FEI PRESS RELEASE
Lausanne (SUI), 8 January 2014
 
 
Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping calendar for 2014 announced
 
The 2014 calendar for the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping series has been announced by the FEI Jumping Committee following its first teleconference meeting of the year.
 
The number of qualifiers for the 2014 season has been limited to 20, with eight in both Europe Division 1 and Europe Division 2. The North and Central America & Caribbean League now has three qualifiers, including a new CSIO at Coapexpan (MEX) from 7-11 May. The season opens at Al-Ain (UAE), the single qualifier in the Middle East League, with the CSIO5* running from 5-7 February.
 
The Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping Final will once again be held at the Real Club de Polo of Barcelona (ESP), venue for the equestrian events at the Barcelona Olympic Games in 1992.
 
“Following the success of last year’s inaugural Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup series and the fantastic Final in Barcelona, we are looking forward to another fabulous Furusiyya season starting at Al-Ain in the United Arab Emirates next month,” FEI Jumping Committee Chair John Madden said.
 
“We are planning 20 qualifiers building up to the Final, which will once again be hosted in Barcelona, and we owe a huge debt of gratitude to HH Prince Faisal and the Saudi Equestrian Fund for their belief in and support of the series. Without that support, the revitalisation of the Nations Cup to create the brilliant series that we now have would simply not have been possible.
 
“Regretfully, at the time of the 31 December deadline for declaration of participation, we were informed by the German National Federation that Aachen was unable to meet the commercial requirements and therefore would not be part of the Furusiyya series in 2014. Despite the best efforts of all parties, with discussions continuing right up to yesterday, it was not possible to resolve this matter.”
 
Following the news that Aachen will not be part of the 2014 series, Lummen (BEL) has been moved into Europe Division 1 to make up the full complement of eight events in that division.
 
Further to the decision of the Jumping Committee, FEI Headquarters will now finalise the agreements with the National Federations and organising committees.
 
Details of FEI TV’s live coverage for the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping series will be announced following final confirmation of the calendar at the beginning of February.

Award voor Sportpersoonlijkheid 2013 (postuum): een eerbetoon aan Francis Michielsens

Dit jaar verloren we een monument uit de Belgische paardensport. Francis Michielsens (72) was tijdens zijn lange carrière onder andere voorzitter van de Koninklijke Belgische Ruitersportfederatie, internationaal jumpingjurylid, lid van de FEI-jumpingcommissie en jurylid op de Olympische Spelen en talrijke FEI-kampioenschappen over de hele wereld.

Hij startte zijn carrière als nationaal jurylid in 1967 en werd internationaal jurylid in 1977. Hij zetelde vele jaren in het bestuur van de KBRSF-jumpingcommissie en was voorzitter van de jumpingcommissie van de Vlaamse Liga Paardensport. Vorig jaar gaf hij de fakkel door aan een nieuwe en jongere generatie, maar backstage was hij nog altijd een belangrijke promotor van eerlijke sport en had hij de leiding over vele nationale en internationale official opleidingen.

Hij zette zich ook vele jaren actief in voor de opleiding van nieuwe en jonge juryleden/officials en hij was een van de belangrijke promotors/stichters van het ISJC (Int. Show Jumping Officials Club).

VLP wil Francis dan ook nog eens in de bloemetjes zetten en hem de Award voor Sportpersoonlijkheid schenken als blijk van dank voor zijn inzet en bijdragen aan de paardenport! Zijn echtgenote Carine Van Gompel nam in zijn plaats de Award in ontvangst.

2013 Rule concerning Assistant Stewards  

The FEI will continue with the current system, allowing experienced National Stewards to act as Assistant Stewards, until the end of 2013.

However, as of that date, all Stewards who wish to act as an Assistant Steward will be required to have passed the FEI Level 1 exam and be on the list as an FEI Level 1 Steward.

The transitional period has been extended in view of providing the necessary time and opportunity for all concerned to attend a course.
Further to the adoption of the new provision mandating the use of properlyfastened protective headgear as of 1 January 2013, a sanction/penaltysystem has been decided. The Yellow Warning Card system already in placewill be used for those athletes who do not comply. A Yellow Warning Card will be given if an athlete is reminded that he or she needs to wear protective headgear and the athlete fails or refuses to comply after such reminder.

Dank U Pierre

voor alle hulp, medewerking en steun tijdens uw carrière als jurylid, steward en course-director.

