Guatemala City.- Fernando Paiz, President of the Organizing Committee of the 4th Edition of the Magdalena Endurance Challenge on 24-25th of April 2010, is also in charge of the organization of the International FEI Endurance Course for Judges and Vet’s to be held in Guatemala on the 22 and 23rd of April 2010. He informs that this is an excellent opportunity for judges and veterinarians of the Central American region to assist and acquire credits as qualified judges and veterinarians according to FEI standards.
Currently there are very few FEI qualified judges and Vets authorized to be directors of FEI Courses. Guatemala has the luck that for this course some of the most distinguished FEI Course Directors will be present. Ruth Carlson is the FEI Chair of the Endurance Technical Committee. Also in charge is Dr. Verocay, FEI Veterinarian from Uruguay, who speaks Spanish.
