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.

Any such changes must be notified to all competitors and officials as soon as possible and they must be reported to the FEI Secretary General by the Foreign Judge.


  1. ENTRY RIGHT TO SHOWGROUNDS

The OC will provide passes for competitors, Chef’s Equipe, grooms (1/rider) and owners (max 2/horse). Access to the stable area is carried out according to recommendations of the FEI. The stable area is guarded 24 hours a day.

REMINDER FOR RIDERS AND TRAINERS

REGARDING WARMING-UP AND TRAINING AREAS




In recent years the warming-up areas have become more accessible to spectators, judges, press and media who enjoy watching skilful and sensitive riding and training methods.


Every rider and trainer must accept his responsibility to uphold the high level of horse welfare our sport has achieved.


All warming-up and training areas are supervised by officially appointed FEI stewards. Their job is to ensure that FEI regulations are enforced and riders and trainers maintain standards of riding and warming-up in accordance with art. 143 and 144 of the FEI General Regulations.


Should any spectator, rider, trainer or judge be concerned about, or feel they are witnessing rough or unfair riding or training, without delay they should immediately report the incident to the FEI Steward. The FEI Steward will then decide on the appropriate course of action including reporting the incident to the Chief Steward who will report to the President of the Ground Jury.


More detailed information regarding disciplinary procedures can be found in the FEI General Regulations, art. 174.




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.














SPECIAL GUIDELINES FOR VETERINARY ASPECTS



The section of the Checklist entitled "Veterinary Aspects" is comprised of four sections as follows:


  1. Veterinary Aspects "A" (see page 5)


This page must be published verbatim in all schedules. It refers to:


  • veterinary examinations, horse inspections and passport controls;

  • equine influenza vaccination (note: some events take place, either at venues or in countries which impose more stringent equine influenza vaccination requirements than the FEI. Any deviations from the FEI requirements must be clearly indicated as an addition to the text in Veterinary Aspects "A" which must be published verbatim in the schedules

  • sampling for prohibited substances;

  • Medication Control Programme.


  1. Veterinary Aspects "B" (see page 6)


This page must be fully completed and returned to the FEI with the Draft Schedule.


  1. Code of Conduct (see page 9)


This page must be published in all schedules and it is recommended that it also be published in all programmes of international events.


  1. Order Form for FEI Sampling Kits (see page 20)


The MCP is effected in Groups I and II, by Testing Teams of veterinarians and technicians and by Laboratories all directly instructed by the FEI.

At international events outside the MCP area or at those which are covered by the MCP but at which sampling is required when the Testing Teams are not present, the Veterinary Commission/Delegate will operate in accordance with Vet. Regs Chapter VI.

To provide for this eventuality, FEI Sampling Kits should be ordered directly on the form provided, from:
