Standings for Thailand Showjumping Championships 2013/14 Qualifier & Open (Q1-Q7; updated on 28.4.2014)

Updated on 22 April 2014 via Thailand Equestrian Federation

FEI Dressage Educative Event - Pilot Project 2014 in Thailand, 29 April - 2 May 2014

For years, FEI has been placing the one-world competition so-called "FEI World Dressage Challenge" that serves as an Educational purpose by linking the competition with the coaching. The system developed specifically for developing countries to give the less experienced Dressage riders who, under normal circumstances, cannot take part in international Dressage competitions and live in the more remote countries, the opportunity to compete internationally without having to leave their own country. The riders can then compete and compare results with other riders from the rest of the world. 

However, as per year 2014, FEI Solidarity came up with the new pilot project to improve the Dressage Development in those developing countries.  “The FEI Dressage Educative Event - Pilot Project 2014” has been introduced with even more specific and much useful concepts as it aims to conduct research for the development of the World Dressage Challenge on the issues i.e. how the FEI and the World Dressage Challenge can have a more lasting impact on the development of the sport – athletes, coaches and judges. 

The event will include the 3-day clinic with 8 Judges, 8 Coaches plus 24 rider/horse combinations (Preliminary-Elementary / Medium / Advanced-PSG levels) and also the training competitions on the last day which will be pretty much based on the FEI World Dressage Challenge tests (Preliminary, Elementary, Medium, Advanced and Prix St. Georges).

The FEI Dressage Educative Event - Pilot Project 2014 will be evaluated in 4 countries during a mouth period, including Indonesia (14-17 April), Malaysia (19-22 April), Singapore (24-27 April) and Thailand (29April-2 May).  FEI has appointed Mrs. Alison King HKG as the Judge for this event alongside with Mrs. Larasati Gading INA as a Dressage Coach.

11th World University Equestrian Championship postponed to November 2014

Monday, March 10, 2014

The local Organising Committee of the 2014 FISU World University Equestrian Championship has been informed by the Emirates Equestrian Federation (EEF) that all show jumping activities have been suspended by the Emirates Racing Authority until further notice, following an epidemic of equine influenza within the show jumping horse population. Given that FISU abides by the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) veterinary regulations, the health and safety of all horses is a primary concern. Therefore, the FISU WUC Equestrian that was originally scheduled for 25-28 March, will not take place as planned on these dates and will be postponed. More information will be given about new dates on the event in the upcoming days. For more information, please contact the FISU World University Championships Department (
