ANNUAL REPORT 2004


FOREWORD BY THE FEI PRESIDENT

Athens 2004 was very special for equestrian sport. “Welcome Home” was the motto of the Olympic Games which were returning to their roots. This was especially true for the equestrian disciplines which had been part of the ancient Olympic Games in 680 BC in the form of chariot and horse races. At Markopoulo, horses and riders could benefit from state-of-the-art installations – which were far beyond the specifications and requirements of the FEI – including remarkable stables and one of the world’s most modern horse clinics. The Athens Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (ATHOC) must be congratulated for what they accomplished at Markopoulo. The atmosphere was friendly and warm and the competitions blessed with beautiful weather. Despite the overall success of the Olympic Games and the unforgettable Greek hospitality, equestrian sport went through several successive ordeals, the worst of which undoubtedly were the alleged horse doping cases revealed a few weeks after the Games. High profile positive medication cases have a devastating impact on equestrian sport. The negative media coverage is damaging to the healthy image of our sport and can discourage sponsors, spectators and fans. Moreover, I believe that young riders and newcomers to the sport must be able to identify themselves to high level competitors who, as role models, are expected to set the pace in the fight against doping. I would like to urge international riders to strictly follow the medication procedures and make sure that the attention and care they dedicate to the welfare of their horses are never impeded. There is an important difference between medication and doping, the latter meaning the presence of prohibited substances administered to enhance performance and susceptible of endangering the horses' health. Like a number of international federations before us, the FEI has come to realise that our procedures must be reviewed as they are no longer appropriate to deal with the increasing number of positive cases, as well as the escalating media interest.

FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

In November 2004, the FEI Bureau established a task force to review the policies necessary for the elimination of abusive and illegal performanceenhancing drugs and to review the general medication control of horses as well as its communication. I am confident that, with the firm determination and support of all of those involved in the sport, we can rapidly implement drastic measures to ensure a clean and fair sport. These last few years, many efforts were made by the FEI in the field of sports development, through a dedicated Development Fund and the increased cooperation with the Olympic Solidarity. It is a real satisfaction for us to welcome new countries to the highest level of competition. The number of nations taking part in the Olympic Games has grown from 25 in Atlanta in 1996 to 39 in Athens, which demonstrates the encouraging growth of our sport. During 2004, one of the major tasks of the FEI Development Working Group was the FEI Coaching System. In total six regional Olympic Solidarity courses for coaches were organised in Barbados, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Swaziland and South Africa. The implementation of the FEI Coaching System requires that developing NFs put in place their own coaching structure, thus providing a solid basis for the orderly growth of the sport in their country. This year's FEI November Bureau Meeting was organised in Buenos Aires upon the invitation by the Federación Ecuestre Argentina and in conjunction with the final event of the Samsung Nations Cup Series. I take this opportunity to mention once more the incredible success of the Samsung Super League and thank our Korean partner for their dedication to the project. The number of international competitions on the FEI calendar has grown to reach 1533 in 2004. This number has more than doubled since 2000. The result is a very substantial increase in the workload of the FEI Secretariat staff in Lausanne, and I would like to emphasize here their dedication and thank them for their constant efforts and commitment.

the pair had crossed the start line twice in the team Jumping test. The turn of events was initially investigated by the Ground Jury whose conclusion was that Hoy’s action should be penalised with the addition of 14 penalties. The Appeal Committee, petitioned by the Germans, overturned the Ground Jury’s verdict. As a result, an appeal was filed jointly by the National Olympic Committees of France, Great Britain and the USA. It was upheld by the CAS and so it was that France became team Olympic Champions, Great Britain won the silver and the USA bronze.

FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004 13


REPORT BY THE FEI SECRETARY GENERAL For the first time in many years, I had the opportunity to attend the World Breeding Championship for Young Jumping Horses in Lanaken (BEL) and found the organisation more efficient and sophisticated than ever. Similarly to Astorp, rain created serious problems which were handled most professionally. A change of the footing may, however, be required for the future. For the FEI, the year 2004 strongly resembled a roller-coaster ride with many ups and downs. Foremost among the positives were, of course, the Olympic Games in Athens. They were a huge success for all 28 sports on the programme including equestrian, which was held at a fantastic venue featuring topclass sport in all three disciplines. Unfortunately, the sporting achievements were marred by some accidents and judging mistakes that attracted strong media attention. After the Games, the positive medication tests involving several medal winners were likewise of great interest for the press. As these cases have not yet been finalised at the time this report goes to print, I will refrain from further comments. It should be emphasized that as far as medication control was concerned, 2004 has weighed heavily in the balance. The number of positive cases has almost doubled in comparison to the average recorded in recent years. Some of these cases were very high profile and were disturbingly recorded at world championships and other top events. Many of them were prolonged as a result of the escalating tendency of riders to seek representation by legal counsels and raise an array of procedural and legal arguments. These factors put the FEI Legal Department under enormous pressure and it was decided that this department must be restructured in order to better address the increasingly litigious environment. The process is expected to be completed by mid-2005. In addition, the FEI Bureau at its November meeting decided to create a task force in order to investigate the situation particularly from policy and sports points of view. The conclusions will be presented at the 2005 General Assembly in London. It should also be noted that within the framework of the new FEI strategic plan initiated in 2004, a working group was given the task of looking at horse welfare issues including the medication control system. Finally, as to this problematic area, the 2004 General Assembly accepted a new “fast-track” system for handling simpler medication control cases. It is estimated that approximately two-thirds of the current case load may be handled under this new system which will make the work of the Legal Department much more effective and enable the concentration of time and resources on the investigation and processing of more complex cases.

