The German Equestrian Federation’s board of directors have made a new recommendation for the German Olympic Equestrian Committee when it comes to nominations for championships teams in the disciplines riding, driving and vaulting. Nomination does no longer rest on results alone, but also on how riders train and handle their horses.

A translation of the recommendation reads:

“When it comes down to team nomination for championships, not only the potential for success will count, but also the strict following of the guidelines for riding, driving and vaulting.

The federation disapproves of any training methods that go against the guidelines.

This means explicitly any aggressive riding or training methods which entail a forceful handling of the horse.”
