The German Endurance Federation sent a letter to the FEI regarding international endurance horse welfare issues.
The letter states:
"We- the Association of German Endurance Riders and Endurance Horse Drivers, Verein Deutscher Distanzreiter und -Fahrer e.V. – hereby disassociate ourselves from every incident connected with endurance rides in which our equine partner is not treated strictly according to the basic standards of animal welfare.
We urge the FEI, using every available means, that all respective incidents worldwide are thoroughly investigated and that the resulting findings are immediately made public and that strict penalties are imposed on those responsible.
It is of paramount importance that endurance riding and animal welfare go hand in hand if we are to ensure the future of our sport."
