019 Eventing Rules Art 549.2      Run out - missing a flag :

    a) Run-Out: A Horse is considered to have run out (20 penalties) if, having been presented at an element or obstacle on the course, it avoids it in such a way that the body of the Horse (head, neck, shoulders and pelvis – legs are not included) fail to pass between the extremities of the element or obstacle as originally flagged. Continuing on course without representing will incur elimination.

    b) Missing a flag: A Horse is considered to have missed a flag (15 penalties) if the Horse jumps the dimension of the obstacle and the majority of the Horse’s body (as defined above) passes through the flags. This means that some part of the body is not inside the flags (e.g. one shoulder, or one shoulder and part of one hip).

    c) The Horse will have successfully negotiated the fence, if the body of the Horse (as defined above) has passed the fence as originally flagged (i.e. the body but not all the legs are inside the flag is considered clear).”

    The Eventing Committee has agreed that the following considerations must be taken into account when judging the run-out /flag situation on Cross Country:

    1.    The Fence Judge is responsible for taking a decision as to a penalty to be awarded to the combination

    2.    Knocking down a flag will not entail an automatic penalty

    3.    The Ground Jury will only review any specific requests for clarification made by a Fence Judge or an Athlete after the penalty has been awarded

    4.    Video reviews should be done immediately by the TD and/or GJ if there is a doubt, not left until after the XC so scores can be published and updated during competition

    5.    When reviewing a video, it must be easy to decide if the horse is inside the flags, if it is necessary to review several times, the decision should be made in favour of the rider.

    6.    As always if there is a doubt give the benefit of the doubt to the competitor.

    7.    15 penalties on Cross Country will maintain the MER on Cross Country
