Dear National Federations,

This is to remind that the 2016 Equine Prohibited Substances List became effective on 1 January 2016 and is available in PDF format for download from the FEI Clean Sport website or directly here. The concept of Specified Substances has also been introduced from 1 January 2016.

We invite all National Federations, veterinarians, athletes, grooms, judges or other interested parties to submit their suggestions for consideration by the List Group in preparation of the 2017 List. 

Please use the FEI Prohibited List Suggestions Form and complete all fields, including information regarding the substance, its use, application and specific reasoning for inclusion or change of category as applicable.

Endurance - REMINDER - Participation to 2016 Championships
This is to clarify the FEI rules concerning the participation of Young Riders, Juniors and Children in FEI Endurance Championships.
               
Two articles of the FEI Rules and Regulations are relevant in this regard:
 
A)          Article 124.1 and 124.2 of the FEI General Regulations:
 
1.    Athletes of the appropriate age may take part in FEI Competitions and FEI Championships of more than one (1) Category for Young Riders, Juniors and Pony Riders, but in each Discipline only in one (1) of these FEI Championships in any one (1) calendar year.
 
2.    Athletes may take part in FEI Senior Competitions and Championships from the beginning of the year they reach the age of (eighteen) 18 but they may only take part either in a Junior or a Young Rider or a FEI Championship for Seniors in the same Discipline in any calendar year. Further exceptions regarding age limits are set forth in the Sport Rules of the relevant Disciplines.
 
B)          Article 815.1 of the FEI Endurance Rules:
 
1.  Any person from the year in which he/she reaches his/her 14th birthday and who is duly authorised by his/her National Federation is eligible to take part in all Endurance Rides (CEIs, CEIOs and Championships – Senior and Junior/Young Rider).
 
From the above mentioned articles it shall be concluded that:
 
-      Athletes of the appropriate age (either Young Riders, Juniors or Children) can participate in FEI Endurance Championships ONLY in ONE of these categories (either Young Riders, Juniors or Children) in ONE calendar year;
-      If a Young Rider or a Junior or a Children has participated in a FEI Endurance Championships in any of these categories in one calendar year, they CANNOT participate in other categories in the same year, including the category of Seniors.
-      Article 815.1 of the FEI Endurance Rules ONLY sets an exception to the age limit to participate in FEI Endurance rides, subject to the conditions expressed in such article; but DOES NOT ALLOW to participate in FEI Endurance Championships in more than one category in one calendar year.

Endurance - REMINDER - Different appointment of Officials for CEI's on the same day

REMINDER - Endurance Update of the 09.09.2015

Dear Endurance Officials,

In order to gain experience and speed up the promotion process, some officials cumulate roles during a day for different CEI categories at the same venue.

This kind of practice has its advantages, but also disadvantages. While it’s true that an Official gains experience in different roles, it’s also true that he/she doesn’t take decisions alone as there will be other senior officials involved in the decision making process which is an integral part of the learning process.

Therefore, in order to have a better grasp on the promotions to be approved by the FEI Endurance Department, the FEI Endurance Technical Committee have approved for trial period of six months, that requested promotions be approved only if the PGJ of the higher star ranking event of that day, makes a recommendation for the promotion.

The trial period will run from  1 January to 1 July 2016. Should the trial prove efficient and appropriate then it will be continued, and if not, other measures will be sought for the evaluation of promotions.

Endurance needs better equipped officials, and in order to do achieve this and increase the level of responsibility, a better evaluation system needs to be put in place.

Before the event starts the PGJ will receive a form to be completed and returned signed to the FEI Endurance Department. Without this form duly received at the FEI, no promotion will be possible based on events were officials have officiated in the same day in more than one CEI.

Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the FEI Endurance team.

With kind regards,

Manuel Bandeira de Mello
