What is FEI?
‘FEI’ stands for ‘Fédération Equestre Internationale’ or International Federation for Equestrian Sport.
The FEI was founded in 1921 and is the international body governing equestrian sport recognised by the International Olympic Committee. The FEI is the only International Federation to govern and regulate a sport for both able-bodied and disabled athletes. Today, it is the sole controlling authority for 8 equestrian disciplines – jumping, dressage, eventing, driving, endurance, vaulting, reining and para-equestrian. While Arabs are used in all types of disciplines, they have become renowned as Endurance and Reining horses.
