EEF message on unauthorized training methods

May 9 2024 | General

“A fair equestrian sport embodies principles of integrity, respect, and welfare for both the horse and the rider. It involves a level playing field which is characterised by honesty and horsemanship, which prioritize the well-being of the horse above all else. The true essence of the sport lies not just in winning, but in the pursuit of excellence with integrity and compassion.”

With these words, published by Theo Ploegmakers, president of the European Equestrian Federation (EEF) sets a new tone in the equestrian world as a whole. This very much resonates with the current mission of FEIF to keep horse welfare on the top of the agenda. Click on the button to read the whole of the president’s statement.
