The International Equestrian Organizers Alliance (IEOA) has become the first of the former Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) associate members to sign a memorandum of understanding (MOU), following the removal of the associate member status from the FEI Statutes at the 2012 General Assembly.

The MOU, which was signed by IEOA President Peter Bollen and FEI Secretary General Ingmar De Vos, formally acknowledges the IEOA as an organization recognized by the FEI.
