We would like to provide you with a brief overview of the situation and measures that have been taken by the FEI, in consultation with the Organising Committee and the Belgian Equestrian Federation, following a confirmed case of EHV-1 in Lier, Belgium.
A horse presenting symptoms on the weekend in Lier was immediately isolated and following confirmation of EHV-1 at the start of the week, the concerned horse and an additional 25 horses deemed to be in-contact were blocked from the FEI database.
The PRs have all been notified, alongside their respective National Federations and National Head Veterinarians (NHVs).
The affected horse and each of the 25 in-contact horses are prevented from attending any FEI events until they have fulfilled certain health requirements which are imposed in order to minimize any potential transmission of the virus, both to their own horses and the wider horse population. The mandatory biosecurity measures include isolation for a minimum of 21 days, taking twice daily rectal temperatures and conducting laboratory testing for EHV-1. Release from isolation can only take place on the advice of a veterinarian and in order to be “un-blocked” and have access to FEI Events, the horses will need to comply with all the return to competition protocols and have the restriction lifted by the FEI Veterinary Department.
We are grateful for the community’s vigilance in all matters of biosecurity and once again reiterate the importance of the Horse Health Requirements and all the preventative measures the community can actively apply in order to minimise the risk of disease transmission.
Should you have any questions regarding this matter, don’t hesitate to contact the Veterinary Department.
The FEI is working closely with the Spanish National Federation, the Spanish Veterinary Authority and the Organising Committee in Oliva following four confirmed cases of EHV-1 at Oliva (ESP). These four horses were among ten horses stabled in the same stable block that developed fever. They were immediately isolated and tested, with four returning a positive test for EHV-1. There have been no reports of any neurological signs in these horses.
All the precautionary measures to minimise the risk of transmission have been swiftly applied, and ALL the horses attending Oliva from 7 February to 22 February - close to 1,000 horses – are now blocked in the FEI database. This includes any horses that may have already left Oliva to compete at other FEI events.
For the 82 horses stabled in the same block as the four horses that tested positive, they are required to stay onsite for at least seven days with measures and testing protocols to be fulfilled prior to leaving the venue, while for the remaining horses, they can leave the venue as soon they have completed a pre-departure veterinary check.
The PRs have all been notified, alongside their respective National Federations.
All the horses that have been blocked in the FEI database are prevented from attending any FEI events until they have fulfilled certain health requirements which are imposed in order to minimize any potential transmission of the virus, both to their own horses and the wider horse population. The mandatory biosecurity measures include isolation for a minimum of 21 days, taking twice daily rectal temperatures and conducting laboratory testing for EHV-1. Release from isolation can only take place on the advice of a veterinarian and in order to be “un-blocked” and have access to FEI Events, the horses will need to comply with all the return to competition protocols and have the restriction lifted by the FEI Veterinary Department.
An FEI Update will be sent tomorrow to the greater equestrian community. We thank you for your cooperation and vigilance in all matters of biosecurity.
Should you have any questions regarding this matter, don’t hesitate to contact the Veterinary Department.

The Guidelines are to be read in conjunction with the FEI Jumping Rules, current version. In case of any discrepancies, the Jumping Rules will prevail.
In addition, all items that are allowed are only allowed under the condition that they are used correctly and do not have a negative impact on horse welfare.
Please share these Guidelines amongst the Jumping Officials and Athletes. The most current version of the Guidelines will always be published on the relevant Rules pages linked above and the FEI Rules App.
