STABLE SECURITY/STEWARDING AT INTERNATIONAL EVENTS

 
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO ENSURE IMPLEMENTATION OF VRs ART. 1005.2.5
 
1.      ACCESS TO STABLE AREA
         For an optimal stable security, the stables must be completely enclosed within a suitably restrictive perimeter (stable area) which will act both as a deterrent to the admission of unauthorised persons and to the exit of horses. The area must be sufficiently large to allow horses to be evacuated from the stables in an emergency, but still remain within the confines of the perimeter. However, several disciplines allow in specific situations a lower level of stable security (see discipline rules).
 
         Whenever possible the stable area must include only stables ‑ lorries, caravans, etc., should not be permitted within the area unless specifically needed as accommodation for horses/ponies and/or grooms.
 
         Access to stables must be limited to those persons indicated in VRs Art. 1005.2.5.2. It is essential that the official issuing authorised access be a responsible person of seniority within the Organising Committee.
 
2.      CONTROL OF ACCESS
         A control system must operate at all entrance gates so that there is an efficient and reliable method of identifying those who enter and leave the stable area at any time.
 
         Extra vigilance must be used in establishing the identity of persons and reasons for entering the stables during the night.
 
3.      STEWARDING OF STABLE AREA
         At least one stable steward directly responsible to the Chief Steward must be present or readily available in the vicinity of the stable area 24 hours a day during the entire duration of the event. Deputies as required may assist him. The steward/deputies must regularly patrol the stable area, without establishing any predetermined pattern, to discourage any form of illegal practices or abuses to horses.  Any misdemeanours must immediately be reported to the stable steward who must, in turn, report to the Chief Steward.
 
         The duty of the stewards is therefore to safeguard the welfare of the horses and to prevent any form of illegal practices.
 
4.      GROOMS
         It is appreciated that grooms wish to remain with their horses during the night. Only grooms duly registered with the OC are permitted to do so.
 
         The Person Responsible must ensure that his/her grooms, or any other authorised persons with access to his/her horses, are familiar with the security and stewarding procedures operating at the event attended.
 
5.      MOVEMENT THROUGHOUT EVENT GROUNDS
         Movement of horses between the stables, practice, grazing and main arena must be strictly controlled. The optimum layout for Jumping and Dressage disciplines is attached. It is appreciated that flexibility will be required depending on the requirements of other disciplines.
6.      STEWARDING OF PRACTICE ARENA
         The Chief Steward must ensure that each practice arena is adequately stewarded at all times that it/they are officially open.  He must also ensure that all practice arenas are subject to random control when they are officially closed.
 
7.      GRAZING AREA
         It is recommended that a grazing area be provided at all outdoor events and that this be subject to random control. If available, horses/ponies must only be grazed or walked in hand within this area.
 
The Foreign Judge/TD at events will be specifically asked to check that the relevant requirements are met, as reasonably as can be expected depending on the discipline, and to clearly indicate any shortfalls, following which consideration may be given to altering the category of the event in future.


 
THE FEI CODE OF CONDUCT
FOR
THE WELFARE OF THE HORSE
 
 
The Fédération Equestre International (FEI) expects all those involved in international equestrian sport to adhere to the FEI’s Code of Conduct and to acknowledge and accept that at all times the welfare of the horse must be paramount and must never be subordinated to competitive or commercial influences.
 
1.            At all stages during the preparation and training of competition horses, welfare must take precedence over all other demands. This includes good horse management, training methods, farriery and tack, and transportation.
2.            Horses and competitors must be fit, competent and in good health before they are allowed to compete. This encompasses medication use, surgical procedures that threaten welfare or safety, pregnancy in mares and the misuse of aids.
 
3.            Events must not prejudice horse welfare. This involves paying careful attention to the competition areas, ground surfaces, weather conditions, stabling, site safety and fitness of the horse for onward travel after the event.
4.            Every effort must be made to ensure that horses receive proper attention after they have competed and that they are treated humanely when their competition careers are over. This covers proper veterinary care, competition injuries, euthanasia and retirement.
 
5.            The FEI urges all involved with the sport to attain the highest levels of education in their areas expertise.
 
 
 
A full copy of this Code can be obtained from the Fédération Equestre Internationale, Avenue Mon-Repos 24, CH-1000, Lausanne 5, Switzerland. Telephone: +41 21 310 47 47.  The Code is available in English, French, Spanish, German and Arabic. ­The Code is also available on the FEI’s website: www.horsesport.org.
