Covid-19 situation : Derogation made by the FEI in relation to Pony Measurement
On 18 November 2020, the FEI Board approved the extension of the derogation from Article 1087.2 of the Veterinary Regulations until 30 June 2021. This allows ponies newly registered as of 1 January 2020 to compete without an FEI height certificate.
Subject to Article 20.3 of the FEI Statutes, the FEI Board has approved to temporarily derogate Article 1087.2 of the Veterinary Regulations in order to allow for ponies newly registered as of 1 January 2020 to be able to compete without an FEI height certificate until 31 December 2020. Three events are exempted from the derogation: FEI European Pony Championships; FEI Jumping Nations Cup™ Youth Final; FEI Jumping Ponies Trophy Final.
The FEI Veterinary Regulations 2020 (Article 1087.4) will apply and measurement will be carried out in accordance with Annex IX of the Veterinary Regulations. Where possible, Measuring Sessions for the above three events will be organised for the newly registered ponies in advance of the Events.

A transition period for ponies already registered with the FEI will take place until 31 December 2022, after which the new system will be fully implemented.