14 FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

Going back to this summer’s Olympic Games, I would particularly like to highlight the success of the new Eventing format with a shortened cross-country course and no steeple chase. It became a real asset for the competition curtailing the criticisms experienced in recent years and turning this discipline into a showcase of modern equestrian sport. With the addition of two successful FEI Eventing World Cup seasons and a 2004 Final in Pau (FRA) featuring an improved participation field compared to the previous year, the discipline has now reached a well-deserved phase of recognition following a period of turbulence. The threat against its Olympic status has vanished for the foreseeable future. Given that several horses suffered serious tendon injuries during the Olympic Jumping competitions, an Independent Footing Committee, chaired by Edouard de Rothschild, President of the French racing association France Galop, was created. Their goal was to establish the reasons for these accidents and produce recommendations for the future. On 17 January 2005, the Committee’s final report was presented to the FEI Executive Board which concluded that the injuries were caused by a combination of factors and, therefore, not one party was to be held responsible. The recommendations resulting from the findings were taken very seriously by the FEI Executive Board who decided to adopt strict measures in the field of footing expertise, veterinary measures and course design through which the safest conditions possible at all future championships and games should be provided. Among the many well organised and successful championships that took place in 2004, I would particularly like to mention the two FEI World Driving Championships. The fourin-hand championship in Kesckemet (HUN) was especially noted for huge and enthusiastic spectator crowds. The singles championship in Astorp (SWE) on the other hand was quite unlucky because of the rainy weather, but despite the difficult conditions, the organising committee succeeded in putting on excellent competitions that brought well-deserved success to the home team.

The 2004 FEI World Endurance Championship took place exceptionally in January 2005 in Dubai (UAE). It surely was a championship of records: a record number of NFs and riders participating, a record speed for 160 km, the best ever vet gate and truly outstanding veterinary facilities. In short a magnificent event with a remarkable man behind it all: Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum whose extraordinary support and involvement in the sport have raised it to a completely new level. However, it is not only the top layers of the sport that are thriving and changing. Equestrian sport is growing at all levels. Thus in 2004 there were 1532 FEI events worldwide as opposed to 1402 in 2003 and 1242 the year before. The number of international events has doubled in five years. Unsurprisingly, Jumping was the discipline with the highest number of events – 620, followed by Eventing with 304. Especially noteworthy is the breakthrough of the Reining discipline: 29 international events were organised in 2004 whereas there were only 3 in 2003. France leads in event organisation having put on the most events (193), followed by the USA (151) and Germany (134). After the cancellation of the 2003 FEI General Assembly, it was obvious that the 2004 edition in Paris would be extremely busy. And so it proved to be. Most importantly, a considerable revision of the FEI Statutes and General Regulations was approved by the General Assembly. A noteworthy development was the fact that Paraequestrian was accepted as the eighth FEI discipline. Discussions had been ongoing for several years and the outcome was most satisfactory. The appeal of the discipline was further underlined by the success of Paraequestrian at the Athens Paralympic Games. Apart from the abovementioned introduction of a fast track for dealing with minor positive medication cases, it should be noted that the position of the FEI second-vice president was “opened” in such a way that potential candidates need no longer be FEI Bureau members. Jane Clarke (USA) stepped down from the Bureau and the Executive Board after serving

