    Changes to the Endurance Draft Schedules

    The FEI Endurance Department has made key changes to the Draft Schedule, in order to strengthen biosecurity at Endurance Events where national competitions (CENs) take place alongside International Endurance rides (CEIs).

    The changes to the Draft Schedule have been made to ensure that Organising Committees oversee the safety of all horses at CEN/CEI rides.

    The new Draft Schedule can be found on the Endurance Hub on inside.FEI.org. Organising Committee will also be provided with an information leaflet outlining specific requirements for holding CEN/CEI events together, safely.

    We would like to take this opportunity to remind all athletes and support teams that awareness of, and strict adherence to biosecurity protocols, is critical to reducing the risk of ongoing disease transmission, and for the protection of the health of the equine athletes.

    For more information on the FEI’s Biosecurity protocols:

    FEI Endurance European Championships for Young Riders & Juniors Minimum Eligibility Requirements

    Emergency Board Resolution*
    The Board approved the temporary relaxation of Article 836.1.2 of the Endurance Rules for the Elite Young Riders and Juniors category only, giving the Athletes in this category the opportunity to qualify for the FEI Endurance European Championships for Young Riders and Juniors 2022 with one ride in combination instead of the two required originally.
    As this is an Emergency Board Resolution, National Federations have until 18 March 2022 to signify their disapproval by sending an email to Francisco P. Lima, Director Governance & Institutional Affairs.
    A similar amendment had been accepted in 2021 as well. The amended Rules, which are effective immediately, are notified in the Endurance Department Updates and will be updated in the Covid-19 and Endurance Rules hubs shortly.

    FEI Events Standards Stakeholder Survey

    The FEI has created a stakeholders survey to ensure the maintenance and continued improvement, of an already existing high standard, at FEI Events. This survey will help the FEI better understand the expectations of its key stakeholders, and the information collected will help guide the future approach of the FEI to ensuring that these are met.

    The survey launches today and will be open until Monday 14 February 2022. We encourage everyone to take part in this survey, which should take no more than 10 minutes, and thank you in advance for your time.

    New FEI Endurance Calendar Measures

    Following stakeholder consultation and a recommendation from the FEI Endurance Calendar Task Force, the FEI Board has approved the following resolutions with regards to the FEI Endurance World Championship scheduled for 22 May 2021 in Pisa (ITA), having been postponed from its original date of 6 September 2020 due to Covid-19.  

    • Extension of the Nominations Entries Deadline from 9 April 2021 until 21 April 2021 (note the qualification dates have not changed and the deadline remains 5 April 2021).
    • Increase the number of Nominated Entries for Horses and Athletes from 10 Athletes and 14 Horses to 15 Athletes and 15 Horses (i.e. 15 combinations). This condition is a modification of the FEI General Regulations (Article 116.2.2(i)) hence it shall be considered as an Emergency Board Resolution*.

    These resolutions are based on a decision to maintain the Championship on 22 May 2021 following a request by the Italian National Federation and the Organiser to postpone the Championship due to the uncertain evolution of Covid-19 and the impact of EHV-1 in Europe particularly. Although two alternative dates were proposed - 10 July 2021 and 25 September 2021 - the FEI Endurance Calendar Task Force unanimously agreed to recommend to the Board to maintain the initial date of 22 May 2021 for the Championship subject to the conditions above that would provide National Federations more opportunities to select their best and most fit combinations.
    The Endurance Calendar Task Force also highlighted to the FEI Board that the new proposed dates would have an impact on the FEI Endurance Pan American Championship for Seniors & Young Riders from 28 – 29 July 2021; the FEI Endurance European Championship from 6 to 11 September; and the FEI Endurance World Championship for Young Horses from 15 to 19 September.
    In addition, they noted there were a total of 44 qualified NFs, with 584 qualified combinations from all FEI Regional Groups for the Championship and moving the Championship to July or September 2021 would require National Federations to adapt their planned selection process and adjust their training programmes, as well as repercussions on available horsepower for the different Championships mentioned above.
    As is customary, these resolutions will be included on the FEI Covid-19 Resolutions & Decisions hub for Endurance.
