The Eventing categorisation of Athletes has been updated on 1 July 2018 and takes into account MERs obtained between 1 July 2010 and 30 June 2018.
The lists of categorised Athletes are available on the following webpage.
As you may know, this is an election year for the FEI Athlete Representatives in all the FEI disciplines. We have recently reached out to all the eligible athletes and we would like to enlist the community to help us encourage and motivate eligible athletes to come forward and nominate themselves.
The FEI Athlete representative carries a four year term (non-renewable) and is a member of the FEI Discipline Committee and also member of the FEI Athletes Committee with all the other athlete representatives. This position is a really important and vital role providing a voice to your community within the global decision making process.
We have a dedicated page on InsideFEI with all the relevant information around elections.

Eventing Risk Management
Following discussions on Eventing Risk Management at last month’s FEI General Assembly in Montevideo (URU), we have produced a Question & Answer document specifically on this topic which you can read here
Further to the Eventing Committee meeting and the Eventing Risk Management Steering Group, we would like to share with you the very strong recommendations to be implemented by your NFs for Eventing in regard to Risk management:
FRANGIBLE DEVICES: The use of FEI certified frangible devices releasing from horizontal force on all open rails, gates, oxers and oxer corners is strongly recommended for all national and international events. The list of approved devices can be found on the FEI website under Eventing / Risk Management. In addition, the development of new frangible technologies is encouraged at national level.
CROSS COUNTRY COURSE DESIGN GUIDELINES: As per the FEI Update sent 4 May 2017, this document has been updated and can be found on the website under Eventing / Rules. It is also available on the FEI RuleApp (available on Smartphones), regular updates will be made to the document.
VIDEO RECORDING ON CROSS COUNTRY: NFs are strongly encouraged to use video recording on XC and share video footage of all horse falls and near misses with the FEI. The collection and review of footage of horse falls will improve the understanding of the fall mechanism and help on the specific questions i.e. identifying equipment used by riders, learning from connection of falls with certain fences to be addressed as a priority.
MEDICAL MEASURES: It is strongly encouraged that medical suspension and return to play plan be implemented by NFs to allow a better follow-up of athletes having sustained a concussion or a serious injury. Concussion information for health care professionals can be found on our website under here .
In addition, officiating FEI Eventing Technical Delegates are reminded that they need to report back to the FEI on the Monday following the competition, all serious injuries and concussions to allow the FEI to notify the athlete’s and/or horse’s NFs and enable follow-up.
Therefore, the following sections of the TD report should be sent on Monday to allow an optimum follow up:
- Medical section E- Falls/Injuries – List of Athletes (including possible concussion)
- Veterinary section F - Falls/Injuries – List of Horses
- Disciplinary section D-Sanctions, Warnings, Yellow Cards, Penalties and Fines.
FALLS REPORTS: Three additional fields have been added to the fall report in order to collect information on the use of lever bits, martingales and back (thigh) blocks in relation with falls. The updated fall report is published under Officials/Eventing/Forms and Downloads
Finally, please note that the implementation of the modified fence description form to include measurements for the leading edge is not yet available and will be finalized shortly.
Due to a lack of Team participation, the first leg of the 2017 Nations Cup Eventing Series to be organised in Montelibretti (ITA) on 21-23 April 2017 is cancelled.
The Series will start on 18-21 May 2017 in Strzegom (POL). More information available on the following webpage: http://inside.fei.org/fei/events/fei-nations-cup-series/eventing
