STABLE SECURITY / STEWARDING AT INTERNATIONAL EVENTS
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO ENSURE IMPLEMENTATION OF RV
1. ACCESS TO STABLE AREA
For an optimal stable security, the stables must be completely enclosed within a suitably restrictive
perimeter (stable area) which will act both as a deterrent to the admission of unauthorised persons
and to the exit of horses. The areas must be sufficiently large to allow horses to be evacuated from
the stables in an emergency, but still remain within the confines of the perimeter. However, several
disciplines allow in specific situations a lower level of stable security (see discipline rules).
Whenever possible the stable area must include only stables - lorries, caravans, etc., should not be
permitted within the areas unless specifically needed as accommodation for horses and/or grooms.
Access to stables must be limited to those persons indicated in Art. 1005.2.5.2. it is essential that
the official issuing authorised access be a responsible person of seniority within the Organising
2. CONTROL OF ACCESS
A control system must operate at all entrance gates so that there is an efficient and reliable method
of identifying those who enter and leave the stable area at any time.
Extra vigilance must be used in establishing the identity of persons and reasons for entering the
stables during the night time hours.
3 STEWARDING OF STABLE AREA
At least one stable steward directly responsible to the Chief Steward must be present or readily
available in the vicinity of the stable area 24 hours a day during the entire duration of the event.
Deputies as required may assist him. The steward/deputies must regularly patrol the stable area,
without establishing any predetermined pattern, to discourage any form of illegal practices or
abuses to horses. Any misdemeanours must immediately be reported to the stable steward who
must, in turn, report to the Chief Steward.
The duty of the stewards is therefore to safeguard the welfare of the horses and to prevent any
form of illegal practices.
It is appreciated that grooms wish to remain with their horses during the night. Only grooms duly
registered with the OC are permitted to do so.
The Person Responsible must ensure that his/her grooms, or any other authorised persons with
access to his/her horses, are familiar with the security and stewarding procedures operating at the
5. MOVEMENT THROUGHOUT EVENT GROUNDS
Movement of horses between the stables, practice, grazing and main arena must be strictly
controlled. The optimum layout for Jumping and Dressage disciplines is attached. It is appreciated
that flexibility will be required depending on the requirements of other disciplines.
6. STEWARDING OF PRACTICE ARENA
The Chief Steward must ensure that each practice arena is adequately stewarded at all times that
it/they are officially open. He must also ensure that all practice arenas are subject to random control
when they are officially closed.
7. GRAZING AREA
It is recommended that a grazing area be provided at all outdoor events and that this be subject to
random control. If available, it must be used exclusively for grazing horses or walking them in hand.
The Foreign Judge/TD at events will be specifically asked to check that the relevant requirements
are met, as reasonably as can be expected depending on the discipline, and to clearly indicate any
shortcomings, following which consideration may be given to altering the category of the event in
WELFARE OF THE HORSE
CODE OF CONDUCT
1. At all stages during the preparation and training of competition horses, welfare must
take precedence over all other demands. This includes good horse management,
training methods, farriery and tack, and transportation.
2. Horses and competitors must be fit, competent and in good health before they are
allowed to compete. This encompasses medication use, surgical procedures that
threaten welfare or safety, pregnancy in mares and the misuse of aids.
3. Events must not prejudice horse welfare. This involves paying careful attention to
the competition areas, ground surfaces, weather conditions, stabling, site safety and
fitness of the horse for onward travel after the event.
4. Every effort must be made to ensure that horses receive proper attention after they
have competed and that they are treated humanely when their competition careers
are over. This covers proper veterinary care, competition injuries, euthanasia and
5. The FEI urges all involved with the sport to attain the highest levels of education in
their areas of expertise.
