FEI Board approves resolutions based on Calendar Task Forces proposals


The FEI Board held an extraordinary meeting yesterday (27 April 2020) to review proposals from six of the discipline-specific Calendar Task Forces. Discussions at the meeting, which was held via videoconference, were on Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Vaulting and Reining.

Concerning Jumping, National Federations and Organisers whose Calendar date applications/modifications have been approved by the FEI during the Covid-19 period have been informed that no guarantee of exclusivity will be provided to them for the new Calendar dates and that equal consideration of all future Calendar date applications/modifications will be given by the relevant Calendar Task Force and by the FEI Board.

The Board approved the two following Emergency Board Resolutions: 

Date applications/modifications:

  • Due to the uncertainty about the organisation of Competitions worldwide during July and August 2020, the Board has approved all Calendar date applications/modifications for Events that take place up to and including 30 August 2020.

Approval of Events: 

  • The Board approved all CSIOs and higher level Events that do not clash with other higher level Events from 1 September 2020. As National Federations submit dates for Events in their country, any clashes with other Events from the same NF are permitted. Switches of venue from the same Organiser are also permitted.

The Jumping Calendar Task Force will hold its third meeting on 4 May 2020. During yesterday’s meeting, the FEI Board agreed that discussions and decisions on FEI Championships for all age categories and disciplines, and potential initiatives to help Organisers, will be deferred to its June meeting.