two very satisfactory four-year terms. Jack Pemberton (CAN), the uncommonly resourceful and popular chairman of the FEI Driving Committee, left after a similarly lengthy period. And so did Elena Petushkova (RUS), who chaired Geographical Group III from 1995 to 2004. Katharine E. Jackson (USA), Alexander Machkevitch (KAZ) and Richard Nicoll (USA) were elected as the chairmen of Group IV, Group III and the Driving Committee respectively to replace the outgoing Bureau members. The Fédération Française d’Equitation proved to be outstanding hosts to the 2004 FEI General Assembly. Meetings and functions were organised in a most professional manner and the Château de Versailles and Paris City Hall provided magical scenery for the official dinners. Really, an Assembly never to be forgotten. The November FEI Bureau Meeting was held in Buenos Aires (ARG) upon the invitation of Gerardo Werthein, president of the Federación Ecuestre Argentina, who, together with the federation’s team provided a warm welcome to all participants. The meetings were very productive leading to extensive discussions on several difficult subjects regarding in particular the problems in Athens and the medication control issues with which the FEI was confronted. The Buenos Aires CSIO was again this year the final event of the 2004 Samsung Nations Cup Series. The winners of this very exciting competition were the Swiss team who, as a result, were promoted to the Samsung Super League. The FEI Commercial Division, which was created late in 2003, began functioning actively in 2004. The Commercial Director, Christophe Troendle initiated what can be considered as a mini revolution. The result was a new corporate identity for the federation, which had never happened in the 83 years of FEI history. The FEI has evolved enormously over the last few years. From a somewhat rigid and remote body, it has become a more global organisation and has demonstrated a firm will to involve all stakeholders of our sport in its actions. The importance of a clear corporate identity, reflecting the personality of the FEI has become evident. We are proud to introduce our new corporate identity, which has been specifically created to communicate the core values of our federation. This new visual approach, which places the horse as the focal element of our logo, will without doubt help build and maintain a strong personality for the FEI, as the natural leader of equestrian sport and a reliable partner for all those involved. We are convinced that with everyone’s support, we will ensure the success of this strong and inspiring brand.

Athens would not to be a benchmark for other Olympic Games but the level would be reviewed for future championships and games in view of combining universality with participation of the world’s best riders - details of the Eventing Safety Programme Annual Report - an update of the 2005 FEI World Event Riders Rankings Rules including CICs - recognition of the success of the 2nd FEI Eventing World Cup Final and the decision that the project continue with the same rules for 2005 with the distance of the Cross Country shortened to 4000m.

20 FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

FEI Eventing World Cup The 2nd FEI Eventing World Cup season included 17 qualifiers and a Final held for the second year in Pau (FRA), from 22 to 24 October. Some 314 riders and horses participated as opposed to 308 in 2003. The Swedish rider, Linda Algotsson on My Fair Lady was again the winner of the FEI Eventing World Cup Final. She had also won the first edition in 2003. She was followed by Jean Teulère (FRA) on Bambi de Brière and Karin Donckers (BEL) on Gormley. Improvement from last year was obvious, especially in regard to the entries in the Final. The point system was changed in 2004 to relate only to riders (and not to combinations) thus enabling a better understanding of the lead up to the Final. The change of location and date of the 2005 Final to Malmö (SWE) from 11 to 14 August should provide additional interest and a promising future.

DRIVING COMMITTEE The FEI Driving Committee held its annual meeting at Astorp (SWE), on 25 and 26 July following the FEI World Driving Singles Championship. Main items/activities included: - finalising of new FEI Rules for Driving (effective 1 January 2005) - calendar pertaining to upcoming seminars in Europe, America and Australia - discussions concerning the FEI World Cup Driving and proposed amendments to the relevant rules - discussion on the need to attract more judges - need to provide an ongoing system to advance judges up to “I” and “O” status.

FEI World Cup Driving The FEI World Cup Driving Series ended with the final event held in the Scandinavium arena in Gothenburg (SWE) on 8 - 11 April. Michael Freund (GER) won every single World Cup event during the 2003/2004 season except for the final one. He once again wins the Trophy as the FEI World Cup Driving Champion. Boyd Exell (AUS) came in second followed by Christoph Sandmann (GER) third. FEI Top Driver Awards Four-in-Hand Driving, supported by Finn Caspersen The Top Driver Award for Four-in-Hand concluded once again in Donaueschingen (GER) on 16 - 19 September. With 77 points, Michael Freund* (GER) is the winner of the 2004 Trophy. Ysbrand Chardon (NED) is second with 75 points and Zoltan Lazar (HUN) is third with 63 points. Pairs Driving, supported by Van der Wiel Harness The final event in the FEI Top Driver Award for Pairs held at Greven-Bockholt (GER) on 16 – 19 September witnessed the victory of Zsolt Selyben (HUN) with 64 points, followed in second position by François Dutilloy (FRA) with 60 points and Mieke van Tergouw (NED) in third with 57 points. Singles Driving, supported by Kühnle Kutschenmanufaktur GmbH & Co. KG After the final event, held in Astorp (SWE) on 21 – 25 July, Ben Simonsen (FIN) was proclaimed winner of the FEI Top Driver Award for Singles with a total of 45 points, ahead of Jan van den Broek (NED), 42 points, and Marie Kahrle (SWE), 40 points.

22 FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

“Structure of the FEI”, “Olympic Games”, “Information Technology”, “Marketing and Communications” and “Development”. These working groups will produce their reports early in 2005. - discussion of Pay Cards proposals with the preparation of a final document to be distributed at the 2005 General Assembly - taking note of information pertaining to the future of the Commercial division and impending marketing plans.