De FOD Volksgezondheid verspreidt richtlijnen die de regelgeving rond de identificatie van paardachtigen verduidelijken. Bij de toepassing van de verplichte identificatie van paardachtigen stelden zich nogal wat concrete vragen:
  • Bij wie kan de eigenaar terecht om een onvolledig paspoort (bv. met een ontbrekende medische bijlage) te vervolledigen?
  • Wat als het paspoort van een paard verloren gaat?
  • Hoe gaan we om met paarden waarvoor ten laatste op 31.12.2009 een identificatieaanvraag werd ingediend, maar waarvoor nog geen paspoort werd afgeleverd?
  • Wat moet er gebeuren met paarden die niet beschikken over een EU-conform paspoort?
  • Hoe moeten we geïmporteerde paarden (van buiten de Europese Unie) behandelen?
  • Wat met een FEI-paspoort?
  • ...
Over deze en andere vragen werd overleg gepleegd met de Europese, de federale en de regionale administraties. Dit resulteerde in een aantal concrete antwoorden:
Laattijdige identificatie
In nogal wat gevallen zullen paarden uitgesloten worden uit de voedselketen. Bijvoorbeeld omdat ze niet tijdig geïdentificeerd werden aan de hand van een microchip, de registratie in de centrale gegevensbank en het afleveren van een paspoort.
Verlies van het paspoort
Het verlies van het paspoort kan een andere reden zijn om een paard uit te sluiten uit de voedselketen. Er wordt wel enige soepelheid aan de dag gelegd. Zo kan de uitsluiting voor stamboekpaarden waarvan het paspoort verloren ging onder bepaalde voorwaarden beperkt blijven tot zes maanden.
De aanwezigheid van het originele paspoort op de pensionstal
Ook voor het probleem van de pensionstallen die vaak niet konden beschikken over de originele paspoorten van de bij hen gestalde paarden, werd een oplossing gevonden. Het is nu voldoende dat de pensionhouder over een contract beschikt waarin staat waar het paspoort zich bevindt en eventueel een kopie van het paspoort voor handen heeft.

Wij vernemen zojuist het overlijden van Mr JEAN LEGAT. Hij was jaren actief als ruiter, internationaal pistebouwer, bureaulid KBRSF, chef d´equipe en de laatste jaren vooral als Voorzitter van tal van Appeal Committees tijdens de belangrijkste wedstrijden van ons land.

Hij werd 88 jaar.

FEI PRESS RELEASE 

International Jumping rider Jean-Claude Van Geenberghe (BEL / UKR), 46, passed away on Saturday 9 May while competing at an event in the Ukraine, where he had recently taken up residency.

Jean-Claude Van Geenberghe was widely known and respected on the international Jumping circuit, competing at the highest level.

 

His exceptional riding skills were first noted by his father Jacques, who not only provided him with suitable horses but, equally recognized the importance in investing in proper training by seeking the assistance of George Morris (USA), Henk Nooren (NED) and Gijs Van Heteren.

 

Jean Claude won the Belgian national championship three times. He was twice the winner - in 1987 and 1995 – of the Aachen (GER) Grand Prix, one of the world’s most prestigious competitions. He participated twice in the Olympic Games. He represented Belgium at the 1988 Games in Seoul, placing 16th individually. At the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong he competed for the Ukraine and placed 10th individually.

 

In addition to his competition career, Jean-Claude Van Geenberghe was involved in the development of the “Zilveren Spoor", the equestrian centre built by his father in Moorsele (BEL), making it one of the best riding facilities in Europe at which several international events are hosted yearly. The FEI European Jumping Championship for Children and the FEI European Pony Championships are scheduled to be held in Moorsele this summer.

 

Says FEI Director of Jumping John Roche, “Jean-Claude’s untimely death comes as a tremendous shock to all of us and creates a huge void in the equestrian world.  He was a great horsemen whose involvement, passion and dedication to the sport will be greatly missed. We all admired his talent and our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time.”

 

The funeral will take place on 19 May in Moorsele.

The following come into effect for Senior Championships and Games (Jumping)

from 1/1/2007 and for all other international Jumping events from 1/1/2009.

1. REQUIREMENTS FOR DISPLAY IN JUDGE’S BOX AND ON SCOREBOARDS

The following must be visible in the Judge’s box:

The net time (net time is the difference between the competitor’s start time

and the competitor’s finish time).

The time allowed.

Time penalties for exceeding the time allowed.

Time correction (6 seconds for obstacle demolished following a refusal).

