Athlete Health & Safety

Welcome to the FEI Medical Committee's information pages, dedicated to key health and safety matters for human Athletes in equestrian sport. The mission of the FEI Medical Committee of the FEI is to advise the FEI Headquarters on matters relating to the health and safety of Athletes and on all matters related to human anti-doping testing.

Knowledge contributes to safety. With these pages the Medical Committee hopes to raise awareness and bring clarity on issues which concern everyone involved in equestrian sport at any competition level. In particular, we strongly recommend that everyone involved in our sport takes the time to read the information on Concussion published in these pages, and familiarize themselves with the Concussion Recognition Tool (CRT5), keeping in mind that where concussion is even suspected expert advice must be sought.

These pages will be updated from time to time with new topics and/or additional information for the existing ones where relevant. If you have queries please feel free to send us an email.

Best regards,
The FEI Medical Committee
