British Federation discusses the future of Eventing

1st Feb 2016

British Equestrian Federation, on behalf of British Eventing (BE), has recently submitted a reply to an International Equestrian Federation (FEI) Proposal concerning the future of Eventing at the Olympic Games.

BE pulled together a wide range of Eventing experts, including competition organisers, riders and owners, to form a working group and lead discussion from a British standpoint. Drawing on a vast wealth of experience the group addressed proposed changes relating to format and presentation of the three phases of the Eventing competition, based on Olympic Agenda 2020 recommendations.

The working group also embraced opportunities around engagement as the sport strives to uphold a forward-thinking approach to reaching and exciting new and particularly younger, audiences to boost popularity and exposure worldwide.

To develop the response the working group met twice last year. Further information can be found below:
