Covid-19 situation : Derogation made by the FEI in relation to Pony Measurement
EXTENSION OF PONY MEASURING DEROGATION
The FEI Board approved a recommendation by the FEI Veterinary Committee to extend a derogation from Article 1085 in the FEI Veterinary Regulations to allow newly registered ponies to compete within Europe without an FEI Pony Interim/Lifetime Measuring Certificate. This By-Law, which originally was set to expire on 30 June 2021 has now been extended to 31 December 2021 as the ongoing pandemic and challenges linked to travel in Europe have affected the organisation of FEI Pony Measuring Sessions.
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.
New Pony Measuring System from 1 January 2020
A new pony measuring system has been introduced which will become effective from 1 January 2020. 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. Details concering these changes can be found below.
1 January 2020 - 31 December 2022 (Transition Period)
