    Reminder, Olympic Registration & Change of Horse Ownership/Nationality deadline 15 January 2024

    This important deadline of Monday, 15 January 2024, which applies to all (potential) Paris 2024 Olympic Games Horses is approaching.

    Kindly note that further to Article 139 of the FEI General Regulations and Article 606 of the FEI Regulations for Equestrian Events at the Olympic Games Paris 2024:

    • The nationality of the Owner of a Horse competing at Paris 2024 must be the same as the nationality of the Athlete riding the Horse.
    • Only Horses owned by Owner(s) having the same nationality of the Athlete (i.e. not leased horses) can participate at Paris 2024.
    • The Owner of the orse and its nationality must be entered in the FEI Database by 15 January 2024.
    • Where a Horse has multiple Owners of different nationalities, the nationality of the Horse ownership must be declared with the FEI by 15 January 2024 (via the FEI Database) and must match the nation for which the Horse will compete during the Paris 2024 Olympic Games; one of the multiple Owners must have the nationality of the nation for whom the Horse will compete. For example, if there are 3 owners of a Horse and one owner has nationality X, one owner has nationality Y and one owner has nationality Z, the Horse must be registered with one of these nationalities (X or Y or Z) by 15 January 2024 and can only compete for that registered nation at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

     Please refer to the image below of how this is represented on the FEI Database:

    The nationality highlighted in orange is the declared nationality of the ownership and, as of 15 January 2024, the only nation for which the Horse can compete at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

    • If the nationality of the Horse is changed between 15 January 2024 and the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, the Horse will not be eligible to compete at Paris 2024 (the Owners can change provided the nationality of the ownership is maintained).
    • As per the FEI General Regulations, “Owner” means a person or entity having a property interest in whole or in part of one or more horses.
    • The horse may be owned by individual(s) and/or company(ies) and/or by a partnership of individual(s) and/or company(ies).
    • If the Horse is owned by a company, the nationality of the Horse is that of the country where the company is registered. The name of the company and its nationality must be entered in the FEI Database as the Owner of the Horse by 15 January 2024 as mentioned above.
    • When a Horse is owned by a company it is not mandatory to enter the name of an individual (with legal ownership in the company) in the FEI Database prior to 15 January 2024.

    Please kindly note that the 15 January 2024 deadline is applied strictly and the FEI cannot grant exceptions, regardless of the reason for missing the deadline (e.g., technical issues etc). Therefore, we strongly encourage all NFs with a team or individual quota place for Paris 2024 (or who might obtain a quota place via the reallocation process) to update and check the ownerships of all potential Olympic Games Horses via the FEI Database prior to the 15 January 2024 deadline. Please double check this even if you believe that all is in order.
     
    For any questions on updating Horse ownerships on the FEI Database, please contact passport@fei.org
     
    Please kindly note that the same provisions do not apply to the Paralympics, and Horse Owners as well as Nationality changes do not have to follow the same Rules as in the Olympic Games. Please contact the Para Dressage Department if you have any questions.

    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 - www.fei.org/think - 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 www.fei.org/think #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 Sebastien.Goyon@fei.org and alternatively if you are not included in this section, and would like to be featured, please also contact Sebastien.Goyon@fei.org 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 Sebastien.Goyon@fei.org with the relevant delivery address and we will send you a pack of stickers, caps and tote bags with campaign branding. 

    Ambassadors
    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! 

    EMBARGOED
    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.
