    [RC] What the FEI is doing about Jerez - Maryanne Stroud Gabbani

     The FEI Endurance Committee held a special meeting on 29 October in
    London (GBR) primarily to discuss the problems that arose during and
    following the World Equestrian Games Endurance Event. They were joined
    at the meeting by Prof. Leo Jeffcott Chairman of the FEI Veterinary
    Committee and the FEI Secretary General Dr Bo Helander.
     As the files on the two horses that died have been sent to the Judicial
    Committee the committee did not discuss these specific cases, however
    they did agree that many aspects of the WEG Endurance were poorly
    organised and that much more control was required for future
     The Committee further discussed methods to protect the welfare of
    horses competing at major rides and agreed on a number of new proposals
    that will be presented to the FEI Bureau at its meeting next week in
    Moscow (RUS).