JUDICIAL COMMITTEE In 2004 the FEI Judicial Committee met in Tel Aviv (ISR) on 12 March; a combination of a meeting and hearings was held in Brussels (BEL) on 17 September; hearings were held in Zurich (SUI) on 2 December. Additional meetings took place on a regular basis by means of conference calls. Main items/activities included: - establishment of procedures to deal with human medication cases under the World Anti-Doping Code - medication cases for horses: the Committee decided on approximately 50 cases stemming from 2003 and 2004 events. Until late 2003 the percentage of positives had remained stable, with the majority of cases graded 3 or lower (lower potential to affect performance) and involving primarily negligence, very often by third parties and by amateur riders. In 2004 more frequent testing, a change of laboratory and certain other factors lead to a doubled percentage of positive cases. The number of “repeat offenders” is still minimal. The majority of the cases were decided by correspondence, with frontal hearings held in regard to three cases. The Committee was also involved with a number of appeals presented to the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS). - The Committee emphasized that a more transparent medication control system was called for. Traditionally there had not been publications regarding judicial cases until the end of the appeal period (or where a joint press release was agreed upon). Given that there were no objections on legal grounds to the disclosure of the status of the case throughout the legal process, early communication might counter any unfounded speculation and the notion that the FEI failed to take action. Decisions should be used as an educational tool. - The Committee repeated prior recommendations to establish a multi-disciplinary body to conduct a thorough policy review of medication control. It expressed its satisfaction at the establishment of a task force to review the FEI medication policy in November 2004. - “fast track” procedure for positive medication cases for horses: the Committee drafted the correspondence and documentation to be used for the processing of cases in accordance with this procedure which came into effect as

part of the 21st edition of the General Regulations. - The Committee heard evidence from the producer of “Tranquil” which had been found to contain the prohibited substance Reserpine. Certain batches were contaminated and riders using these batches had no possibility to know that they contained the prohibited substance. The producer was requested to take immediate action to warn potential users and to remove all contaminated products from circulation. - interpretation of FEI rules - disciplinary matters In conclusion, it should be noted that the FEI Judicial Committee is a disciplinary committee which judges cases and therefore cannot act as a prosecutor. This role must be assumed by the FEI Legal Department. In order to maintain a clean sport and enable separation of “coincidental” offenders from those that intend to obtain an unfair advantage in competition, the FEI has to assume a strong prosecutor’s role in more cases, obtain expert evidence and allow for decisions based on a complete factual background. This may be achieved through the strengthening of the FEI Legal Department.

MEDICAL COMMITTEE The FEI Medical Committee held its third official meeting in Rome (ITA), on 4 June. Main items/activities included: - proposal to the FEI Executive Board to rename the “Ad Hoc Medical Committee” to “FEI Medical Committee” and have it act as a subcommittee to the FEI Judicial Committee - discussion and approval of the FEI AntiDoping Rules - proposal that the FEI Medical Committee assume additional responsibilities as the FEI has complied with the World Anti-Doping Code and implemented the FEI Anti-Doping Rules - discussion of the FEI Registered Testing Pool and Whereabouts of Elite Athletes - discussion of pressing issues facing human athletes before the 2004 Athens Olympic Games - review of Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) applications submitted for approval - took note that the IOC Medical Commission would have the authority from 30 July to 29 August to approve or reject all TUEs for athletes taking part in the 2004 Olympic Games.

FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004 23


FEI REGIONAL GROUPS

The National Federations affiliated to the FEI are divided into nine regional groups in order to promote and coordinate the development and activities of equestrian sport within the Group area as well as facilitate communication. Group I - expresses its concern for transparency in the fight against doping as well as the manner in which the FEI legal proceedings are carried out - stresses that issues for the temporary import of horses must be resolved with the respective governments before the allocation of the 2010 World Equestrian Games. Group II - supports the concerns of Group I pertaining to transparency and speed of medication control as well as the ensuing legal proceedings - decides to hold an additional Group meeting at the end of January 2005 with medication control as the main topic of discussion.

24 FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

Group III - appreciates the FEI Development and the Olympic Solidarity Programmes with their courses and seminars - agrees to hold more competitions on borrowed horses to maintain potential and raise motivation in riders - expresses its concern about veterinary restrictions in the European Union and its curbing effects on the development of equestrian sport in this Group. Group IV - expresses the enthusiasm reflected during the Group meeting held in November 2004 in Jamaica - informs that many activities have taken place despite severe damages caused by adverse climatic conditions - expresses concern about quarantine and transportation of horses participating in the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro (BRA) - informs that the FEI World Challenge supported by PSI continues to be one of the most important competitions for the Group. Group V - supports Group IV in its concern and resolve to find a solution to quarantine problems for horses participating in the 2007 Pan American Games

- informs that the FEI World Challenge supported by PSI and the FEI Children’s competitions are very successful - informs that a meeting is being scheduled for early 2005. Long distances make regular meetings difficult to organise. Group VI - highlights the importance of the Development Projects and the FEI Coaching System - informs that a well-attended Dressage Forum was held in Brazil - is proud to inform that the 2005 FEI Pan American Endurance Championship will be held for the first time outside of Group IV, in Pinamar (ARG). A very useful and successful test event was organised the week preceding the FEI Bureau meeting in November 2004.

