Advisory - Dressage Veterinary Inspections at WEF CDI

WELLINGTON, Fla. Mar. 19--Veterinarians, following International Equestrian Federation directions, have begun partial enforcement of a long standing FEI rule requiring veterinary inspection for horses arriving for CDI competitions.

The first enforcement of the rule in the United States was applied this week at the Zada Enterprises CDI at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

David Distler, the senior FEI official in the U.S., said that the rule for veterinary inspections was long standing but had never been enforced in the U.S.

It is, however, standard procedure at CDI competitions throughout Europe.

"The FEI decided last year that it would begin enforcing the rule in the United States in 2008," he said.

"It was decided that veterinarians would take the temperatures of the horses when they arrived at the FEI stabling for the CDI but to forego the rest of the examination that is in the rules and is applied in Europe."
