THE FEI CODE OF CONDUCT


FOR THE WELFARE OF THE HORSE


The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) expects all those involved in international equestrian sport to adhere to the FEI’s Code of Conduct and to acknowledge and accept that at all times the welfare of the horse must be paramount and must never be subordinated to competitive or commercial influences.


  1. At all stages during the preparation and training of competition horses, welfare must take precedence over all other demands. This includes good horse management, training methods, farriery and tack, and transportation.


  1. Horses and competitors must be fit, competent and in good health before they are allowed to compete. This encompasses medication use, surgical procedures that threaten welfare or safety, pregnancy in mares and the misuse of aids.


  1. Events must not prejudice horse welfare. This involves paying careful attention to the competition areas, ground surfaces, weather conditions, stabling, site safety and fitness of the horse for onward travel after the event.


  1. Every effort must be made to ensure that horses receive proper attention after they have competed and that they are treated humanely when their competition careers are over. This covers proper veterinary care, competition injuries, euthanasia and retirement.


  1. The FEI urges all involved with the sport to attain the highest levels of education in their areas of expertise.


A full copy of this Code can be obtained from the Fédération Equestre Internationale, Avenue Mon-Repos 24, CH-1005 Lausanne, Switzerland. Telephone: +41 21 310 47 47. The Code is available in English & French. The Code is also available on the FEI’s website: www.horsesport.org.

(see website www.horsesport.org)


VETERINARY EXAMINATIONS, HORSE INSPECTIONS & PASSPORT CONTROLS


These will be carried out in accordance with the “Veterinary Regulations”, Art. 1011 & the discipline rules.


“General Regulations”, 21st Edition, effective 1st January 2005 will apply:


Art. 139.1

Every horse entered for any competition at CNs or ClMs (see Appendix D) in a foreign country (see GRs 141.2), and all horses entered for other Cls, ClOs, Championships, Regional and Olympic Games, whether at home or in foreign countries (see GRs 141.2), must have an official, valid FEI Passport, or a National Passport approved by the FEI and accompanied by an FEI Recognition Card and, when applicable, an FEI registration number, as a means of identification and to establish ownership.


Art. 139.2

Horses taking part in CNs and ClMs (see Appendix D) in their country of residence are not required to have such a passport as is mentioned in paragraph 1. All such horses must be properly registered and identifiable and, unless there is no national requirement for equine influenza vaccination in the host country and in the country of origin all horses must have a valid vaccination certificate.


EQUINE INFLUENZA VACCINATION, VET. REGS. ANNEX VII (except events taking place in NZL & AUS)


All horses and ponies for which an FEI Passport, or a National Passport approved by the FEI has been issued, must have the vaccination section endorsed by a veterinarian, stating that it has received two injections for primary vaccination against equine influenza, given between 1 and 3 months apart. In addition, a booster injection must be recorded as having been given within each succeeding 6 months, subsequent to the second injection of the primary vaccination. None of these injections must have been given within the preceding 7 days including the day of the competition or of entry into the competition stables.


The above are the minimum requirements for influenza vaccination. Both primary and first and subsequent booster injections should be given according to the manufacturer's instructions which will fall within the stipulation of the FEI ruling.


SAMPLING FOR PROHIBITED SUBSTANCES (Vet. Regs. Chapter V & VI and Annex IV)


Regular sampling is carried out in CCI3*/4*, CSIs (3*, 4*, 5*), CIOs, World Cup Qualifiers and Finals, Championships and Games, whereas at other CIs sampling is recommended. When testing takes place, the number of horses tested is at the discretion of the Testing Veterinarian/Veterinary Delegate; however, a minimum of three is recommended (Vet. Regs. Art. 1016)


Special guidelines are applicable for events covered by the FEI Medication Control Programme (Groups I & II only).


MEDICATION CONTROL PROGRAMME (GROUP I & II ONLY)

In these causes a document certifying participation in a competition and an identification document must follow.

STABLE SECURITY/STEWARDING AT INTERNATIONAL EVENTS


MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO ENSURE IMPLEMENTATION OF

VRs Art. 1005.2.5, Annex X


  1. ACCESS TO STABLE AREA


The stables must be completely enclosed within a suitably restrictive perimeter (stable area) which will act both as a deterrent to the admission of unauthorised persons and to the exit of horses. The area must be sufficiently large to allow horses to be evacuated from the stables in an emergency but still remain within the confines of the perimeter.


Whenever possible the stable area must include only stables; lorries, caravans, etc., should not be permitted within the area unless specifically needed as accommodation for horses and/or grooms.


Access to stables must be limited to those persons indicated in VRs Art. 1005.2.5. It is essential that the official issuing authorised access be a responsible person of seniority within the Organising Committee.


  1. CONTROL OF ACCESS


A control system must operate at all entrance gates so that there is an efficient and reliable method of identifying those who enter and leave the stable area at any time.


Extra vigilance must be used in establishing the identity of persons and reasons for entering the stables during the night.


  1. STEWARDING OF STABLE AREA


At least one stable steward, directly responsible to the Chief Steward, must be present or readily available in the vicinity of the stable area 24 hours a day during the entire duration of the event. He may be assisted by deputies as required. The steward/deputies must regularly patrol the stable area, without establishing any predetermined pattern, to discourage any form of illegal practices or abuses to horses. Any misdemeanours must be reported immediately to the stable steward who must, in turn, report to the Chief Steward.


The duty of the stewards is therefore to safeguard the welfare of the horses and to prevent any form of illegal practices.


  1. GROOMS


It is appreciated that grooms wish to remain with their horses during the night. Only grooms duly registered with the OC are permitted to do so.


The Person Responsible must ensure that his/her grooms, or any other authorised persons with access to his/her horses, are familiar with the security and stewarding procedures operating at the event attended.


  1. MOVEMENT THROUGHOUT EVENT GROUNDS


Movement of horses between the stables, practice, grazing and main arena must be strictly controlled. The optimum layout for Jumping and Dressage disciplines is attached. It is appreciated that flexibility will be required depending on the requirements of other disciplines.


  1. STEWARDING OF PRACTICE ARENA


The Chief Steward must ensure that all practice arenas are adequately stewarded all the time that they are officially open. He must also ensure that these arenas are subject to random control when they are officially closed.


  1. GRAZING AREA


It is recommended that a grazing area be provided at all outdoor events, and that this be subject to random control. If available, horses must only be grazed or walked in hand within this area.


The Foreign Judge/TD at events will be specifically asked to check that the relevant requirements are met as reasonably as can be expected, depending on the discipline, and to indicate clearly any shortfalls, following which consideration may be given to altering the category of the event in future.
