As Rockingham International Horse Trials is an affiliated FEI and BE event we must follow the rules for vaccinations as they state them. This goes for all horses on site, whether competing in the eventing classes or other arena competitions.
NATIONAL COMPETITORS – As per BE rulebook 10.2.1
Also applying for Pony Club, Riding Club, Arena Eventing & BYEH competitors.
No Horse may take part in a BE National event (which includes entering competition stables) unless it has current vaccination against equine influenza which complies with the following conditions:
INTERNATIONAL COMPETITORS – as per BE Rulebook 10.3
All horses intending to participate in FEI competitions must have at least received an initial primary course of vaccinations, given between 12 and 92 days apart. A first booster injection must be given within 7 months after the date of administration of the second primary dose, with at least annual boosters given subsequently.
No vaccination must have been administered within the previous seven days before the commencement of competition or entry to FEI Stables. Any horse entering the FEI stable area at a FEI competition MUST be vaccinated in accordance with the current FEI Rules.
Members are therefore advised to check their horses vaccination dates carefully before applying for FEI passports and entering FEI events.
If the Horse is scheduled to take part in an FEI competition, the last booster must have been given within 6 months and 21 days of arrival at the FEI event (The 21-day window has been provided to enable vaccination requirements to fit with the competition schedule).
FOR STABLING, PLEASE NOTE – Under the new FEI regulations a BE Competing Horse and an FEI Competing Horse may not be stabled together unless the following is adhered to:-
If you are entering horses into both BE and FEI classes and wish all your horses to be stabled together, and you can adhere to the bullet points above, please email Jane Rudd at TheEquestrianPA@gmail.com to advise her accordingly. If you don’t your BE and FEI horses will be stabled separately.
