ENDURANCE COMMITTEE MEETING IN LA BAULE (FRA)

The Endurance Committee, welcoming its two new Members Pierre Cazes (FRA) and Allan Renner (AUS), met for its annual meeting at the occasion of the La Baule Endurance CEIO in France.

The meeting dealt with a wide range of topics including the appointment of officials for the various 2005 and 2006 Championships, the appointment of an Endurance Steward General and the, soon to be introduced, system to ?Star Rate? all Endurance Officials.

The main part of the meeting was taken up by the extensive review of the Championship qualification criteria for horses and riders which was the subject of a ruling over the existing wording, issued by the FEI in March. National Federations had been requested to provide input ahead of this meeting and the suggestions received from seven Federations were considered as part of this process.

Additionally the committee continued its examination of the introduction of a qualification system for Nations wishing to take part in World and Continental Championships.

Two proposals for Nation Qualification were discussed and these, together with the new individual qualification criteria will be circulated to all Endurance National Federations for their comment in the near future.

The Committee members expressed their appreciation to the Organising Committee who generously provided the facilities and support to enable the meeting to take place at La Baule.
