Using the FEI HorseApp

What is the FEI HorseApp?

The FEI HorseApp contains various modules to help you manage your FEI-registered horses, including traceability features and monitoring of horse health at FEI events. The app can be downloaded  from the Apple Store or from the Google Play Store, and is available to athletes, national federations, vets, grooms, owners, Endurance trainers and organising committees. The content of the app is specific to the type of user, and its use is referred to in both the FEI General Regulations and the FEI Veterinary Regulations (available below).

In accordance with the FEI Veterinary Regulations 2022, a number of Horse Health Requirements have been put in place to protect FEI horses and global equestrian sports from the consequences of infectious diseases being transmitted before, during and after FEI Events. This provides reassurance of the high health of equestrian sport horses to global, continental and national veterinary authorities and organisations, and will maintain and further improve the conditions for international movement of sport horses.

More information can be found on the FEI website : FEI Horse Health Requirements

  FEI General Regulations        

FEI Veterinary Regulations

What does this mean for me?

Anyone competing in FEI competitions must use the FEI HorseApp to upload documents, record horse temperatures and certify the health status of their horse(s). All athletes, grooms, vets, officials, organising committees, Endurance trainers and owners need to be aware of the Horse Health Requirements and they must use the FEI HorseApp to fulfil these requirements in accordance with the FEI 2022 Veterinary Regulations for all FEI events both in the UK and Worldwide.  Violations and sanctions are in place for failure to submit the correct data on time and sanctions are connected to the horse profile and not the athlete. This is important to note in the event of a horse being ridden by multiple riders. All sanctions will be sent to the Person Responsible so it is vital that they submit all the required data. There are different views and different types of data to be captured within the App depending on who you are.

FEI Horseapp for organisers

This version of the app allows Organising Committee Members  to:

  • Check-out horses from their event

It's compulsory for the organising committee to check-out all horses leaving a FEI event to help manage horse movement and traceability. You must only check-out a horse if/when they are leaving the FEI show/venue. This should be done on the day they leave when you give the horse' identification document back to the athlete or owner. A derogation may be given by the FEI Veterinary Department to allow horses competing in CCI4*-S events to be stabled away from the event venue. The horse’s location must be recorded in the FEI HorseApp to permit stewarding and EADCM testing at the location in which the horse is stabled. Please contact Jen Ancliff to request this on jen.ancliff@bef.co.uk.

You can instantly find the horse byusing the HorseApp to scan the bar code on a FEI Passport or Recognition Card or searching by FEI ID number/name. FEI horses can be checked out in a few simple clicks to help ensure the traceability of FEI horses should a disease outbreak occur.

 

what are the sanctions for failing to use the horseApp?

Violations and sanctions are linked to Horses and not Athletes. If athletes share horses, the sanctions will remain on the Horse profile and will be issued accordingly. Athletes can see the level of sanction at which the horse is (i.e how many violations have occured for this horse) and it is vital that each rider submits the required information.

Sanctions are reset a year after the first sanction was issued.