Group IX - informs that the FEI Coaching System was recently introduced in southern Africa through the organisation of a course in Swaziland, well supported by the Group - is proud to inform that the FEI World Challenges supported by PSI were once again a great success and several countries from the Group were represented at the Final, in both Jumping and Dressage.

Group VII - has not been able to organise a meeting since the 2004 General Assembly. Group VIII - supports the proposal of teams of three riders for the Olympic Dressage competitions - informs that 11 NFs in this Group organised events for the FEI World Dressage Challenge supported by PSI - appreciates the FEI Coaching System: three courses are planned for the first quarter of 2005 - is working very hard to make the forthcoming 2006 Asian Games in Doha (QAT) a great success.

FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004 25


SPORT DEVELOPMENT The 2004 FEI General Assembly gave the opportunity to developing National Federations to take part in a Development Workshop where three main topics were addressed. The first was the FEI Coaching System, presented by Gerry Mullins (IRL), Chairman of the FEI Development Working Group; the second covered the Olympic Solidarity programmes and was introduced by Yassine Yousfi, Project Manager at the International Olympic Committee; and the third, which led to vehement discussions, focused on the FEI World Jumping and Dressage Challenges supported by PSI.

FEI DEVELOPMENT WORKING GROUP The FEI Development Working Group met twice during this Olympic year: once in April and once in October. The adaptation of the material for the Introduction to Coaching and Level I was the Group’s major task throughout the year. The introduction of the FEI Coaching System resulted in a significant increase in the workload handled by the FEI Secretariat. Reinforcement of the Development Department is consequently called for in order to allow it to properly perform managing tasks such as course organisation and follow-up; audit of developing NFs; monitoring of coaches data; ongoing training for coaches and tutors; assessment of coaching material; management of development competitions; reinforcement of cooperation with Olympic Solidarity; communication and publications. The effects in the short term will be the growth of staff and the use of technical experts when needed. The Development Working Group also contributed to the 2010 FEI Strategic Plan.

FEI COACHING SYSTEM The implementation of the first Olympic Solidarity courses for coaches using the FEI Coaching System was the main objective of 2004. In total, six regional courses at Level I were organised: in Bolivia and Brazil (conducted by Gerry Mullins), Chile (Peter Strijbosch, NED), Barbados (Susanne Macken, IRL), Swaziland (Kathy Amos Jacob, FRA) and South Africa (Karl-Heinz Giebmanns, GER). The first Level II course will be organised in 2005 in South America. The advanced training programme for FEI Officials (all disciplines) was well used. Basic courses for judges and course designers were organised in Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Israel, Latvia and Lebanon. Officials from Hong Kong, Iran, Lithuania and South Africa travelled to Europe on development funding in order to gain experience at FEI shows. Jumping Training courses for riders in Algeria, Antigua, Armenia, Cayman Islands, Georgia, Jamaica, Malawi, Netherlands Antilles and Ukraine were financed by the FEI Development Fund. The Fund also supported the first Africa Cup in Swaziland and the Caucasus Cup in Georgia.

26 FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

each individual performance commenting on the mistakes and suggesting improvements and possible new training techniques. Good basis was established for a proper course according to the FEI Coaching System.

Dressage The first Latin American Dressage Forum took place in Sao Paulo (BRA). The Forum was organised around the following themes: - basic principles and philosophy, new rules and judging, by Mariette Whitages, FEI Dressage Committee Chairman - training and training programmes for children, by Jean Bemelmans, trainer - development: achievements and plans for the future, by Jacqueline Braissant, FEI Development Project Manager; - horse anatomy and the influence of horse riding on anatomy, by Gerd Heuschmann, FEI Veterinarian - young horses, by Angelika Fromming, FEI International Judge. Training courses were held in Antigua, Czech Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Kenya, Malawi, Latvia, Slovakia, Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Both the FEI World Cup Jumping and Dressage events in Central European and Central Asian Leagues received an FEI contribution. In Dressage, this contribution was only given to shows with Young Riders classes. Eventing Eventing has had a lot of success in this first year of developing the discipline in Eastern Europe. Andrew Griffiths (GBR), project coordinator and FEI Technical Delegate, Ronald Alexander (GBR), course designer, Christian Zehe (GER), course designer and builder, Jean-Philippe Camboulives (FRA), FEI Tutor, and Ekaterina Voronova (RUS), regional coordinator were involved in this project. Two cross-country courses were built in Belarus for a CCI1* and a CIC2*. Three existing courses in Russia at one-, two- and three-star level (CIC-W) were upgraded. Three competitions were organised: Minsk in May 2004, Moscow in June and August 2004.

