Efforts to resolve the problems in endurance are gathering pace, with the FEI announcing “concrete steps” to bring about change, including Dubai-sourced funding for the recently announced special task force.
Changes announced today include a sponsorship reshuffle affecting the upcoming FEI Alltech World Equestrian Games.
The FEI has provided more details over the special task force aimed at finding practical solutions to bring the endurance controversy to an end.
The issue has split the endurance riding community over drug infractions and welfare concerns in the sport centred on the FEI Group VII nations of Dubai, Bahrain and Qatar.
National federations on both sides of the Atlantic have raised the possibility of a breakaway group unless the FEI can rein in the problems, including what some view as the cavalier approach to endurance rules taken by some competitors and some officials.
