Endurance - FEI Coach Education Programme
In the framework of the FEI Coach Education programme, which was initiated in 2003, the first course for Endurance Tutors was organised in Istanbul, Turkey, on 16-22 March 2016. 
A total of five Tutors selected by the Endurance Committee gathered for an intense seven days of preparation and education. The Tutors were experts in the discipline of Endurance: Valerie Kanavy (USA), Penny Toft (AUS), Natalya Dolgikh (KAZ), Shanie Bosch-Fourie (NAM) and Brian Dunn (IRL).  
Liam Moggan from Coaching Ireland, led this group of Tutors during the seven-day course. He has been a pillar in the development of the Coach Education Programme of the FEI and has been in called upon to educate Tutors in Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Vaulting and now Endurance. 
The first three days of the session were dedicated to the introduction of the Coach Education System and methodology of the adult learning process. The Turkish National Federation is currently looking at ways to develop the discipline of Endurance in the country, and on an International level offered to host a Pilot course for coaches as part of the Tutors’ session.
During the 4 days that followed, ten National coaches took part in a pilot course which gave the Tutors the opportunity to put into practice the methodology learned over the previous days.
With Endurance being the FEI’s second largest discipline after Jumping in terms of the number of competitions staged annually, it was only a matter of time before the discipline joined the FEI Coach Education programme. 
The FEI Endurance Department, in collaboration with the FEI Solidarity Department with a group of experts composed of Roderick Fisher (GBR), Ignasi Casas Vaque (ESP) and Bénédicte Emond (FRA), worked on the content of the course in terms of technical specificities of the discipline, designing the content of the Level 1 course for coaches, following the model of the programme which aims to provide coaches with the ability to prepare riders for the first level of competition (in this case CEI1*), emphasizing skills, developing participation and ensuring enjoyment.

The FEI Solidarity Department and FEI Endurance Department would like to thank all of the people involved in the creation of the FEI Coach Education Endurance module and extend a special thank you to the Turkish National Federation for hosting the Tutors course and the Pilot course.

Endurance - Horse Document Management
Dear National Federations,
Following the communication you received on the 19th November regarding Horse Document Management, we are pleased to inform you that this new interface is now live on the FEI Database.
When a new FEI Passport or FEI Recognition Card is issued, or any modification is made to an existing FEI document, the FEI Database will request that the necessary documents are uploaded before the horse in question can be entered for a FEI event. The reason behind this procedure is that, in order to preserve the integrity of our sport, it is most important to have the copy of horses identification documents in the FEI Database.
Further information and details on the necessary pages that need to be uploaded in certain situations can be found here.
Your National Federation Members in charge of FEI horse documents have been contacted with the necessary information and links to online guidelines.
If you have any questions regarding this important development, please do not hesitate to contact us: passport@fei.org
