The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) will form a working group to thoroughly review Annex XIII of the Dressage Stewards Manual, which deals with training methods.

The composition of the working group has not yet been finalized, but it will include representatives from the International Dressage Riders Club and the International Dressage Trainers Club, the FEI steward general representing the International Dressage Officials Club, a veterinary expert, and a representative of the FEI Dressage Committee.

The decision came at an all-day meeting of the dressage committee and stakeholders, held Oct. 5 at the FEI headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland. It was agreed that the group would aim to finalize its conclusions in the coming months for presentation to the FEI Bureau for approval.

Ingmar De Vos, FEI president, welcomed representatives from the dressage stakeholders clubs and the European Equestrian Federation to today’s session, which was chaired by FEI Dressage Committee Chair Frank Kemperman
