Jumping

"The Jumping Committee report updates on the considerable effect the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the discipline, with multiple cancellations, including two major FEI named series Finals - the Longines FEI Jumping World CupTM Final in Las Vegas (USA) and Longines FEI Jumping Nations CupTM Final in Barcelona (ESP). The ongoing global health crisis continues to impact the 2020/2021 season of the Longines FEI Jumping World CupTM series, although plans are in place for alternative qualification pathways to the Final in Gothenburg (SWE).

The report, which can be viewed here, also highlights the considerable impact on the FEI Invitation System - especially at the CSI2* level - as well as the Longines FEI Rankings.

The General Assembly unanimously approved the modifications to the Jumping Rules. All changes to the Jumping Rules can be viewed here in due course."

The report also provides an update on the Veterinary Department initiative to ensure a high level of safety, stable security and biosecurity for horses stabled at FEI Events. The project will be linked to a Jumping Department project on venue requirements.

The Veterinary Committee has confirmed the new Pony Measuring system has been successfully implemented in the EEF in cooperation with National Federations in the region. Following the introduction of a new Pony Measuring System, minor changes have been proposed to improve the system.

The General Assembly unanimously approved all modifications to the Veterinary Regulations. These changes can be viewed here in due course."
