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)


The Organising Committees of FEI events within Groups I & II are advised to charge competitors the equivalent of CHF 12.50 per horse per event as a contribution towards the costs of the MCP programme.

Invitation System for CSI 3*+ 4* events in Groups I and II (2007 season)




Section 1 OC Invitations


Maximum 15% of the total riders invited can be invited as wild cards by the Organising Committee through their NFs (these riders may consist of foreign and/or home riders).



Section 2 Home Riders


The number of home riders must not exceed 50% of the total number of riders invited. The minimum number of home riders must not be less than 35% of the total number of riders invited.

The NF/OC decides on the exact percentage for this section, which must be printed in the schedule.

If the home nation does not fill its quota, the remaining places are filled in accordance with the conditions established for invitation of riders in section 4.


Depending on the number of home riders competing internationally, the number of home riders may be increased to 60% of the total number of riders at the event. This may only be done upon receipt of a request from the NF concerned and may or may not be granted at the discretion of the Manager of the FEI Jumping Department.



Section 3 FEI Invitations for Foreign Riders


The FEI has the right to nominate two riders from developing NFs and / or overseas NFs by the deadline date established for nominated entries. The maximum number of times a rider can be nominated during the same season for this group is three. Vacant places under this section are filled in accordance with the conditions established for invitation of riders in section 4.



Section 4 Foreign Riders


The remaining participants are invited by the Organising Committee through their NF’s according to the following procedure:

4.1 Participants in this section must be selected from the top 250 on the riders’ world ranking list established by the FEI three months prior to the event. Each Organising Committee must print in the schedule the number of the list which applies for the invitation of riders.

4.2 At least seven foreign NFs must be represented by riders in this section.

4.3 In this section specifically named riders can be invited. Nevertheless, NFs are free to send the riders of their choice providing that they are of a similar level. However, if an invited named rider, who is within the top 20 on the riders’ world ranking list, does not accept the invitation another rider will be invited by the Organising Committee in accordance with the conditions established for invitation of riders in section 4.1. Disputes will be settled by the FEI Jumping Department.

4.4 If an NF is invited to send participants but decides not to participate, another NF is selected by the Organising Committee in accordance with the conditions established for invitation of riders in section 4.1

4.5 OCs which cannot obtain enough riders from the top 250 on the World Ranking list may invite riders up to the number required by continuing down the World Ranking list until the desired number of riders is obtained. This must be done in descending order. These cannot be pay cards.



Section 5 Six Riders below top 250


Each event is allowed to invite up to 6 riders below the 250th place on the World Ranking list. These places are open to home and/or foreign riders by invitation. This can only be done with FEI approval by requesting with schedule approval. These riders may be required to qualify through the B Tour for the A Tour competitions at the same event. These riders cannot be pay cards. These riders, if the OC decides to invite them, must be in addition to the total number of riders invited. In exceptional cases the Manager of the FEI Jumping Department may increase the number of invitations of riders outside the top 250 on the riders’ world ranking list


There are no restrictions on Organising Committees in relation to the invitation of participants for amateur owner competitions and riders specifically invited for small tour competitions only. However, the total number of horses in the small tour must not exceed 100.


The following fines will be imposed on Organising Committees not respecting the above procedure: 1st offence CHF 20’000.-; 2nd offence CHF 40’000.- ; at the 3rd offence, the event will not be permitted to take place. These fines will be payable directly by the Organising Committees concerned to the FEI.

All complaints and objections to be valid must be made in writing and accompanied by a deposit of CHF 150.- or equivalent.


  1. EVENT'S ORGANISATION (Art. 114 - 115)


In exceptional circumstances, together with the approval of Chefs d'Equipe and Ground Jury the OC reserves the right to modify the schedule in order to clarify any matter or matters arising from an omission or due to unforeseen circumstances. 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 (Art. 133, 1005)

FOR THE INFORMATION OF ORGANISING COMMITTEES


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.

FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES



BASIC PRESS FACILITIES

Requirements from the International Alliance of Equestrian Journalists (IAEJ)



Helping the media to provide good coverage for your competition is one of the cheapest forms of publicity available. Stories in newspapers, magazines or on the radio or television will do a lot for your event, for your sponsors and for the overall visibility of equestrian sport in your area. While media requirements at the top levels can be elaborate, attention to some very simple and easy details can do a lot to help the media exposure of even the smallest competition.


  • Programmes, starting orders, course plans and results must be available at all times. The media must be given priority in the distribution of final results.


  • A small, reserved working area should be available. This can be a small room or a separate space within the secretariat or show office.


  • At least one telephone line must be exclusively available for the media and must be accessible for modem. It does not have to be for free, but available for the media. It can be difficult for the media to find a suitable phone for connecting a laptop so this is a very helpful thing to provide.


  • One telefax must be available. As above, it does not have to be for free. Journalists can pay for their phone calls, but it does need to be available.


  • Press stand. Some seats should be reserved for the media close to the competitors.

  • Press officer. Even in the smallest show, there should be somebody aware that the media might show up and need some help. Within the organizing committee, somebody should be responsible for answering questions from the media if needed (including on the telephone) or to organize a press conference.


  • Access to the warm-up areas. It is essential that journalists and photographers have a chance to contact the riders for interviews, photos etc., and this is best done near the warm-up area.


  • Parking. At least for the photographers who have to carry heavy equipment, there should be a possibility of getting into reserved parking areas next to the competition venue.


  • It would be helpful if accredited press have the opportunity to have some food and drink readily available.
