[RC] FEI endurance task force - Leonard.Liesens

Title: FEI endurance task force

160km in 5 stages
no drastic changes
metabolic parameters revisited
dedicated trotting lane for horses needing a re-trotting
very few answers from riders to the FEI questionnaire
that's what we can expect from the revolution
anyway, it is very sad that no riders were making part of the task force, only vets, officials and chefs d'equipe

from 21 to 24 February, to agree on the final recommendations for the
new FEI Endurance Rules for 2009 and onwards.Far reaching changes are
recommended by the Task Force that has consulted widely with all those
involved in the discipline over the last year following their creation
immediately after the FEI World Endurance Forum held in Paris, February
2007.FEI Technical Committee members will now have an opportunity to
review the Task Force proposals ahead of their annual meeting scheduled
for early April in Switzerland. At this meeting the Committee will add
their own comments and input to the proposed new format. The detailed
proposals from the Task Force, together with the full input of the
Technical Committee, will then be circulated to all FEI Federations.
Full details will also be published on the FEI Web site at that
time.Feedback from National Federations will then be requested and such
feedback, where appropriate, will be incorporated into the final
proposed FEI Endurance Rules for 2009. This final proposal will then be
circulated to all FEI NFs for last review.Formal approval of the new
rules will be carried out at the FEI General Assembly in Argentina in
November and, if so approved, will come into force in January 2009.The