Eventing in South America has evolved tremendously. As a result of the efforts of José Ortelli (ARG), a forum was organised in Argentina in November on the occasion of the country’s national Eventing championship. Representatives from the neighbouring countries were also present. Wayne Roycroft, FEI Eventing Committee Chairman, and Catrin Norinder, FEI Eventing Department Manager attended. Similarly to Russia, a postcompetition debriefing was conducted by Jean-Philippe Camboulives. Vaulting This discipline is growing at a speedy pace in South and Central America and will be the first nonolympic discipline to join the FEI Coaching System. A vast programme is coordinated by Fernanda Shaw (ARG). Clinics, conducted by Dietmar Otto (GER) and Bjorn Ashbash (GER), were organised in Argentina and Brazil with the assistance of the FEI Development Fund. Judges from Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico attended an FEI seminar at Warendorf (GER). Endurance The FEI Development Officer, Elizabeth Van Schelle (BRA), worked very hard bringing new countries from South and Central America to the competition. Seminars for Judges and Veterinarians were organised in Argentina, Mexico and Uruguay. In South Africa, Dereck Liebeberg (RSA) is also working hard to develop this discipline. Driving FEI World Cup Driving: a seminar for Driving Officials, supported by the FEI Development Fund, was organised at Warendorf (GER). The FEI Steward General, Paul Weier (SUI) conducted a course for Stewards for Geographical Groups V and VI in Colombia.

COMPETITIONS

A ground jury composed of FEI International Judges officiated at these competitions. Extensive informal discussions between international and local officials as well as course walks with detailed explanations by the course designer and technical delegate took place at all the events. Special attention was paid to the CCI3* cross country fences some of which are fairly new to most riders.

FEI WORLD DRESSAGE CHALLENGE SUPPORTED BY PSI Late November marks the end of the competitions of the FEI World Dressage Challenge supported by PSI. It was a relief for the 20 dedicated and efficient FEI Judges who came back exhausted but full of wonderful memories and adventures. It gave a great satisfaction to the FEI to note that the expectations were fulfilled; the competition went well and was once again an outstanding success.

A first-ever postcompetition debriefing was conducted by FEI Tutor Jean-Philippe Camboulives. The entire competition had been recorded and riders, officials and Tutor went through

In 2004 participation increased by more than 10 %. We were very pleased to welcome Slovakia for the first time. Korea came back after two years of absence demonstrating a very

FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004 27


good level. Not all were that fortunate. The Philippines and Venezuela withdrew while unlucky Kazakhstan saw the roof of their indoor arena fall down two days prior to the competition, which obviously forced them to cancel it. Fortunately, and thanks to the support of Israel, the Judges’ routing was not modified and they stayed some additional days in the area giving clinics before continuing their trip to Romania. The rule on the limitation of participation of riders and horses at a level higher than Prix St. Georges, introduced in 2003, was finally accepted and significant increase in the number of children participating was noted. From the Judges’ reports, we have noted that the PSI sponsorship requirements were fulfilled by all NFs and PSI prizes were distributed to everyone except in countries where problems at customs arose. This is a recurrent problem which has remained difficult to solve.

OVERVIEW OF THE GROUPS Group 1: ARG, BRA, CHI, RSA, URU Once again South Africa won all four categories of the FEI World Dressage Challenge supported by PSI. Martine Lambert (RSA), who went twice to the Final in Hagen representing Zimbabwe and winning the first one, is still leading the Prix St. Georges level in Group 1. Argentina took advantage of the Additional Competition to enter two riders at Intermediate I and one at Grand Prix level. Unfortunately, “shadow judging” does not appear to be very popular and national judges

28 FEI ANNUAL REPORT 2004

refrain from getting involved and therefore do not take advantage of this competition to judge and share their views with the FEI Judges. Group 2: CRC, COL, GUA, MEX, PER Jacques van Daele (BEL) and Garry Rockwell (USA) judged in this Group for the third consecutive year. They saw with satisfaction that their endeavours had been worth the while. Their efforts, together with the willingness of the riders to learn, have resulted in a higher level each year. Mr Van Daele also gave a basic stewarding seminar in each country. Mexico and Colombia are strong and have taken the lead in the Group. However, the other countries are not far behind and have made significant progress. Group 3: BOL, ECU, ESA, HON, VEN All in all, the number of riders has increased. Unfortunately, Venezuela withdrew and it is to be hoped that they will come back in 2005. In Bolivia, the competition which was supposed to be held in La Paz was moved to Santa Cruz. There was an additional competition in Honduras. This country did not participate in 2003 and has come back after making a big effort to raise their level. In this Group local judges did not take the opportunity to “shadow judge” either. Group 4: GRE, ISR, KAZ, ROM, UAE Dr Barnabas Mandi (HUN) and Peter Engel (GER) judged in Group 4 which proved rather complicated considering the difficult routing. The competition in Kazakhstan had to be cancelled and, except in the UAE, the weather conditions were bad. November is not a suitable month for holding outdoor competitions in these countries. This unfortunate planning was mainly due to the Olympic and Paralympic Games held in August and September in Greece. As last year, Romania did not enter any children and the number of participants remained regrettably low.