The 6 second penalty is to be added immediately to the time when the

clock is restarted and the rider resumes his round.

Faults incurred on obstacles (Table A).

Faults converted into seconds and added immediately to the net time

(Table C).

The total time.

When a two round competition:

Round 2: Display of Penalties occurred in the 1st round

Round 2: Time 1st round if this is the time for placing

Round 2: Total time (time 1st and 2nd round) if this is the time for

placing

Round 2: Total penalties from both rounds.

Type of System Authorised

The connection of the timer to the photocells can be wireless. The timer is

connected to the downstream processing system by wire.

For Games and Championships and other events it is optional to have

photocells be connected by wire to a synchronised time-of-day timer.

For CSI 4* and CSIO 4* events and of a higher category a split-timing

system is obligatory.

2. GUIDELINES FOR OCS

An FEI “Timing Manual”, a specific information bulletin issued from time to time

as a supplement to the FEI rules on timing, will include set-up diagrams and all

details on timing that might not be fully described in the rules due to the intense

technical nature of the descriptions.

2.1 Technical Installations: Communications & Cabling

In all competitions, it is highly recommended that there be multiple hard-wire

connections between the start and finish photocells and the timing systems.

2.2 Timing Equipment

For all events in the FEI Calendar, electronic timers, photocells and wireless

transmission systems homologated by the FEI must be used. A list of these

approved devices will be published. Events using timing equipment other than

those on the homologated FEI list will not be considered for FEI evaluation.

Specifications and procedures for timing are more fully described in a separate

FEI Timing Booklet.

2.2.1 Electronic Timing

For Olympic Games, and World Championships, two synchronised

electronically isolated timing systems operating in time-of-day must

be used. One system will be designated system A (main system),

the other system B (back up system) prior to the beginning of the

event. The photocells for the respective systems at the start and

finish must be arrayed identically and be placed as close together as

physically possible, and in any case no more than 0,5 m apart.

All time of day times must be immediately and automatically

sequentially recorded on printed strips to at least the 1/1000th

(0.001) precision on dedicated directly attached or integrated

printers. Both systems must furnish time data to allow for the

calculation of net times by the mathematical comparison of each

competitor’s start time to finish time. The recorded times are

truncated to 1/100th second after calculation of the run time. The

FEDERATION

EQUESTRE

INTERNATIONALE

Requirements for Timing Equipment and Scoreboard page 3

final result for each rider’s round is expressed to 1/100th (0.01)

precision.

All times used for the final result must be from system A. If there is

a failure of system A, a calculated net time from system B must be

used following the same procedure as set out above. It is not

permitted to substitute time-of-day times from system B for use with

system A for the purpose of net time calculations.

For all events, system A must be connected to its respective A

photocell contact. System B must be separately connected to

another electronically isolated B photocell contact.

Refer to the FEI Timing Booklet for more details regarding cabling

and complete wiring descriptions, diagrams and start and finish line

installations.

All timing equipment and technical installation should be set up or

protected in such a way that danger to the competitors is avoided

where possible.

Synchronization of the timing systems must occur within 60 minutes

prior to the commencement of each event.

Synchronization of all systems must be maintained every day

throughout each event. Timers may not be resynchronized during

any competition.

Timers may be resynchronized between competitions.

For all other Games and Championships the same systems approach

is highly recommended.

Photocells

For Olympic Games and World Championships there must be two

photocell system(s) homologated by the FEI, installed at the start

and finish line. At each location, one is connected to system A. The

other is connected to system B. Procedures and regulations for

photocells and wireless impulse transmission systems are found in

the FEI Timing Booklet.

2.2.2 Hand Timing

Manual (hand) timing, completely separate and independent of the

electronic timing, must be used for all competitions listed in the FEI

Calendar. Stopwatches or hand operated battery powered timers

that are installed at both the start and the finish and capable of

expressing times to at least 1/100th (0.01) precision qualify as

proper hand timing devices. They must be synchronized prior to the

start of each event, preferably with the same time-of-day as system

A and system B. Printed records, either automatic or hand-written,

of recorded hand times must be immediately available at the start

and at the finish. Net times on course are derived from the

mathematical comparison of start and finish times. The above

FEDERATION

EQUESTRE

INTERNATIONALE

Requirements for Timing Equipment and Scoreboard page 4

paragraph will be added to the Memorandum for International

Jumping Events.

2.2.3 Presentation of times

Organizers shall provide appropriate facilities for continuous

presentation of all registered times of all competitors.

