On March 13 and 14, Danny Warrington and Jonathan Holling will host a special LandSafe Clinic at Holling’s farm in Ocala, Florida.

Ask horse owners to name their most-feared horse diseases, and chances are equine herpesvirus, or EHV, will be on the list. With the competition season underway, it’s important for equestrians to be vigilant and take preventive measures, from vaccination to biosecurity.

Following continued monitoring of concussion research and Head Injury Assessment Guidelines and consultation with healthcare professions, the Chief Medical Officers for BE and the FEI and British Eventing Officials and Organisers, BE has implemented the rule that any competitor falling during their dressage test or on course of the show jumping or cross country phase will be eliminated and not allowed to continue on course.

Due to the recent news regarding positive test results of samples collected from three Eventing Riders competing in the CIC3* at the Ocala Jockey Club International 3- Day Event this past November in Reddick, Florida; the ERA of NA strongly suggests all equestrian athletes (and their support personnel) competing in any FEI competitions, regardless of the level, familiarize themselves with WADA Rules and Policies.

The time has come to take a stronger stance on the usage of frangible technology in the sport of eventing. We as the leaders of the sport have the moral obligation to say that the time for use of all currently available safety technology is now. With that in mind, the USEA Cross-Country Safety Sub-Committee strongly recommends that the FEI mandates rather than strongly recommends that all open rail fences, gates, oxers and oxer corners must be built using reverse frangible technology. The time is now.