Group 5: BLR, HUN, RUS, SLO, UKR This Group is the one where attendance at Prix St. Georges level is the largest. The powerful Dressage tradition of the Eastern European countries is strongly felt. All four categories saw riders winning with a score higher than 68%. The competition was broadcast on TV in some places and the judges were interviewed in Moscow. The level has improved and especially that of the 5-year-old horses in Belarus. However, the lack of trainers is a real problem. Some good local judges judged in shadow but the need for courses and seminars for judges is strongly felt in this area. Group 6 : CZE, EST, LAT, LTU, SVK In 2002, there were only three countries: Czech Republic, Lithuania and Latvia. In 2003, Estonia completed the Baltic States and in 2004, Slovakia joined the Group. Dressage is developing significantly not only in terms of competitors, but also of standards. There is a huge potential in these countries and we expect greater participation in the future. Unfortunately, there was no media coverage and very few spectators. Local judges were always present except in Slovakia and Estonia. Group 7: BOT, KEN, NAM, SWA, ZAM, ZIM This Group is perhaps the one which improved the most in all aspects. Riders are keen to learn and have followed the judges’ advice. Big improvements have been noticed everywhere but especially in Zimbabwe and Swaziland. Botswana showed enormous progress in the grooming of the horses.

Zambia reached an average score of 67 % in the children’s competition which is remarkable. There was no TV coverage but articles were published in the press. National Judges were scribes in some places or judged in shadow. A homemade video showing the Challenge tests ridden by British top riders was a great success. Group 8: INA, IND, MAS, SIN, THA Here again the number of riders has increased, especially in the Novice test. The level is improving very slowly and we hope that with the forthcoming 2008 Olympic Games, Dressage will gain popularity. There was TV coverage in Malaysia and Indonesia. Harriet Walsh from Singapore achieved a score of 72.2 % in the Children’s competition. Group 9: CHN, HKG, KOR, NZL, TPE This Group is usually an easy one. Travel, running of the competitions, accommodation, riding facilities, and weather conditions are all harmonious. Most flights are direct and distances between countries reasonable. Korea came back after some years of absence entering 14 rider/horse combinations. China is making a very big effort to improve their level and develop the discipline. The show in Beijing was attended by sponsors Mr and Mrs Kasselmann. Although New Zealand has a higher general level (they won all 4 classes with an average result of 60%), promising riders and horses from Korea, China and Taipei are heading to the top. For the second consecutive year, Mandy Littlejohn (NZL) won the Group ranking at Prix St. Georges level and is consequently, for the second time, qualified for the Final in Hagen. In all countries the general discussion with riders as well as the video and clinic sessions were greatly appreciated. Group 10: ANT, BAR, BER, DOM, JAM, TRI Isobel Wessels (GBR) and Peter Engel (GER) went for the second time to the Caribbean from 24 March until 18 April. For these two hard workers, the Tour was quite long considering the low number of riders involved in each country. Ways to shorten it, such as organising the veterinary inspection on the day of the competition, have been requested for next year. The level has not improved from last year probably due to the lack of stimuli as there are practically no other shows during the year apart from the Challenge. The children in particular have problems riding in a 20 x 60 m arena. Most horses are not sensitive to the aids and contact between hand and mouth is a big problem. The number of spectators was quite impressive compared to other groups. Generally speaking, competitions were very well organised. The clinics were held in the competition arenas. In some countries, even two arenas were at the judges’ disposal to conduct the practical session. In Barbados, TV and press were represented.

FEI WORLD JUMPING CHALLENGE SUPPORTED PSI

FINALS OF THE FEI WORLD JUMPING AND DRESSAGE CHALLENGE SUPPORTED BY PSI

The participation in the 2004 FEI World Jumping Challenge supported by PSI slightly decreased compared to the previous year, i.e.

As every year since 2001, the Hof Kasselmann hosted the 2003 FEI World Jumping and Dressage Challenge Finals supported by PSI. From the moment they arrived on 28 June, the 50 riders qualified for this event enjoyed an active programme combining both competition and entertainment. The Children’s Dressage Final organised indoors took place on 3 July, while the adults fought for their titles on 4 July. It was noted with great satisfaction that the level of the Children had improved compared to last year’s. Brigette Learmonth (NZL), Giuliana Gasparin-Lucchesi (BRA) and Chara Pouli (GRE) performed well the test which had been reviewed for this occasion. The Jumping and Dressage Challenge Finals for Adults with change of horses were, as always, very exciting and well attended. In Jumping, four riders battled for the three first places. Annika Reintam (EST) was without discussion the best and won ahead of Jorge Raul Garzon Baquero (COL) and Anna Christina Gansauer (ECU). Mauricio Garcia Ballesteros (PUR) finished fourth. In Dressage, the best three riders after the second Qualifier fought for the first place. Finally, Andrea Harrison (RSA) took the lead ahead of Akoele Roachford (BAR) and Brigitte Davidow (NAM).

