Welcome to the FEI Sports Forum 2018 Sessions 

Almost 250 delegates from over 50 nations representing many different interests and stakeholder groups in the sport travelled to Lausanne (SUI) for the seventh edition of the FEI Sports Forum. Every year the FEI Sports Forum provides an open platform to the global equestrian community to discuss and debate the future of the sport and to have an influence on the policies and rules which are then put to the vote at the annual FEI General Assembly in November. It is a crucial piece of the FEI’s governance and decision making process, providing a transparent and open forum for discussion. The FEI Sports Forum is open to all and for those unable to attend, a live stream (and replay function) as well as extensive supporting documentation can be found on each of the dedicated session pages.
