2017 FEI Sports Forum Wrap Up
The FEI Bureau revisited all discussions at the FEI Sports Forum 2017, which was widely acknowledged as extremely successful and beneficial.
As this year’s Sports Forum received strong youth input, it was proposed to continue with this trend and make youth a focus for the 2018 edition.
Following further discussions on the topics debated at the Sports Forum, the Bureau tasked the FEI Technical Committees and HQ Departments to review all points raised across Jumping (particularly FEI Nations Cup and CSI/CSIO requirements), FEI Officials, Dressage Judging Working Group, Eventing Risk Management and Endurance and potentially formulate proposals for wider National Federation and stakeholder input.
The Eventing Committee Chair talked through a proposal to revise the star rating for the discipline from one to five star, ranging from the new one star level 1.05m) to the Olympic and WEG format. The new entry level would be designed to introduce developing countries to the sport and bring them under the FEI umbrella at an earlier stage.
Further details on this and a possible new series combining FEI Nations Cup™ and FEI World Cup™ Eventing, potentially for the 2019 season, will be circulated to National Federations and stakeholders for input in due course.
