Horse sport models new plan on Olympic programme

September 15, 2011

FEI President Princess Haya chaired the organisation's inaugural Solidarity Committee meeting at the FEI Headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland late last month.

FEI Solidarity, which is modelled on the successful Olympic Solidarity programme, aims to assist National Federations - especially those which have the greatest need -by way of financial, technical, consultancy and communication support.

It also includes all current development projects and programmes.

A three-year FEI Solidarity plan will be established in the coming months and will include procedures for applications for FEI Solidarity projects and programmes, evaluation criteria and decision-making process as well as communication tools.

Two new full-time FEI Solidarity Officers, based in the FEI Headquarters, will be recruited shortly.

FEI Solidarity funds were allocated to specific projects and it was agreed that all future applications must be forwarded to the FEI Solidarity Department, formerly the FEI Coaching Department, through the National Federations.

The deadline for submission of applications for each following year will be 1 July of the previous year. A special timeline for 2012 applications will be set up at the Committee's next meeting which will take place during the FEI General Assembly in November in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

FEI Solidarity was established in May 2011.
