Key Dressage Decisions at 2012 FEI Spring Bureau Meeting
The FEI Bureau’s spring meeting took place at FEI Headquarters in Lausanne (SUI) on 8-9 June. The main focus of the meeting was to agree on proposed modifications to general rules, regulations and FEI Statutes before submission to National Federations for consultation and feedback, prior to voting at the FEI General Assembly 2012.
The meeting opened with a minute’s silence for Dr Craig Ferrell, FEI Medical Committee Chair, and Jane Goldsmith, Member of the FEI Para-Dressage Committee, who passed away recently.
Other focal points of the meeting were: to approve the allocation of Continental Championships and Finals and to approve modifications proposed by the Technical Committees on 2013 series rules in Jumping, Dressage and Para-Equestrian Dressage, Driving and Vaulting.
