FEI Calendar Applications 2023

FEI Calendar Applications for 2023 are now open. If you wish to hold an International (FEI) event during 2023, you will need to fill out the application form and return it to Equestrian Australia (EA) by 5pm Monday 1st August 2022 .

The application form contains all the fields that EA require for the uploading of information onto the FEI Calendar. Please ensure you enter all categories of FEI competition that you will be running. 

A schedule of fees for 2023 listing the costs involved with running an FEI event is yet to be confirmed. The 2022 costs can be found below in the attached document:

  1. FEI Calendar Fee: The calendar fee is payable for listing an event on the official FEI Calendar. Please note that in 2021 & 2022 the Calendar was only charged if the event ran. We will not know if this is the case in 2023 until after the 2022 FEI General Assembly (usually held in November). Otherwise, usually this fee is non-refundable even if the event is cancelled. All Calendar fees will be charged to the OC after EA has been invoiced by the FEI. 
  2. Other FEI Fees: The other FEI fees listed on the attached document are indicative prices. Due to exchange fluctuations, it is difficult for Equestrian Australia to predict the CHF/AUD rate with any degree of certainty.  It has been deemed equitable to invoice any post event fees at the rate of CHF/AUD on the date the FEI invoice Equestrian Australia. 
  3. There is an additional Administration Fee of $AUD 250 for all disciplines except Jumping. 

All applications need to be returned by 5pm Monday 1st August 2022. The dates will then be sent to the relevant National Discipline Committee for approval prior to being submitted to the FEI. 

There will be no exceptions made to this closing date, as per the FEI requirements, and any late applications will incur the FEI late fee. Although this fee was waived in 2021 & 2022, we would not expect that these fees to be waived again, and the fees are substantial (CHF 1,000 for higher level events and CHF 300 for lower level events). We will know after the 2022 FEI General Assembly (usually held in November), whether this will be waived for 2023. 

The application form below can be sent via email to [email protected] - Sport Services Officer. Please ensure all contact details noted on the application form are correct and if the person of contact for the event changes please notify EA immediately.