2002 2003 2004

Category A 523 participants 528 participants 489 participants

Category B 274 participants 363 participants 321 participants

This was due to the withdrawal of some strong NFs such as Algeria, Argentina and Ukraine. However, we have noted the first participation of Armenia, Lebanon, Tunisia, China and Singapore in Category A. In Category B, we welcomed Cuba, El Salvador and Barbados.

It may seem tempting to compare the levels of every year, however, that is not possible as the course plans are designed by a different course designer each time. But, it appears that the course plans of Javier Fernandez (MEX) were found a little easier compared to those of 2003. Similarly to the Dressage Challenge, considerable improvement was noted in the African group in Category B. Significant progress was made by the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, and especially Zimbabwe whose representatives Alexia Rogers and Bev Lombard placed first and second respectively. Thirty-two riders went clear in Category A and the results show that there is no supremacy of one particular region over the others. The winner was Prince Fesal bin Saud Alshallan (KSA) ahead of Alvaro Becker (MEX). All in all, the judges were unanimous in recognizing that this competition is a wonderful opportunity for riders from developing NFs to compete and be classified in an international ranking. Twenty riders from 10 regional groups have won their ticket to the FEI/PSI Final at Hof Kasselmann in Hagen (GER) which will be held from 2 to 5 June 2005.

AFFILIATIONS Three new National Federations were warmly welcomed to the FEI - the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (MKD) Group I, the Cayman Islands (CAY) - Group IV, and Sri Lanka (SRI) - Group VIII, thus bringing the number of FEI member federations to 133.

OTHER ACTIVITIES www.horsesport.org

On 4 August 2004, only days before the opening of the Games of the XXVIII Olympiad, the FEI unveiled its brand new website. Over the last few years, the FEI website had become an essential tool in the FEI communications strategy, but also the central depository of official documents, rules, regulations and various reports produced for the attention of the National Federations, FEI officials, event organisers and all those involved in equestrian competitions. As it was increasingly difficult to find the relevant document in this extremely crowded environment, it became evident that the existing structure no longer fulfilled its purpose. In 2003, the FEI decided to undertake a broad consultation among all its partners, and received as a result numerous comments. Work could begin. The fundamental structure of the website was completely rethought and simplified to allow the visitors to find right away what they were looking for. A colour scheme by discpline, based on the FEI discipline pictogrammes, along with straightforward menus also facilitate the navigation within the website which already includes no less than 400 pages. The latest FEI internal developments such as the FEI calendar database and the extensive Olympic disciplines results search tool were integrated in the new website. More space has been dedicated to the Technical Committees in order to inform the equestrian community about the latest events in their specific field. During the Olympic Games, the News section was entirely dedicated to the developments at the Markopoulo equestrian centre featuring real time news and stories. The contribution of the Heads of the FEI departments who were instrumental in ensuring a consistent approach to all the facets of the sport and all those who offered their support and sound advice to the new www.horsesport.org should be acknowledged.

Notes to the financial statements 1. These financial statements are subject to approval by the FEI General Assembly. 2. FEI receives in the year of the Olympic Summer Games a contribution from the International Olympic Committee (IOC). It is considered that these proceeds, which are only received once every four years, represent a core financing of FEI both for the year of the Games and the succeeding three years. Starting in 2004, a change in accounting for this contribution has been made to show these amounts as operating revenues over the 4 years of the Olympic quadrenium. This contribution is applied initially to the IOC Contribution Fund and is attributed to revenues in 4 equal annual amounts commencing in the year of the Games. 3. Designated funds represent funds which require internal approval for their use. 4. Operating funds are those funds of the FEI that have not been designated for any particular purpose and that are freely available for the use of FEI. 5. The financial statements are audited by PriceWaterhouseCoopers, Lausanne, Switzerland.

* not applicable. Used to show that no international events were organised, either because the NF did not exist or was not affiliated to the FEI. (1) The provisional recognition of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (MKD) was accepted by the FEI Bureau during its meeting held on 26 - 27 April 2003 in Madrid (ESP). Formal recognition was granted at the 2004 General Assembly. (2) In 2003, Yugoslavia changed its name to become Serbia and Montenegro (SCG). The Yugoslavian NF ceased to be a member of the FEI in 1993. It was formally reaffiliated at the 2002 General Assembly.