2.2.4 Timing without Cable for all FEI events.

Refer to the FEI Timing Booklet for a detailed discussion of how this

is possible using homologated wireless impulse radio or data

transmission or Time-of- Day comparison techniques.

2.3 Timing

2.3.1 Timing at the sensors

With electronic timing, the time is taken when a horse crosses the

start or finish line and triggers the beam between the photocells.

Time has to be taken on the breast of the horse. If the rider pushes

the horse’s head first there will be no correction. With hand timing

the time will be taken as above. The height of the sensors must be

identical at the start and finish lines.

If a time base is used in conjunction with the photocell, either

integrated or separate, then it must be set in time of day and be

synchronised with the main timer before the start of each

competition.

2.3.2 Timing Failure Protocol

In the case of a failure of the main electronic timing system (system

A), the results of the electronic back-up system (system B) will be

valid as per art. 2.2.1. For Olympic Games and World

Championships synchronized electronic timing systems with printers,

directly connected to the start and finish photocells is obligatory. In

case of a failure in the lines of the timing system between start and

finish, this back-up system will allow the correct calculation of the

times to 1/100ths of a second. In the case that calculated net times

from either system A or system B are not available for a competitor,

the calculated net manual time as per art. 2.3.2.1 will be considered

valid.

2.3.2.1 Hand Timing Corrections

Utilization of times taken by hand times may be used in the

official results after a correction has been calculated.

Calculation of the correction:

Calculate the difference between the times taken by hand and the

electronic times of the 5 competitors starting before the missing

time and the 5 starting after or if necessary the 10 nearest

competitors. The sum of the 10 time difference is divided by 10

to give the correction which must be applied to the hand time of

the competitor without an electronic time.

FEDERATION

EQUESTRE

INTERNATIONALE

Requirements for Timing Equipment and Scoreboard page 5

2.3.3 Print-out of time

The official timing strips from the printer will be given to the Foreign

Judge for review. They will be kept by the Event Organizer until the

official approval of the event or resolution of any appeal dealing with

timing or event results. At events where a complete back up system

is required this also applies.

A technical timing report form as prescribed by the FEI must

accompany the event results and must be reviewed and signed by

the FJ as his approval of the event. All printed records from system

A, system B and hand timing must be retained by the OC for a

period of three months after the competition or until resolution of

any appeal dealing with timing or event results.

2.3.4 Time correction

When the official printing timer allows manual input or correction of

a time, some type of indication (star, asterisk or other) concerning

any effected change must be printed on all relevant timing

documentation.

3. CRITERIA FOR APPROVAL OF TIMING SYSTEMS

3.1 Timers

3.1.1 The timer must have an internal (integrated) or directly

attached external printer. The start and finish times in time of day

must be printed directly and immediately through the timer’s printer

and stored in the timer’s memory. It must be possible to download

or reprint this data at a later stage. Printing only through a computer

is not allowed.

3.1.2 The timer must be able to operate in Time-of-Day. The output

of the time must always have the same precision (e.g. printer,

display, interface).

3.1.3 This printer must print at least in a chronological order the

time of day.

3.1.4 For each printed time of day there must be an indication of the

timing channel (start/finish/Judge button).

3.1.5 If it is possible to correct the time in the timer, the printer

must mark such a corrected time with a special character (asterisk)

indicating that manual intervention has been applied by the

operator.

3.1.6 The timer must work without power supply from the mains for

at least four hours at 0°C. It is compulsory to have a back-up

generator (or batteries) at Games and Championships.

3.1.7 The timer and printer must work at ambient temperatures

from 0° to 60°C.

FEDERATION

EQUESTRE

INTERNATIONALE

Requirements for Timing Equipment and Scoreboard page 6

3.1.8 The time of day mode must be possible in hours, minutes,

seconds and 1/1000th second, or better.

3.1.9 The timer must measure up to the 1/1000th second in time of

day mode.

3.1.10 Timer accuracy must be below +/- 10 PPM at a device

temperature from 0° to 60°C.

3.1.11 The aging of the quartz must be below +/- 3.0 PPM per year.

3.1.12 With adjusted quartz frequency the time drift must be less

than +/- 1.0 PPM at a constant temperature of 20°C.

3.1.13 The delay of impulses as treated by each timer channel input

may not exceed 1/100th second. The delay of impulses between and

for all channels must be constant with a precision better than

1/1000th second.

The timer must have a minimum of four independent channels: a

start channel, a stop channel, a channel for multi-timing purposes

and the judge’s interference button (manual start/stop).

