An official is a person who oversees a competition, or aspect thereof, by applying the rules of the sport. This may be directly relating to judgments on performance, time, score and/or upholding the principles of fair play and welfare of the horse.  EA trains and accredits Officials at National level across a variety of disciplines.  EA also work with the FEI in regards to accreditation and training of international level officials. Officials play a key role in ensuring the spirit of the game and/or event is observed by all and ensure that all athletes develop through their chosen sport and guarantee the competition is conducted within the spirit of the rules. It is essential that officials provide all people of varying ages the best possible sporting experience, which will ensure their continued participation and development in sport.

FEI Campus 

The FEI has launched FEI Campus in June 2017. It is a unique and free e-learning gateway for everyone with a love of horses and equestrian sport, wherever they are in the world.

One of the key goals of this important development tool is to make it less expensive for current and future FEI officials from across the world to get education, meaning that they will be able to follow courses without the costs of travelling and accommodation. Click below to access the FEI Campus.
