Olympic Minimum Eligibility Requirements – Reminder!
Athlete/Horse combinations will obtain a regular qualifying result as usual if minimum eligibility requirements are met. However, in accordance with the rule set out in the approved Olympic Qualification system (see § 5, page 2), we wish to remind NFs that athlete/horse combinations will not be eligible for a qualifying result for the Olympic Games if the combination has already started a cross country test of a higher level event within less than 10 days after a short format competition and within less than 24 days (i.e. 4 weeks) after a long format competition. Should you have any question, please contact the Eventing and Olympic Department, firstname.lastname@example.org
Eventing Olympic Rankings
For the welfare of the horse and for risk management reasons, the FEI will monitor all combinations participating at higher level events, including those not respecting a rest period of 10 days after a short format competition or 24 days after a long format competition with the aim of obtaining additional points for the Olympic rankings. All entries to higher level events will be checked. National Federations, athletes, coaches and officials will be informed of entries not respecting the above deadlines to ensure that the welfare of the horse remains paramount.
