    Sport Nationality Change Applications

    In order to streamline and enhance the processing of sport nationality change by the FEI, a new Application Form for Athletes aged over 18 years, is now available on Nationality. When filled out accurately, this Application Form will enable the FEI to process requests more efficiently by:

    • Reducing the email correspondence regarding the Sport Nationality application,
    • Allowing the applying National Federation to identify and provide from the outset the necessary supporting documents; and
    • Allowing the FEI to identify all regulatory implications of the sport nationality change for the Athlete and inform the applying National Federation accordingly.

    The Sport Nationality Form includes detailed instructions. It can be filled out and signed electronically. It can also be printed, filled in by hand, and scanned before sharing with the FEI. 

    Kindly ensure that going forward all Sport Nationality applications for Athletes aged over 18 years will be submitted to the FEI using this form. Incomplete, unsigned and/or undocumented applications will not be processed by the FEI.

    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.