3.1.14 It must be possible to synchronise the main and backup

timers to the same time of day.

3.1.15 The timer must meet the standards of the IEC (International

Electronic Commission). This means the timer must function

satisfactorily in its electromagnetic environment without introducing

intolerable electromagnetic disturbances to anything in that

environment.

3.2 Photocells

The technical concept of the photocell is not restricted by the FEI, although

it must be assured that the photocell cannot be influenced by external light

sources, such as the sun and its reflections, or radio systems (EMI) used in

proximity. The photocell must meet the standards for electronic devices in

the country that it is sold.

3.2.1 Accuracy

Sensing Time - The time delay from the instant the photocell is

triggered to the moment an output impulse is generated may not

exceed 0.01 sec. The time delay must be a fixed rate and equal for

all photocells in use. The precision must be better than 0.001 sec.

When a valid photocell impulse is generated there must be a

subsequent adjustable “lock-out” period that prevents the generation

of further impulses by the same horse. The impulse lock-out period

of the photocell must be adjustable from 0.01 second to 2 seconds.

3.2.2 Operating Distance

The photocell must work over a minimal distance of 20m (between

the photocell and the reflector or between the separate transmitter

FEDERATION

EQUESTRE

INTERNATIONALE

Requirements for Timing Equipment and Scoreboard page 7

and receptor). The maximum size of the reflector (if used) is 100

mm (in all directions).

3.2.3 Triggering Object

An 8 mm object moving with a speed of 10 km/h must not trigger

the photocell (measured at a distance of 2 m from lens of the

receiver).

A 100 mm object moving with a speed of 60 km/h must trigger the

photocell (measured at a distance of 2 m from lens of the receiver).

3.2.4 Temperature Range: – 10° C to 60° C

3.2.5 Power Supply

If the photocell is supplied power from the timing device (within the

same cable as the impulses) it needs no external power supply. If a

battery is used as the power supply (external or internal) the

Photocell must work for four (4) hours at 0 °C.

3.2.6 Homologation of photocells

Photocells sent to the testing laboratory for homologation must be

equipped on the emitter with two outputs (banana type or other)

which when short-circuited will immediately stop emission of the

infra-red beam (directly cut the current to the LED that creates the

signal) in order to make precise tests. The aim of the test is to

measure the delay between the moment the infra-red beam is cut

and the moment the impulse is generated by the photocell receptor.

3.3 Wireless Transmission Systems

The FEI recognizes the importance of wireless impulse transmission

systems in the arenas of FEI Jumping events and encourages their use

to facilitate the ease of set-up and functionality of modern jumping. It

should be noted however that any wireless system is more prone to

failure than a hardwired connection from the timer to the photocells.

The wireless radio device must meet the standards for electronic

devices in the country that it is sold.

The timekeepers must verify before the start of the event that the

wireless transmission is not disturbed by any other radio waves from

radios, TVs, wireless devices, remote controls etc used in proximity.

3.3.1 Accuracy

Sensing Time - The time delay from the instant the radio device is

triggered to the moment an output impulse is generated by the

receiver device may not exceed 1 (one) second. The time delay must

be the same for all radio channels in use within an accuracy of

0.001. The delay of impulses must be constant; the range must be

less than 0.001 second.

3.3.2 Operating Distance

The radio device must work over a minimal distance of 200m in open

terrain.

FEDERATION

EQUESTRE

INTERNATIONALE

Requirements for Timing Equipment and Scoreboard page 8

3.3.3Temperature Range: -10 to 60 °C

3.3.4 Power Supply:

Must work for four (4) hours at 0 °C

3.4 Downstream Processing System

3.4.1 Correction of the time must be possible

3.4.2 The truncation to 1/100th second must be made after the

calculation of the run time. The digits of the run time after the

1/100th second are discarded.

3.4.3 Minutes are to be converted into seconds before the total time

is displayed.

3.4.4 The type of competition (Table A or C) is to be programmed

into the system.

3.4.5 For Table C competitions, faults are to be converted into

seconds and added to the running time. The time limit (2 minutes

for courses less than 600m; 3 min for courses more than 600m) is to

be programmed into the system.

3.4.6 For Table A competitions, the program needs to calculate

penalties for faults and for exceeding the time allowed.

3.4.7 The time correction of four seconds for rebuilding an obstacle

must be added to the running time as soon as the clock is restarted.

3.4.8 The program needs to allow for the introduction of special

competitions.
