FEI Show Jumping Rule Changes In The Works

IMPORTANT DATES: Every four years on a rotating schedule, each Fédération Equestre Internationale discipline undergoes a full review and revision of its rules. This year, show jumping is on the table for major changes.

During the first day of the annual FEI Sports Forum, held at the beginning of June, the key rule-change proposals were brought up for discussion. While only the biggest proposed changes that would affect the sport or organization of competitions were discussed, a full set of proposals for 2022 will be published July 12.

The rules will be discussed and voted on during the FEI General Assembly, Nov. 13-14. Once approved by the FEI and the national federations, the rules will go into effect January 1, 2022.
