The FEI is also keen to foster gender equity and diversity among the members of the FEI Committees saying that
‘The FEI Bureau strongly encourages the National Federations to nominate female candidates and representatives of developing nations. The FEI views with immense pride the fact that equestrian sport is one of very few where men and women compete as equals at all levels of international, as well as national, competition’
