RIDER CO-ORDINATORS AT CCI/CICS
Attachment No 4
Every international event, with the exception of Championship Team events, Organisers will need to appoint a ‘Rider Co-Ordinator’ for their event.
This important initiative was proposed by the Professional Event Riders Association (PERA) and approved by the FEI Eventing Committee and is intended to improve communication in general between riders and officials. It was felt the system worked very well in 2000.
The objective is to establish the Rider Co-Ordinators as the focus when serious concerns are expressed by riders. The idea is for the Co-Ordinator to meet with the Ground Jury and/or Technical Delegate everyday (starting on the first day of dressage) to discuss any rider concerns over fences, ground conditions, roping & course distance etc (this is particularly important at the start of events).
The Rider Co-Ordinator will be chosen from a list of suitably qualified riders (where possible with Three & Four* experience) and be entered to ride at the event.
In the past, the channels of communication between riders and officials have not always been clear. It has been easy to be ‘wise after the event’, and hopefully this initiative will improve co-operation between all parties making it possible to be ‘wise at the event’, particularly for the welfare of the horses and safety of riders.
## Stubben SEQ Soft Touch Spur Ruling ##
After some time requesting a ruling from FEI regarding these spurs, we have received confirmation from our Steward General that these spurs are permitted in Dressage, SJ and Cross Country. HOWEVER similar spurs with a vertical rowel is ONLY allowed in Dressage.
DUMMY spurs NO SHANK in the below photo are ILLEGAL in all phases of Eventing.
