In order for a horse to compete at international level under FEI Rules it must be registered with the FEI and have an FEI Recognition Card. The BEF and the competition disciplines are responsible for issuing these Recognition Cards. The Recognition Card is inserted with the Horse’s Passport into an FEI folder so that both documents are kept together.
This is mandatory for horses competing at most international FEI sanctioned events. Further information can be found on the FEI website.
If you are planning on competing at an FEI event and your horse requires an FEI Recognition Card and folder, please contact your discipline direct for information on how to apply. (Most disciplines require at least 6 weeks notice in advance before they can issue a Recognition Card).
Your horse's equine influenza vaccinations will need to be up to date in order for your FEI Registration to remain valid.
