    Campaign launch "Think OutsideThe Box  "

    We are pleased to inform you that the FEI will be launching a new campaign tomorrow called “Think Outside The Box” to raise awareness and provide solutions to minimise the risk of potential contamination and Equine Anti-Doping and Medication Controlled Regulations (EADMCR) violations, as well as potential health risks for horses, arising from certain behaviours and actions or lack-of in and around the stables.

    Initially created to attract the attention of the key stakeholders concerned by the EADMCRs ie riders, grooms and support personnel, and in a bid to inform and educate around contamination – often an unfortunate situation that could be avoided if the right precautions had been taken - the campaign was expanded to include general best-practice recommendations to make it relevant to the wider equestrian community and promote safety and wellbeing for horses, regardless of their competition status.

    A joint collaboration between the Education and Legal departments at the FEI, with very engaging and “shareable” content (you will be surprised by the video), we encourage all our stakeholders to join us in the promotion of this campaign so we can reach as many people as possible, and hopefully reduce contamination cases emanating from ill-informed behaviour, as well as providing the best practice recommendations to avoid contamination for horses out of competition and any potential health threats this might entail. 

    Dedicated Hub & Digital Assets To Download – English, French & Spanish
    We have created a dedicated portal - - available in three languages (English, French and Spanish) and have an array of digital assets which you can download and use on all your channels to proactively promote the campaign to you members, fans and followers. Download assets directly on #FEIThinkOutsideTheBox 

    They Support Us
    You will see on the portal, we have a section – They Support Us – where we have included the logos of all our Official Stakeholders, so please do let us know if you would like to be removed from this section, simply by contacting and alternatively if you are not included in this section, and would like to be featured, please also contact and let him know you would like to be added to that section with your logo.   

    Campaign Merchandising
    And finally, we have produced some bright and impactful merchandising for this campaign, which is available to all our “supporters” so please don’t to hesitate contact with the relevant delivery address and we will send you a pack of stickers, caps and tote bags with campaign branding. 

    We are also on the lookout for ambassadors – so if you would like to nominate/introduce us to potential ambassadors for the campaign, we are open to suggestions! 

    Please note all of the above is EMBARGOED until Friday 17 November 20:00 CET when the campaign is officially launched. We kindly ask that you refrain from posting any information, assets, visual, etc until 16:00 on Friday unless reposting from FEI channels.

    FEI Driving Youth Cup

    We are pleased to introduce a significant development in the world of FEI Driving—the FEI Driving Youth Cup. This project aims to address the evolving needs of young FEI Driving Athletes and open new opportunities for their growth in the sport.

    Over the past years, we have been witnessing the quality and skills of young Driving athletes substantially evolve. With the FEI Driving European Championships for Youth taking place every two years, and being accessible only to European athletes, it was important for us to come up with an annual event for young athletes from all around the world, to further promote the global expansion of our sport.

    With a format that is easily manageable, cost and time effective for organisers, athletes and all stakeholders involved, the FEI Driving Youth Cup is not just an additional competition; it's a project with immense potential with positive ramifications for the future of Driving.

    This new competition format provides an opportunity to explore new facets of the Driving discipline and to move Single Horse/Pony classes to the forefront. After first having introduced this project at the FEI Driving Forum in April 2023, where it received positive feedback from the community, the FEI Board officially approved the creation of the FEI Driving Youth Cup during its spring in-person meeting this year. In order to now prepare the official launch in 2025 of this event, the FEI will organise several test events during the course of 2024.

    We invite all organisers interested in finding out more, or in being a part of this adventure by hosting a leg of the FEI Driving Youth Cup, to consult the presentation and the Rules here and to contact Aude Barby for further questions.

    We look forward to working together with all interested, to provide further opportunities and support to our young FEI Driving athletes.
