Officials

An official is a person who oversees a competition, or aspect thereof, by applying the rules of the sport. This may be directly relating to judgments on performance, time, score and/or upholding the principles of fair play and welfare of the horse. EA trains and accredits Officials at National level across a variety of disciplines. EA also work with the FEI in regards to accreditation and training of international level officials. Officials play a key role in ensuring the spirit of the game and/or event is observed by all and ensure that all athletes develop through their chosen sport and guarantee the competition is conducted within the spirit of the rules. It is essential that officials provide all people of varying ages the best possible sporting experience, which will ensure their continued participation and development in sport.
