FEI Horse Health Requirements 2022

 

In accordance with the FEI Veterinary Regulations 2022 the FEI Horse Health Requirements are being rolled out globally as of 1 January 2022.

Derived from the EHV-1 By-Laws, applied in Mainland Europe from 31 May to 31 December 2021, the Horse Health Requirements have been put in place to:

  • protect FEI Horses and global equestrian sports from the consequences of infectious diseases being transmitted before, during and after FEI Events.
  • provide reassurance of the high health of equestrian sport Horses to global, continental and national veterinary authorities and organisations.
  • maintain and further improve the conditions for international movement of sport Horses.

ALL Horses competing at ALL FEI Events must fulfil the Horse Health Requirements via the FEI HorseApp and sanctions will apply for non-compliance

The FEI HorseApp contains various modules to manage FEI Horses, including traceability features and monitoring of horse health at FEI Events. The FEI HorseApp is available for Athletes, National Federations, Veterinarians, Grooms, Owners, Trainers and Organising Committees.

Athletes can use the FEI HorseApp to:

  • Upload Horse documents to the FEI Database in accordance with Art. 137 of the FEI General Regulations
  • Fill in the Horse Health Self-Certification Form in accordance with the FEI Veterinary Regulations for all FEI Events worldwide
  • Enter daily Horse temperatures in accordance with the FEI Veterinary Regulations for all FEI Events worldwide
  • Check-in Horses when required by the FEI in accordance with the FEI Veterinary Regulations
  • Upload negative PCR tests when required
