    Eventing - Olympic Minimum Elegibility Requirements

    Further to queries received from different National Federations, the interpretation of the terms “different events” included in Article 626.1 of the FEI Regulations for Equestrian Events at the Olympic Games has been clarified as follows.
    All Athletes/Horses who take part in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games Eventing Competitions, and subject to the provisions of paragraphs 2 and 3 below, must achieve the following minimum eligibility requirements (MERs) as a combination by obtaining “FEI qualifying results” at different events in the following level of Competition which take place from 1 January 2023 until (and including) 24 June 2024):
    (i) One (1) qualifying result at a CCI5*-L;
    or (ii) One (1) qualifying result in a CCI4*-L AND 1 qualifying result in a CCI4*-S
    (iii) Plus one (1) qualifying result in a CCI4*-S or 4*L or 5*L to be obtained after 1 January 2024 and on or before 24 June 2024 (the “Confirmation Result”)
    The legal interpretation of “Event” according to the FEI General regulations prevails: A complete meeting, "Show", "Championship" or "Games". While Olympic MERs may therefore be achieved at any events included in the list of OG MER events available here, we strongly encourage that they are obtained at different venues.
    The intention of this provision is to optimise the preparation of Athletes/Horse combinations for the Olympic Cross-Country.
    As a reminder, the preparation and qualification of all athletes and horses is the responsibility of the NFs.
    Should you have any questions, please contact Catrin Norinder with a copy to Nitia Lazzari.

    Veterinary - New documents available

    Kindly note that new Veterinary documents are now available on the FEI Paris 2024 Hub.

    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.

    FEI Para Equestrian Updates

    Para Equestrian Forum 2024

    The FEI Para Dressage department would like to invite applications from National Federations who would be interested in hosting the 2024 Para Equestrian Forum. The Para Equestrian Technical Committee has suggested that the Forum should be held in early April 2024 to fit in with the competition calendar. Please see attached the guidelines for hosting the FEI Para Equestrian Forum, and please send all applications to the Para Dressage department by 30 November. 

    Visual Impairment (VI) Classifications in 2024

    Due to the increased numbers of Athletes attending VI Classifications in 2023, the FEI would like to invite expressions of interest from NFs to host a VI Classification alongside a CPEDI so that more FEI VI Classification events are available to Athletes. The FEI would contribute to a portion of the expenses for running the event, and would help to liaise with IBSA to secure Classifiers.

    Please contact the Para Dressage department by 16 November for more information if your NF would be interested to host a VI Classification in 2024.

    Classification/Compensating Aids Requests Refresher – respecting deadlines

    The increase of Athletes attending Classification in 2023 shows the positive growth of Para Equestrian. We would like to remind National Federations that in 2024 the deadlines for Classification requests, Medical Review Requests and Compensating Aids Requests must be strictly adhered to as per the rules. As a reminder, Classification and Medical Review requests must be received at least six weeks in advance of the Classification event, and Compensating Aids requests at least two weeks in advance of the Event.

    All forms can be found on the FEI Classification Documentation page. For any questions please contact the Para Dressage department. 

    Qualification Rules 2024

    The Overall Para Dressage Qualification Criteria for 2024 has been published on the FEI Para Dressage Rules page. These criteria include clarification of the requirements for an Athlete to complete a CPEDI2* prior to starting at a CPEDI3*.

    Para Equestrian Classification research

    The research project led by Sarah Jane Hobbs, from the University of Central Lancashire, in collaboration with Hartpury University, is now completed with the publication of the final manuscript “Towards an Evidence-Based Classification System for Para Dressage: Associations between Impairment and Performance Measures” . The team, carrying out the initial three-year project, have produced four main publications listed below and several background research projects, which are all published on the FEI Classification Research webpage.

    Year 3

    Animals | Free Full-Text | Towards an Evidence-Based Classification System for Para Dressage: Associations between Impairment and Performance Measures (mdpi.com) Complete manuscript

    Published 31 August 2023

     

    Executive Summary

    Published 11 September 2023

     

    The next steps for the FEI will be to engage and work closely with an external consultant with extensive expertise in classification across sports to undertake a two-pronged review of:

    • The research conclusions and how these can be translated into improved Classification practices for Para Equestrian.
    • The current FEI Para Equestrian Classification System with a best-practice view, to determine where improvements are required to the system, for example, the athlete evaluation process.

    Recommendations from this review will be considered by the FEI Para Equestrian Technical Committee, FEI Classification Working Group and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC). Consultation with our Para equestrian community will also be undertaken to ensure we hear from all relevant stakeholders in regards to advances to the current Classification system including an implementation plan with consideration of the FEI Rules Revision cycle and Paralympic cycle, and inclusion of a transitional period for Athletes and National Federations.

    We are looking for a Classification expert with relevant experience reviewing and transitioning classification systems, preferably with experience in other sports classification systems. We invite you to put forward any contacts that you may have in the domain, and please send any proposals to the Para Dressage Department by 15 October at the latest.

    Please contact the Para Dressage Department for any questions or further information.
