Horses will only be permitted to leave these venues when they are in possession of an official health certificate from the local Veterinary Authorities. Any horses leaving these venues without this documentation will be blocked on the FEI Database. It is also illegal to transport a horse without an official health certificate.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eOliva Nova (ESP) had already advised the FEI this afternoon that it has decided to cancel the rest of its scheduled competitions in the Mediterranean Equestrian Tour III. Opglabbeek (BEL) has also informed the FEI that it has cancelled its events in March.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eA number of countries, including France, have already cancelled all their events to minimise transmission of the virus.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe decision, which covers events in France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Italy, Austria, Poland, Netherlands, Germany and Slovakia, has been made in accordance with FEI General Regulations Article 112.3, which state: \u003cem\u003eThe Secretary General shall have the authority to remove any Competition and/or Event from the Calendar if justified circumstances relating to a Competition or the Event are established\u003c/em\u003e.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“This was not an easy decision to block events in mainland Europe, particularly after the major disruption to the FEI Calendar caused by the Covid-19 pandemic”, FEI Secretary General Sabrina Ibáñez said, “but this EHV-1 outbreak is probably the most serious we have had in Europe for many decades and our decision is based on clearly identified epidemiological risk factors. \u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“This strain of EHV-1 is particularly aggressive and has already caused equine fatalities and a very large number of severe clinical cases. We need to keep our horses safe.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“We are also aware that a large number of horses left the venue in Valencia without an official health certificate, meaning they had an unknown health status. Some horses were already sick, and the risk of transmission from these horses is a major concern.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“Cancelling these competitions in mainland Europe, with the exception of the ongoing Jumping Tours in the Iberian Peninsula and Italy, limits the number of horses travelling internationally and therefore reduces the likelihood of this very serious virus being transmitted on an increasingly wider scale. We also strongly recommend that the affected member Federations should also cancel their national events.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e“We are very conscious of the fact that this is a very stressful and distressing time, and that this is potentially hugely disruptive for those athletes aiming for their Minimum Eligibility Requirements (MERs) or confirmation results for Tokyo, but we are looking at ways to alleviate that in order to assist athlete/horse combinations in getting their MERs or confirmation results once the events in mainland Europe are allowed to resume.”\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe FEI is conscious that some athletes have already arrived on competition venues or are en route, and is directly contacting all impacted athletes entered in Events between now and 28 March 2021.\u003c/p\u003e","PostingTime":"02 March 2021 12:26","PostingUserName":"Lindsay Wilson","CanMarkAsRead":false,"HasBeenRead":false},{"ID":98,"Title":"EHV-1 Outbreak in Valencia","Text":"\u003cp\u003eThe following text is from a note received from the BEF:\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eYou will be aware that there has been an outbreak of EHV-1 (neurological form) at the CES Valencia Spring Tour in Spain.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe FEI have been working with the National Federations who have had athletes competing in Valencia on what they have described as probably the most serious EHV-1 outbreak in Europe for decades. A large-scale veterinary operation is now underway in Valencia, being supported by the Spanish, French and German Federations to monitor and treat the affected horses. The FEI have blocked all horses who were at the venue from making entries at this current time and are liaising with athletes at venue and with those who had already departed to trace the horses no longer on site. There are now confirmed related outbreaks in France, Belgium and Germany. I have attached the most recent FEI update for your further information.\u003c/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAt the current time, 150 horses remain at the venue, where unfortunately four horses have now died and 84 on site are currently showing symptoms. 11 further horses are being treated at clinics offsite. In the last couple of hours, the French Equitation Federation and the French Hippic Society have suspended all national and international shows and the Sentower venue in Belgium has also cancelled all competition for the next two weeks.
