Welcome by the FEI President and the FEI Secretary General

Dear Board Members, National Federation Delegates, Memorandum of Understanding Holders,

Dear Guests and Friends,


On behalf of the FEI, we are delighted to share with you the Official Invitation and Programme for the FEI Hybrid General Assembly 2023, which will take place in historic and vibrant Mexico City (MEX).


Two years ago, we hosted the first ever hybrid edition of the General Assembly. It provided an opportunity for most of us to meet in-person post the Covid-19 pandemic, while providing delegates who were unable to attend in person the opportunity to participate online. The 2022 edition functioned once again in a hybrid format and this year we will continue to do so to best accommodate all participants.


The General Assembly is a great opportunity to evaluate where we stand globally as a sport, while allowing us to look ahead and create our roadmap for the future together. With six disciplines and 136 National Member Federations, we are a diverse and inclusive community and it is crucial we have a solid platform to discuss and decide on matters at the heart of our sport.


Approval of the proposed modifications to the FEI Rules, many of which this year put emphasis on horse welfare, along with updates on preparations for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will be among the key items on the General Assembly’s agenda.


The annexes for the General Assembly as well as agendas, presentations and other relevant documentation are available publicly and will be published online in due course, in line with the transparency principle defined by the Association of Sports Olympic International Federation (ASOIF).


By navigating through the different tabs provided on this hub, you will have access to all logistical information for the General Assembly. The General Assembly will be livestreamed and available on Replay, and these links can also be accessed in the hub.  


Please keep in mind that all National Federations, whether attending in-person or virtually, are required to register for the General Assembly so that they can exercise their statutory rights (voting) and take part in discussions.


It will be a busy week and at the end of all the meetings, we will bring the General Assembly to a close with the traditional celebration of our heroes at the FEI Awards Gala presented by Longines in a stunning location.


We would like to take this opportunity to thank our Mexican hosts for their generous welcome. We are looking forward to yet another productive FEI General Assembly and a fabulous FEI Awards Gala 2023 in Mexico City. 


Should you have any questions in the meantime, please don’t hesitate to contact the FEI Organising Team.
