Information for International Classes and Events


This is a check list of what you need to have in place before you can compete in any FEI event. 


Horses must have had their first two primary injections against equine influenza.

The FEI rules state that the horse's most recent booster must have been given within the six months and 21 days prior to the competition.

This may mean that you need to have an extra booster before your competition, but does not necessarily mean that you have to give the horse boosters every six months as it will depend on what your competition schedule is going forward.

Horses cannot have a booster within the seven days prior to the competition for FEI competitions.

You will need to make sure that your vaccination record in your horse's passport is up to date and complete showing the full history included the primary course and all yearly boosters – all passports will be checked.

All horses applying for an FEI registration for the first time MUST be microchipped.

FEI Horse and Rider Registrations
The FEI require all horses and riders to have an annual registration before they can compete at any level.  Registrations are valid from January to December and cost £17 per horse and £17 per rider.  You will be given an FEI number which needs to be entered on your entry forms.  Application forms can be downloaded from the right hand side of your screen and sent in to the BE office.

FEI Passports
Your horse will need an FEI Passport cover for any FEI competition if you are competing at CIC3* or above in the UK, or any competition outside of the UK. Contact the BE Membership team for more details on +44(0) 2476 698857.

The earliest a passport can be re-validated, is two months before the expiry date on the passport.

Entries for UK FEI events can be made online or by downloading an Application for Overseas Event form HERE.

Entries for FEI events abroad are made via the BE Office.  You need to contact Gemma Harriss on 02476 698860 or 

If you are uncertain whether you/your horse are qualified for the level that you wish to enter, please ring Gemma and she can check your qualifications.
